  • Show Within a Show: Had their own series on Disney XD. Sadly it was not renewed for a third season, forcing them back into a life of crime.

A ruthless and cunning supervillain who appropriated the Green Goblin's technology and made it his own.

  • Cain and Abel: Roderick Kingsley, the heartless, multiple-murderer Hobgoblin, and his twin brother Daniel, the mostly spineless, but well-meaning wimp that Roderick can manipulate and terrify with ease.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: As Roderick Kingsley
  • Dirty Coward: Subverted. While his twin brother Daniel really was a spineless wimp who lived up to this trope, Roderick merely made himself look like a Dirty Coward to get people to underestimate him. This usually led to him sabotaging his competitors' companies and destroying their reputations before buying them up cheap, or to keep anyone from thinking that he could be a cold-blooded Magnificent Bastard like the Hobgoblin.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Hobby.
  • Jack the Ripoff
  • Manipulative Bastard: He had his twin brother Daniel acting as his willing victim.
    • And very recently he's been traveling throughout the world, choosing a new supervillain identity for each new country he sets up shop in. Once he's built up a reputation, he has a capable individual take his place, for a cut of the profits of course. He's turned supervillainy into a franchise.
    • He's also using an alliance with Morgana le Fay to learn sorcery.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He has his weaknesses, such as vanity and an ego. But he is aware of them, and can make himself overcome them. His top three priorities are, in this order, his life, his freedom, and money/power. Anything else, especially revenge, is secondary; he'll take it if it comes, but will abandon it as soon as it puts him at risk.
  • Villain Team-Up: He has allied himself to Morgana le Fay.

  • Elemental Shapeshifter
  • Fantastic Racism: Victim of it. Literally did nothing illegal, or even morally wrong. Was working for OsCorp as a demolitions expert, and got caught in an explosion that was targeting the Green Goblin. Prospero used sorcery to transform him into a being made of water, and scared and confused, he followed Gobby out of the hospital. Was later captured off-camera, and thrown in the Vault, still having done absolutely nothing wrong.
  • Fusion Dance: An accidental one with Sandman, merging them both into the entirely unwanted form of "Mud-Thing." Months later, no solution has been found to separate them.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Developed this toward his attorney, Sharon Banks.
