Spoiler SEASON 03 - EPISODE 13: Goblin War: Time dilation accelerator that was attached to Spot before he jumped into the portal is opening random portals and is ignoring them, until there was one portal that opened right in its path to suck it through. Makes you wonder what happened to Jonathan and Sylvia after last episode as they are trapped in this pocket dimension or whatever. People are having activities in the park, the portal device falls in a place where none of the people showed a few frames earlier pays attention to. One guy named Lenny sees it and places it in his pocket thinking it should bring him some cash. And he runs away as Peter and MJ walk behind him in the same shot. MJ tells Peter how she loves him, but recalls the villains she encounters, and calls Eddie Brock Venom... she never met or heard of Venom, and he wasn't on the news as the combined menace. She recalls shots of them from season 1, and said Hydroman came before Venom... and there goes the chance that he was filler, not like they didn't remind people of that episode in prior episodes. How does she think that Peter attracts trouble? Aside from Eddie Brock being a freak stalker. Cut to a pawn shop where old Lenny tries to sell the portal device he found in the park to a pawn shop owner who looks a bit like Jonathan Kent, he accidentally turns it on and opens a portal sucking merchandise in it, portal device was flying up until a TV hit it on the way dropping it away from the portal that was opened inside the building to go outside, and the portal went outside without breaking the roof. But it broke the banner and statue on the roof. Pedestrians are brilliant in that they run toward the danger zone, portal that grew in size and is sucking two people has no effect on the people nearby watching . Peter leaves MJ telling her it news, she understands and tells him to be careful. Spider-Man webs the two guys in the pawn shop to a wall to anchor them while he shuts the portal. The portal engine is on the pavement and is not being sucked in? Did getting hit by the TV on the way give it immunity to suckage? Hobgoblin comes to the scene to pick the device, he knew about the device cause he has a spy in Kingpin's organization, but how did he know he needs to find it in that exact spot at that exact time and have enough time to go to his hideout to pick up his suit and gadgets to...... And then Hobgoblin takes the device and the portal doesn't try to suck him in, but it sucks Spider-Man in. The portal was parallel to the street but now that Spider-Man webs Hobgoblin's glider to get out of it and the portal suddenly rotated 90 degrees upwards to be perpendicular to the road and closes up just like that. The whole portal affair makes no sense besides it is dangerous. Hobgoblin has the ability to know how to use devices without instructions or practice in this cartoon, from the first glider to the remote controlled glider to all these other gadgets in his man purse, and now the time dilation accelerator to get away after he chops the webline attached to his glider by a razor sharp disc. Spider-Man experiments making a web parachute and was successful on the first go, and drops in the water below. Cut to a bank where money is being sucked via portal to Hobgolin's hideout, and NOW Hobgoblin anchors himself by holding into an iron bar inside the safe, he closes the portal and lets go of the bar to enter the now closing portal, but because it closes on his cape and cuts a small part of it after he did not time the thing to absolute perfection he comes to the conclusion the device's battery is running out. The conclusion is a mistake people can make, but the rest of the action is pure stupid. Hobgoblin startles his spy at Fisk's facility and shoves him to give him a power pack for the portal engine he has, spy guy gives Hobby the last power pack cause they stopped making these once they lost the teleportation device, Hobgoblin doubts that and laughs a bit. Kingpin and Langdon are watching news footage of the portal, when no channel crew were near by as long as the incident took place. Hobgoblin pops up through a portal and Kingpin summons his semi-useless mercenary security members (only times they were really useful is the time they blew up Fisktronics to delete evidence, even then Wilson Fisk wasn't please) again to surround Hobgoblin. Hobgoblin: "I have a proposition for you" Kingpin: "The device you used to enter my building and I saw the portal you passed through to come behind my back with? I'm seriously unironically shocked." Hobgoblin: "I have a proposition for you, let's steal together using your portal device, gimme a battery" Langdon wishes that they knew who the masked maniac is, and Kingpin figures who he should be asking. Cut to a big house with the announcement of Felicia's engagement to Jason, Peter is holding MJ, Harry is still mad and repeats saying "Oh you do remember me" for the third or so time after MJ left him and months (more or less) later went to Peter as her boyfriend again. Harry walks away still not a fan of the thing, MJ goes to talk to him. Jonah holds Parker by the shoulder to ask him why he isn't developing pictures of the portal incident, Peter assures him things are handled and Felicia interrupts by holding Pete's shoulder to introduce him to Jason, spider-sense tingles stopping him from shaking hands, Fisk comes between Jason and Peter to say hello in turn. Wilson sees Norman and walks to him, Jason is babbling to Peter about Felicia's plans of redecoration, Peter wants to listen to Fisk and Osborn's conversation instead.Peter asks for a moment away and he has his chance to go out and listen to the conversation of the Fisk and Osborn. Fisk tells Norman about his plans and new associate, Norman panics once he hears the name Hobgoblin, he doesn't want to talk about it. Fisk threatens Harry -good terms, remember them?- to bend Norman's arm to force him to reveal that info about the identity of the Hobgoblin, and the two walk back inside after Norman tells Wilson to meet him in Oscrop at 2:00. Spider-Man was listening, he jumps down behind straight behind Kingpin, and is annoyed that he has to leave MJ again if he wants to go after Kingpin and Hobgoblin. Felicia grabs his shoulder and asks him if he came to wish her good luck, Spidey says yes, and asks if she loves him, she replies with "Do you have other plans?" and he replies "No, I only wish for you to be happy" and swings away. Norman is in Oscorp, he remembers the Green Goblin and tries to close his ears. Goes to wash his face and sees him in the mirror, a chat happens and a split personality (original for this show, starting with this episode, no split personality in classic comics, not even in the first GG episode) is launched. Cut to Fisk tower where he apparently forgot his arrangement with Norman Osborn for the night, and it looks like Spider-Man found his way to the safe of the national gold repository he heard Kingpin said he wanted to rob, none of the guards were alert to his presence there. Kingpin's enforcers barge in through the portal to be met with Spider-Man's webbing after they tranquilize the guards with sleeping gas grenades. The enforcers have gas masks on, Spider-Man doesn't , and he did not lose consciousness because plot, and he jumps through the portal to tease the group of Fisk, Hobgoblin, and Langdon. Spider-Man jumps on the large glider to close the portal, Hobgoblin controls the glider to fly and Spider-Man picks up the portal engine. The Goblin wants to blow Spider-Man who warns him against destroying the device in his hand, and Spider-Man swings down to be easily slapped by the overpowered Kingpin and is crush hugged by him after the portal machine falls from his hand. Remember the shackles Kingpin could not break lose from in 'Enter the Green Goblin' and Spider-Man pulled off with ease? Showing Spider-Man is the stronger of the two? Forget those, just see him be a squeazy toy duck. Green Goblin blows up the wall to enter and hunt Hobgoblin who wished Green Goblin was just a rumor, they fight by tossing bombs at each other and evading them, Green Goblin picks up the desk and tosses it at Hobgoblin, shocking him. The two large goblin gliders collide in mid air, and the one Green Goblin was on wasn't damaged cause... the green one has super human strength? The horn of the Chrysler building is blown up and then two goblins glide away leaving the place, Spider-Man swings after them and Kingpin is mad he lost the portal machine. Green Goblin is shooting lasers at Hobgoblin through the city, the two argue, and Hobgoblin flies through a portal and closes it getting away. Spider-Man lands on Green Goblin and tries to talk him out of this hunt, Goblin bumps Spider-Man's head on an advertisement billboard to drop him off his shoulders, and throws bombs at him until Spider-Man falls in the water. Green Goblin flies away, and Spider-Man swims out of the water back to the shore. Cut to Jason's study where Felicia thinks of redecorating the place cause it's cramped, all the space in the room and she thinks it's cramped. Felicia thinks of a wall she thinks needs to be removed and knocks on it, the hollow sound behind it raises her curiosity, so she grabs the pillar by the wall until she finds a button sliding that wall for the Hobgoblin suit to drop. I wonder how many times did he have to deal with that problem as he slides the door. Hobgoblin's costume and armory are in front of her, Hobgoblin pops behind her telling her "Now you've done it. I've had everything" and she's still surprised to see him in the house of the man she agreed to marry. Oh look, Jason Phillip Macendale is the Hobgoblin. That mystery was kind of well played to be honest, even if you recognize the voice of Mark Hamill and haven't been a comic reader when you've first seen it, but she shouldn't be shocked at this point. Jason tells her either she marries him or she dies, Green Goblin breaks into the house saying he knows everything about Hobgoblin in response to his surprise, kicks his gun, uses the portal device, and kidnaps the duo of Hobgoblin and Felicia Hardy, taking them to Oscorp where Spider-Man announced he'd find them. Green Goblin is lowering both Hobgoblin and Felicia into a vat of acid while chattering, he laughs and Spidey webs his mouth, and web picks his glider to toss it in the acid. GG travels through portals to cut Spider-Man's webline as he's swinging to get both Felicia and Jason and grabs him from the leg, Spider-Man enters the portal to beat him and leave to save Felicia and Jason, then he tosses a razor disc on the portal device to break it, but it's much stronger than 95% of American cartoon devices (especially in the 90s) that immediately explode, but it's still usable so travels through it to escape. Felicia asks Jason if he ever loved her, he said he loved her looks and money, Felicia cries over her ruined wedding plans. Felicia and Spidey look from a high point as cops haul Jason Goblin away, she foreshadows her future in the next season by saying "I'm like a black cat", and their scene ends. Green Goblin exists the portal using the broken device with low power in the next day (what are the rules of that portal device?), narrates for the audience, announces that he will eliminate his enemies, and that he will modify portal machine. And Mary Jane is neglected, who cares why? .................................................. 2.75/5 faulty glider physics. It's a weak episode, one of the episodes that don't have Madamme Web after her introduction should be a better one, not a weak episode.
