List Rules Upvote the best comic book characters who have been Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, Grey Goblin, Demogoblin or Proto-Goblin

We’re ranking every Green Goblin in the Marvel comics universe. Along with all Green Goblin incarnations that appeared in the comic books, this list also includes all Hobgoblins, Grey Goblins, and other Goblin characters. Who is your favorite Goblin?

Everyone knows the original Green Goblin Norman Osborn, but do you know the Indian Green Goblin or the Goblin Queen? Several heroes have worn the suit and used the Goblin alias, like Spider-Man, Phil Urich, and Mary Jane Watson. Other comic book characters who were Goblins include Harry Osborn, original Hobgoblin Roderick Kingsley, and the Grey Goblin Gabriel Stacy. 

Vote for the best Goblins in comics. This ranking of every Goblin displays pictures of the characters in costume and their comic book appearances.
