Hobie Brown Hornet

Hobie had come out of his superhero career to fix things with his wife. Mindy, everything to make her feel comfortable in their life together. However, their date is interrupted when the skies are raining symbiotes over the city, and Hobie immediately recognizes them for what they are. Luckily, he’s still wearing his Marauder outfit and takes action to save as many people as possible. After pulling Mindy out of the fray, he goes to her lab to retrieve something that is more suitable for taking on the horde of symbiotes, a new and improved version of Hornet’s costume.

Introduced 1998 Sensational Spider-Man # 27 by Todd DeZago and Mike Wieringo, the Hornet was one of four unique new identities that Spider-Man assumed to clear his name during the events of the “Identity Crisis” storyline. The suit was designed by Mary Jane, and the gauntlets were based on Ben Reilly’s own weapons, but the wings and harness that allowed Peter to fly were designed by Hobie himself. At the time, they were too heavy for someone without super strength to handle, but that was a long time ago, and the technology has only gotten better since then. With that in mind, Hobie donned the armored suit and left to deal with the ongoing crisis.

Seeing the Hornet in action again is without a doubt one of the most unexpected side effects of King in black, but that does not mean it is not welcome. It’s been several years since anyone took up the Hornet mantle, and there’s probably no one more appropriate than Hobie.

If the Hornet is truly Hobie’s new superhero identity, it could help him overcome his troubled past, once and for all, allowing him to chart a new course through the Marvel Universe as an absolute hero. Even if he doesn’t have the most experience with symbiotes, Hobie is still more than ready to give Spider-Man a healing hand.
