Jason Macendale was a CIA operative who went bad. Electing to use his talents for personal, criminal gain, he created the Jack O’ Lantern persona and hired himself out to the Maggia crime family. Over the years he has run afoul of Spider-Man many times, but has never really presented much of a challenge for the wall-crawler.

Believing that the first Hobgoblin was dead, Macendale chose to appropriate his identity while someone else took over as Jack O’ Lantern. That Jack became a member of the evil Red Skull’s cadre of henchmen the Skeleton Crew, while Macendale continued to serve the Maggia.

Luck ran out on both Macendale and the new Jack O’ Lantern. The Skeleton Crew was defeated and arrested by Captain America, the Falcon, and Diamondback, while the original Hobgoblin returned, murdered Macendale, and reassumed his costumed identity.

The second Jack O’ Lantern has since escaped from custody, and presents every bit as much of a threat as his or her predecessor.
