The Goblin Prince returns in ‘Dark Web: X-Men’ #1

Everyone’s favorite crop-top Goblin Prince look returns today in the Dark Web tie-in.

Spoilers ahead for Dark Web: X-Men #1. You’ve been warned.

Marvel Comics has had its fair share of cheesecake but rarely is there great beefcake unless, of course, you count Havok’s costume as the Goblin Prince. That costume makes a triumphant return, but where did we first see it?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

First appearing during the Inferno event, the Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor gave the costume to Havok. As seen in X-Men #242, Havok wears a tattered version of his costume that matches Madylen Pryor’s crop-top look before.

In the following chapter in X-Factor #38 of the crossover event, we see Havok reluctantly helped the X-Men defeat the Goblin Queen.

The events of the story arc took an emotional toll on Havok, as we saw in Hellions last year.

It seems he can’t escape Madelyne Pryor, however, as we find out in Dark Web: X-Men #1, out today from creators Gerry Duggan and Rod Reis.

It appears Havok is less interested in being the Goblin Prince this go around, though! Make no mistake, it’s a great callback, and it’s fun to see his reaction. This is only a fraction of the story. I highly recommend you check out the full issue.

How do you think this story will play out? Will Madelyne Pryor get Havok to be her Goblin Prince again? How long will we see Havok in the tattered new costume? Let us know in the comments.
