    The Hypno-Hustler recently made an appearance in Avenging Spiderman. They didn't update him at all, just made him out to be an insane, incredibly out-of-touch goofball:

    Love Rocket Racer personally....sure his whole costume and get up were pretty goofy but I could live with it.

    Didnt Gibbon and a couple other appear in a Spec Spidey issue, as some group of super-villain rejects? As I recall, Beetle was also part of that group.

    And hahhaah...Hyno Hustler wow....never thought I would see him again

    Rocket Racer and Fool Killer are two of the biggest losers I can think of for Spidey so far.....

Nice done in one (which probably didnt happen in any which way that i have described). Goofy and tragic = double win

    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Streamlining things even more, given crappy memory dude's self-evident superpower, continuity wouldn't be any sort of consideration at all. Not even such basic info as character names!

    That was played for laughs though. I consider characters to be more goofy when they are meant to be taken seriously.

    And while I appreciate the impassioned defense of Gaard from a couple of you, he solidly falls into that category for me. His goofy gimmick took away from his tragic story, and simply made it cringeworthy for me. But hey, I never thought I'd see people defending Gaard it's nice to know that every character has a few fans out there! ;)
