A Request of the Utmost Importance

For real. Does anyone know what issue of What If? has the moment where The Rose uses Hobgoblin’s pumpkin bombs to kill both men? I can’t remember what the actual story was about at all, but I love that moment. Hobgoblin yells out for Spider-Man to save him. Spider-Man isn’t even in the room! It’s a great little commentary on the idea of a nemesis and it came in the form of a throwaway issue in a “oh, that’s sort of neat” series. That’s the magic of comics, man.

Was it this issue?

Pretty confident it wasn’t this one. But it seemed to go so well with the image above, I included it anyway. Buy both these issues because this series was fun for thirty or so issues.
