The heroes, primarily Autopsy and The Timeless, track down the Hobgoblin. They confront him in, presumably, his office with backup from the other heroes. They fight their way through his minions and some hired superhumans. However, Autopsy makes some rookie mistakes and charges a villain who dodges him. The villain was standing in front of the window and Autopsy rushed straight through it falling 30 stories down. The other heroes try to make their escape, but Hindrance tries to take down the Hobgoblin. The fight goes badly as she is outmatched. At that point she attempts a desperate maneuver and creates a gravity well. It’s of such magnitude, that she can’t control it. The gravity well forms into a black hole sucking half of the building in and Hindrance struggles to escape. Her strength gives out as she watches the Hobgoblin fly away cackling. Hindrance dies and the other heroes can’t pursue the Hobgoblin, who escapes in the chaos.
After this, Autopsy redoubles his efforts. He goes investigating and cracks some skulls to get information. It’s difficult at first, but he teams up with Moon Knight and Shooting Star. The three of them track down a list of headquarters. Some weapons and supply deals, some money laundering, and other deals. Eventually, the trail leads to the Hobgoblin and they fight him in another underground headquarters. The fight is quick and brutal. Hobgoblin wipes the floor with the trio. He has some grunts take the three of them away to be tortured and find out who’ve they’ve told his location to and what they know.
Moon Knight is first and Autopsy is started not long later. In a short break, Autopsy is able to escape and free the other two before they are killed. Autopsy rescues Shooting Star as they are about to begin, beating the two grunts. Then they find Moon Knight. They find that the Hobgoblin’s men have mutilated Moon Knight scarring him badly and plucking out an eye. Moon Knight refuses to give up though. He pulls his cowl over his face and presses on. The three of them pursue the Hobgoblin one more time, likely to be to their death. Luckily, at that point, they are able to get in contact with Seth who had been looking for them. The four heroes burst into Hobgoblin’s garage and do battle with him in his hangar. They come out victorious and dethrone him as the ruler of the Dublin underworld. Autopsy keeps his strange promise to send his elementary school-aged sister, who was crippled by the Hobgoblin, the terrifying mask off the defeat villain
