I started reading comics when Flash was accused of secretly being the Hobgoblin.
Although, Flash should have been red flagged for any extended access by anyone anywhere because he had been Doctor Dooms "prisoner" for long enough to be brain washed and implanted with viruses or curses that doom could activate as a doomsday contingency.
Avenging Spider-Man this month was rooted in who everyone was and not who they are.
I wonder if there are any really old bullies, who after his secret identity became public knowledge relished their memories of beating the shit of Captain America? not claiming that they are villains, but considering how few people on the planet can claim honestly to have won a fight with Captain America, it's a gold level of exclusivity.
