HAMSTERDAM LOVES AYDS

So you thought there could never be anything more inappropriate than a weight-loss remedy named AYDS during the early 80s? Well, think again. I present to you Hemo-Goblin. This is a character from DC Comics that thankfully appeared in only one issue, but here is his story, and I'm dead serious that this happened in the modern era when people should have known better (1988).

Hemo-Goblin is a character that was dispatched to kill the "New Guardians", but that's not really that interesting. What is interesting is that he was created by White Supremacist groups to eliminate non-whites by infecting them with the AIDS virus (not yet known as HIV). He apparently infected several of the New Guardians before he was taken into police custody and died therein of AIDS complications while in custody.

Hemo-Goblin, hemoglobin, the greatest medical catastrophe of our generation, who's really counting the details?
