Up there in the sky, it must be the hobgoblin! Wait, that’s not the Hobgoblin… Ha! No! It’s the greeeen goblin.
That’s right, very stable genius Norman Osborn is here to doll out emotional abuse, wrecking meatballs, and his insane version of justice – all from his underwater lair. So where does this sinful daddy rank in the Sins of the Fathers arc of the show? If it’s low, he will be a might sorry goblin…
Then in for our comic book origins, we look back at the bizarre origins of ol’ Gobby in The Amazing Spider-Man #14 (1964) all the way through to his unmasking in ASM #40 (1966). Along the way, we discuss the infamous BJ Cosmos, how Aunt May is still the worst, and even read some classic Stan Lee fanmail. Click here for the comic panels and additional notes.
