Norman Osborn is the son of wealthy business man 'Amberson Osborn' and housewife 'Mary Osborn', and is the current head of the 'Osborn Family', an extremely wealthy and influential family going back centuries in time.

He had a fairly decent childhood, up until the age of five when his father, Amberson, lost most of the family fortune after the failure and following bankruptcy of his invention company, leading Amberson down a path to becoming an abusive alcoholic.

Young Norman and his mother Mary would often, if not always, be the unfortunate subjects of Amberson's merciless and uncontrollable wrath in order to compensate for his own horrible failures.

Years of psychological and physical tirades completely and utterly shattered Norman's mother Mary, and on a cold winter morning a 7-year old Norman walked down to breakfast, only to witness his own mother dangling from the ceiling by a phone cord.

No notes were left, and nothing stood now in the way between Norman and his father's endless, drunken rampages. 

This terrible loss lead the young boy to realize that in this world, only the strong survived, so he promised himself never to be 'weak'.

This realization also caused him to kill the family's dog, seeing it as, "One less mouth to feed".

On one stormy and thunderous night, in order to cure his son's fear of the dark, Amberson locked Norman alone in one of the family's dark, empty houses.

And this is where Norman thought he encountered a horrible "green, goblin-like" monster, stalking him throughout the mansion. Alone in the dark, Norman feared the monster would eat him once lightning struck, and darkness was replaced by light, and so he came to pray that the darkness would last just a little bit longer. That night, he realized that the darkness is better than the light.

Traumatizing events like these during his childhood likely made Norman develop an insatiable need for power and wealth, as so he would not become a failure like his father, or a weakling such as his mother.

He sought to regain honer and glory to the Osborn name.

And he would stop at nothing to reach this goal.

Norman's teenage years would be spent studying in school, never allowing himself a moment of peace, as all his time was poured into his academics. What little time he did have for himself was spent amassing as much money as he possibly could, as he knew he could not count on his father for financial support.

Norman eventually went to Empire State University where he studied chemistry and electrical engineering. It was on ESU that he meet Emily.

They became friends, and fell deeply in love, and despite his hunger for power and wealth, she was able to provide some balance to the young man. Norman and Emily graduated, married and had a son named Harold 'Harry' Osborn.

Norman loved Emily tremendously, but the good times were not to last, and Emily died shortly after Harry's birth and Norman is left a miserable, misguided, insane, single father. Without Emily there to give his life any light, he re-dedicates himself fully to his hunt for wealth and power, neglecting his son Harry in the process, choosing instead to shower his son with material goods instead of actually being there for him.

Emily's death changed everything for Norman and if she hadn't died, he'd probably be an entirely different person.

His light had been extinguished, leaving nothing but darkness.

After graduating in business and chemistry majors, Norman worked for several years, taking any jobs that he could in order to save up enough money, and after taking a few major loans, he founded his own company, 'Oscorp', alongside his old science professor at ESU, 'Doctor Mendel Stromm'.

In little over a year, Oscorp Tower would stand tall over the city of New York, a beacon of scientific discovery and a constant reminder as to who now owned the city, and all the people in it.

In the years that followed Osborn would go on to become a very successful and wealthy, yet cold-hearted and ruthless businessman. These qualities would serve him well however, as Oscorp would go on to become one of the most successful and powerful multibillion-dollar multinational corporations in the entire world.

However Osborn's lust for power was insatiable, and his intent was never to share this power with anyone that he saw as lesser than himself, and when Stromm borrows money from one of the company accounts, Norman Osborn seizes the opportunity and turns Stromm over to the authorities for embezzlement.

With Stromm in jail Norman is left the sole owner and CEO of one of the most profitable corporations on the planet.

After Stromm is arrested Norman finds notes in his office of a biogenic chemical compound designed to enhance a humans physical and mental abilities, similar to the 'Super-Soldier serum', although much more superior, and so much more complex.

Wanting to sell this revolutionizing new formula to the highest bidder, Osborn tries to re-create it in secret, following Professor Stromm's notes. In order to perfect the compound, Osborn uses his own employees as test subjects.

After multiple catastrophic failures, Osborn finds new, secret additional notes left by Stromm and Norman is certain that these new notes are the missing pieces to completing the formula!

A tired but determined Osborn continues the experiments alone in the privacy of his laboratory at home. He works vigorously all throughout the night until at the crack of dawn, the mixture turns a bright green. He gazes down at his 'success', his numb fingers grasping around the tube containing the Formula, knowing he held the power of a God in the palm of his hand.

However the serum was unstable! And when the morning sun peered in through the window, the formula exploded in his face and the room collapsed around him, burying him alive. He is found and hospitalized, and due to his massive injuries the doctors believe he's going to die. But, to everyone's amazement he recovers at an incredible, super-human rate.

After he awakens in the hospital, he realizes that he had been granted strength above any mortal man.

He realized the serum had made of him a GOD in human form.

And from the ashes of the fire, the GREEN GOBLIN was born and MADNESS unleashed!!

"This planet is overpopulated.

Only a handful of people truly matter...

Everyone just so much CHAFF.

So now I have to separate the chaff from the wheat.

And with the Goblin at my side, I can finally accomplish this!"

-  Norman Osborn / Green Goblin


"In clinical terms, the words psychotic and psychopathic are far from synonymous... but in Norman Osborn's case, both apply. I'd characterise him as a bipolar psychotic with concurrent aspects of psychopathic megalomania and malignant narcissism. In layman's terms, a lethal cocktail of intersecting personality disorders that makes him one of the most dangerous human beings on the planet."

                                                           - Psychologist Leonard Samson

Osborn is a true and genuine psychopath, he is madly sadistic, unpredictably wild, and completely capable of committing unspeakable atrocities without any sort of remorse for his victims. He is also extremely manipulative, dangerously shrewd, and has a cold, calculating demeanour. He is also extremely narcissistic, believing himself to be the epitome of humanity and superior to all others and as such, expects all else to bow to his will.

He is quick to anger, and does not tolerate disrespect. He loathes those who are intellectually inferior, cowardly, or otherwise, in his mind, 'flawed'. He is shown to be passionate, driven, and self-made, and loathes failure.

And now, over to his psyche. While it is known that he always were somewhat mentally unstable, the formula greatly diminished his already fragile grip on reality. This increased mental instability causes him to sometimes be extremely impulsive, not thinking before plunging into a potentially dangerous situations, making it relatively easy to lure him into a trap.

Osborn also suffers from the delusion that he is invincible, claiming that "not even death could defeat him!".

This has caused him to fight when at a severe disadvantage, resulting in his defeat. Overall, Osborn is a dangerous man to play with. 

His intellect and wit, combined with his madness, makes him extremely hazardous to be around.

↓ Below is a delicious recipe for an Osborn.       

  1. Pour the dissociative personality disorder and the psychopathy into the mixture; mix well with hazardous chemicals. Combine the loss of your wife, resentment towards your child and fear. Stir this fine mixture into the chemical liquid 1 cup at a time, until it turns a lovely shade of paranoid schizophrenic. Turn it out onto a lightly bloodied surface and knead 20 times.
  2. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes until he experiences psychosis, then in a small bowl, stir together the obsessive compulsion disorder, bipolar disorder and narcissistic personality disorder.
  3. On a lightly bloodied surface, roll all of this out into a large rectangle, slice into pieces and place cut side up in a lightly greased 10x15 baking pan. Cover and let rise 30 minutes or cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until he turns murky green.
  5. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes before murder.

Osborn is on many various medications  and should he, for some reason, suddenly stop taking these, he'd slowly drift into madness -- becoming a raving madman with no anchor to reality what so ever. It is critical that he is kept on medication for the sake of his health, and the health of those around him. You don't want this bastard becoming more unhinged than he already is...


"That's enough. You don't get to do 'one day.' Tomorrow belongs to me."

                             - Osborn

Genius level intellect: Even before consuming the Goblin formula, Norman was extremely smart and intelligent, extremely skilled with mathematics and science, possessing an immense knowledge of chemistry and the side-effects of drugs on humans and animals. The Goblin Formula enhanced Osborn's mental capacities and creative talents, making him a true genius capable of making progress in advanced areas of genetics, robotics, engineering, and applied chemistry that most professional scientists can scarcely comprehend.

Superhuman Strength: Norman, after becoming the Goblin, became incredibly strong. As the Green Goblin, he can easily overpower humans by lifting them up with one hand or by hurling them around. He can also lift extremely heavy objects, crush and break through wood panels and templates, bend metal, and can punch through glass without gaining injury. As shown on many occasions, the Green Goblin can match Spider-Man's strength, being able to lift approximately ten tons.

Superhuman Speed: Norman, thanks to the Goblin formula, can run and operate at superhuman speeds.

His overall body equilibrium is also heightened to inhumane levels.

Superhuman Stamina: Norman, thanks to the Goblin formula, can operate or maintain his movements for prolonged periods of time without suffering from the effects of fatigue.

Superhuman Durability: The formula also fortified all of Osborn's bodily tissues, making them far tougher and more resistant to injury than normal humans, able to withstand blows and hits that would render a normal human being unconscious, or dead.

Superhuman Agility and reflexes: The Goblin's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are all enhanced to levels beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete. His reflexes are similarly enhanced and are superior to those of any ordinary human being.

Regenerative Healing Factor: If Osborn does sustain injury, his body's increased metabolism allows him to heal damaged tissue much faster and more extensively than a normal human is capable of. He can heal from injuries that would prove lethal to an ordinary human. For example, Osborn survived being impaled by his Goblin Glider and made a full recovery in a few short weeks, with only a scar left on his chest, but is by no way immune to death. However his ageing process seems to have slowed down immensely.



In addition to hiding his identity and contributing to his imposing appearance, Goblin's mask serves other purposes. It has a built in gas filter and the lenses have special visions, like infrared vision, night vision, and scanners. One of the mask's ears carries a high-gain antenna for an internal comm-link, allowing the Goblin to stay in contact with his allies. The comm-link can also scan police radios and other communication frequencies.


The Goblin's suit is made out of a strong nanofibre with insulating properties, shielding him from harmful chemicals and heat, electricity and other hazardous elements.

It also protects him from gunshots and explosions to a mild degree.


Armed with micro-circuited filaments which channel pulsed discharges of electricity at nearly 10,000 volts. It also has micro-LED's which can be activated in order to surprise and blind his opponent. A hypodermic needle with a sedative or hallucinogenic content could also extend from his palm, and the tips of his fingers can disperse a cloud of chemical gas of different varieties.

Belt and 'Bag of Tricks':

They held all of Goblin's gadgetry and hand held weaponry such as his iconic Pumpkin Bombs, razor bats, etc....


The boots are able to magnetically lock on to the Goblin glider so that he does not accidentally fall.

The Pumpkin Bombs are the iconic and most frequently used weapon of the Green Goblin.

They come in a plethora of different forms, some of which are shown below

  • Pumpkin Bomb; It is, simply put, an Oscorp standard issue explosive grenade disguised as a Pumpkin Jack O lantern. It has an effective casualty radius of about 20 meters and produce enough heat to burn through 10 mm of thick sheet steel.
  • Flaming fragmentation Pumpkin; Once the pumpkin explodes it disperses searing hot, usually flaming pieces of steel in all directions, literally raining fire down from above. 
  • Incendiary Pumpkin; When thrown against a hard surface the pyrotechnic contents would instantly ignite and set it's target on fire and release choking fumes of phosphorous pentoxide and sulphur dioxide.
  • Stun Pumpkin; Produces a blinding flash of light without causing permanent injury. The flash makes vision impossible for approximately ten seconds, until the eye restores itself to its normal, unstimulated state.
  • Anti-Tank Pumpkin; Designed to specifically target and destroy the armour of most modern military vehicles.
  • Chemical Pumpkin; Highly toxic chemical weapon that upon inhalation causes vomiting, violent coughing, muscle convulsions, bleeding from the eyes, mouth and ears, and blackening of the skin (necrosis), followed by an agonizing death within 10–20 seconds of exposure.
  • Hallucinogenic Gas Pumpkin: Releases a gas which triggers vivid hallucinations for who ever breaths it.
  • Knockout Gas: A pumpkin that discharges a thick trail of chemical gas which renders any who breaths it unconscious within a few short seconds.
  • EMP pumpkin: Bomb which, upon detonation, emits an electromagnetic pulse, disabling all electronics within its blast radius for a long to medium period of time. It will effect all electronics, up to and including drones, sentries, electronic sights, robots and exoskeletons.


Writer is a very busy person, and so replies may sometimes take a little time. Please have patience.
21+ due to strong language, gore, sexual content, physical and psychological abuse. Norman's not nice.
Saying this, EVERYTHING that Osborn does has no reflection on who I am as a person. Meaning that just because he is nasty, it does not mean that I am.

Canon characters, OCs, AUs, and Crossovers all welcome equally.
