Things I Like: Norman Osborn/Green Goblin (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man)

I'm something of a scientist myself Norman Osborn Spider-Man 1

The Green Goblin had always been a great Spider-Man villain and they did a great job with this incarnation of Norman Osborn. At the start of the movie, he’s something of a scientist himself and he also owns a large company.

I thought they did a good job with the father-son relationship between him and Harry Osborn. Harry is in many ways, not like his father, and they created a lot of drama. But you can tell, both of them love each other when the time calls for it.

Norman wasn’t really bad until he needed a government contract to keep his company afloat. Which meant he had to create something to make super-soldiers, making the test person himself.

Instead of dying, he becomes crazy and super-strong. Plus with his Batman-like wealth, he has gadgets to increase the carnage.

He takes quick notice of Spider-Man and offers him “friendship” so they could be evil together, but he’s turned down.

I liked how he figured out it was Peter Parker. What are the odds though?

Their fights were really good, and I liked how he made himself known to Peter and pretended like the sane half of him was still there.

Which only comes out when Norman knows he’d make Harry ashamed if his son had found out about his alter-ego.
