Normie Osborn has led a very full life for someone so young. His life has been in danger since before he was even born, but that's an unfortunate consequence of being the son and grandson of two Green Goblins.

”The Return of the Hobgoblin”

It was his notorious bloodline that caused his pregnant mother, Liz Osborn, to be kidnapped by the original Hobgoblin, who hoped to learn the secrets of the original Green Goblin. The criminal also threatened to "spare the world the birth of another mad Osborn" if Liz and his other captive, Mary Jane Watson didn't cooperate. Harry Osborn tried to intervene to save his wife and unborn son, but he also needed to be rescued by Spider-Man after the warehouse they had been held captive in caught fire. (Amazing Spider-Man #261) Liz gave birth soon afterward. (Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 1) #263)

”Trick of the Light”

Normie was nearly kidnapped a second time soon after his birth by none other than his own grandfather. Norman decided that Spider-Man would be the true heir to the Osborn Legacy and turned his attention away from Normie. (Peter Parker: Spider-Man (vol. 2) #25)

Normie was raised by his parents, unaware that his grandfather had faked his death and was living in Europe. As Normie grew older, he showed a strong hatred of Spider-Man, demonstrated by his repeated crushing of his Spider-Man action figure and muttering, "Kill the Spider...break his back...Kill the Spider...break his back."

”The Face in the Mirror”

This hatred was probably caused by the fact that the second Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale) attacked his home, also looking for the secrets of Norman Osborn’s strength formula. (Web of Spider-Man #47)


Both Normie and Mary Jane were infected with SoHo sickness, caused by contaminated water. The chemicals had been dumped by Dagney Forrester and her brother Cedric. They were hoping to create a formula to create super powers, which made Dagney into Corona. (Spectacular Spider-Man (vol. 1) #176) Harry and Peter worked on an antidote for the illness, saving Normie but not Dagney. (Spectacular Spider-Man (vol. 1) #177)

”The Osborn Legacy”

As Harry slipped back into the Green Goblin identity, the stress took its toll on Liz. At dinner, Normie walked into the dining room with a Jack o’lantern that he had found in his bedroom after his nap. Mark nervously told him to put it down but before Normie could do so, gas sprayed from the Jack o’lantern, putting all three of them to sleep. They woke in Harry’s childhood home, seated around a large dining room table. The Green Goblin welcomed them home and gave a toast to the Osborn family. Seeing that Normie was uncomfortable, the Goblin swooped him up and danced him around. It was just daddy, he said. He’d come back just like he’d promised and they were all going to be happy. Liz bolted for the door but saw it had been sealed off by brick. Mark tried to tell the Goblin that they could get him help, for which he hit him with a pumpkin bomb. Goblin was furious that Mark had called him crazy, and Mark said he’d just set off a bomb near his son. Goblin said it had been a minor explosion.

Goblin told Normie that uncle Mark was just fine and they’d been playing a game. They sat back down and Harry took off the mask to calm Liz. Normie said it was just a silly Halloween costume and Liz said it wasn’t funny at all. Harry promised that being the Green Goblin was his inheritance but he wasn’t going to forget his loved ones as Norman had. Mark and Liz looked grim while Normie was gleeful. Spider-Man arrived and after Harry’s initial rage, he ordered his enemy to sit and eat. Harry accused Spidey of trying to destroy the Osborn family and mocked his “failure.” Mark pounced on him, saying he was hurting Liz and Normie. After a short fight, Liz told the Goblin that she wouldn’t let him hurt Normie the way that Norman had hurt him. The Goblin asked his son if he thought his daddy was crazy and Normie said no. He said he loved him. Green Goblin was proud of him and said that Liz wasn’t really an Osborn.

Goblin had Normie go back to Liz and then attacked Spider-Man. The Goblin was eventually webbed up and as Spider-Man tended to Liz and Mark, Normie glared at him with hate. Later, Normie was outside as the Green Goblin was taken away by the police. (Spectacular Spider-Man #189)

”Best of Enemies”

Harry again became the Green Goblin, tried to kill Spider-Man and failed, losing his life in the process. Normie was at Harry's side and in Spider-Man's company when his father died, giving him one more reason to hate the wall crawler. (Spectacular Spider-Man #200)

”Legacy of Evil”

Unfortunately, Harry did even more damage to Normie's young mind posthumously, when a trio of robotic Goblin women kidnapped the boy and tried to expose him to the toxic, strength enhancing Goblin formula. Again, Spider-Man came to the rescue, with the help of the reformed Mark Raxton. (Spider-Man: Legacy of Evil).

”My So Called Superhero”

While Normie could have been killed (unintentionally) by a Green Goblin in his previous adventure, he was saved by one in his next. Liz Osborn became the CEO of Osborn Industries after Harry's death, which made her and Normie the target of a kidnapping and ransom plot by the criminal called Angel Face and her sidekicks: Salt and Pepper. Liz had set up a meeting with the heroic fourth Green Goblin (Phil Urich) and when she didn't arrive at the agreed time, the Goblin flew to her apartment and quickly disabled Salt and Pepper. Angel Face took the opportunity to flee with Normie to the parking garage, where he bit her, forcing her to let him go. She was ready to shoot the kid when the Goblin showed up and finger blasted the gun out of her hand. The Goblin's reward was a punch in the face from the angry brat, who screamed, "You're not my daddy! You're not!" (Green Goblin #8)

”Cycles and Circles”

Peter Parker tried his best to steer Normie away from his dark heritage by being a positive role model (Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #14) but Normie was too aware of his father being the Green Goblin and eagerly awaited the Goblin's return.


After Norman Osborn's self imposed exile in Europe ended, he had a bionic construct (I don't understand it, either) dress up as the Goblin and kidnap Normie. The boy willingly went along with the impostor Goblin, believing it to be his father and Norman offered a ten million dollar reward for the boy's safe return, all part of a scheme to prove that Norman wasn't the original Green Goblin. While Spider-Man battled the fake Goblin, a civilian named Clarence Fielding rescued Norman Jr. from the junk yard when he was being held, despite the boy's protests (Spectacular Spider-Man #255).

”Free Fall”

While visiting the Daily Bugle with his grandfather, Normie was a bystander to an assassination attempt against Norman. Wilson Fisk was making his moves to return as New York's Kingpin of Crime and was systematically removing all of his competition. Norman had tried to oppose Fisk and take his place, which meant he had to be eliminated. Peter and Betty Brant were about to take an elevator to the Bugle's lobby (until they saw Norman and Normie inside) when Nitro, The Living Bomb, attacked Osborn. Peter shoved Betty into the elevator, which collapsed down the elevator shaft. The four of them were trapped, with Betty unconscious and Normie scared. Norman taunted Peter, telling him that the security cameras may still be working. Any attempt to use his spider strength to move the rubble would be seen by the guards. Norman was willing to let Normie die to protect his identity as the Green Goblin and refused to help move the heavy debris. Peter took the chance that the cameras were destroyed and shifted the rubble, saving Betty and Normie. Normie begged Peter to save his grandfather and Peter reluctantly agreed. (Peter Parker: Spider-Man #95)

“Old Acquaintances”

In a way, Normie's next kidnapping was a lucky turn for the boy. After Norman Osborn had been defeated after the Gathering of Five ceremony, the cult of the Scriers faced a sort of civil war over the role of their deposed leader. A rebel Scrier named Matthew DeRoma kidnapped Normie in an attempt to draw Norman out into the open and be killed. A hologram of Harry Osborn was used to gain Normie's trust. After Spidey saved Normie yet again, the Harry hologram spoke to Normie in private, telling him that Spider-Man was his friend, that his grandfather couldn't be trusted and that Spider-Man had nothing to do with Harry's death. For the first time, Normie Osborn trusted Spider-Man and Spidey took the boy home to Liz. (Amazing Spider-Man Annual 2000)

”Darkness Calling”

Norman had decided to make Peter his heir and drugged his toothpaste with a mind control substance. This made him act out as the Green Goblin, despite him not remembering doing so. After Randy Robertson and Glory Grant were attacked during a date, Spider-Man combed the city, looking for the Goblin. He went to check on Liz and Normie, and found him waiting in the dark by himself. He was waiting for Harry to show up. His grandpa always came back, so his dad would too. He just had to be good and wait. He had just seen his grandpa and they decided to wait for him together. After several hours, Normie fell asleep and Spidey left. (Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 2) #25)

”A Death in the Family”

That new found trust could easily be all that saves Norman Jr. from his increasingly unstable grandfather. In a subsequent battle with Spider-Man, Norman taunted Peter, saying "Fact is, the boy is too much like his father. Dirty genes cant be scrubbed out when the stain is that stubborn. Just imagine: The same pitiful traits as Harry, the same worthless soul, the same weakness...No. I cant have him weaseling his way in on all of the loot when I'm gone. I'll dispose of the little ape, as I should have done the day he was born." Filled with rage, Peter growled, "I'll kill you" (Peter Parker: Spider-Man (vol. 2) #46).

”The Lethal Foes of Peter Parker”

Recently, a new threat, unrelated to Norman Osborn, attacked Norman Jr. After Peter Parker revealed his secret ID during Civil War, the Chameleon joined Scarecrow, Will O the Wisp and coerced the Molten Man into holding Normie and Liz hostage to draw out Peter. (Chameleon had approached Molten Man to join while he was attending Normie’s baseball game. He threatened to have Electro kill his nephew and friends if he didn’t comply.) Peter saved Normie and Liz with the help of the Black Cat and returned to Avengers Tower just in time to see that Aunt May saved herself from the Chameleon. (Sensational Spider-Man (vol. 2) #29-#31)

”Mind on Fire”

Normie's long awaited dream of his father returning turned into a nightmare. After Harry turned out to be alive (his death had been a trick, set up by Norman Osborn and Mysterio) Normie learned to hate his father. He came and went out of his life so many times and every time he came back, there was danger. While Liz and Harry argued, Peter took Normie to go play and found that Normie was keeping the severed heads of Spider-Man dolls under his bed. He had no time to ask him about it, as the Molten Man attacked Harry. (Amazing Spider-Man #581)

Naturally, Spider-Man quickly showed up and Normie demanded to know how Spider-Man was always involved in family business. Harry told him that Uncle Peter knows Spider-Man, which left Normie feeling betrayed by Peter. He wanted to know why they all cant just be normal and his parents told him that in a way, they are lucky. Harry seemed to be dead, but he was alive. Uncle Mark seemed to be dying but now was human again, thanks to Harry's cure (created by studying the second Molten Man, Charlie Weiderman). (Amazing Spider-Man #582)

”Necessary Evil”

Normie still held resentment of Spider-Man, which he showed after his mother became the majority shareholder of Horizon Labs. Horizon was then incorporated into OsCorp (which she had re-named "Allan Chemical.") Normie was with his mother and Tiberius Stone when they informed the Horizon employees of the merger. After they left, their limousines were stopped by the Superior Spider-Man, whom threatened Stone. Normie told Spider-Man that he was a bad man and that something should be done about him. Octavius continued to threaten Stone, until he was stopped by Spider-Man 2099. (Superior Spider-Man #17) An argument broke out between the two Spider-Men and 2099 was about to be flattened by a car when Tiberius Stone activated a device that set Otto's spider sense into overdrive. He dropped the car, nearly hitting Normie. The boy was saved at the last second by Spider-Man 2099 and Normie was taken to the E.R. by his mother. (Superior Spider-Man #18)

”Goblin Nation”

Normie was uninjured by the incident with the car and was soon back at the newly christened Alchemax Industries. As his mother was dealing with the fallout of the spider slayers going haywire and attacking Spider-Man and the police, she kept Normie from seeing her with a Goblin mask. (Superior Spider-Man #30) Soon after Otto Octavius had been wiped from Peter's mind, Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 arrived at Alchemax to confront the Goblin King. After defeating Menace, they came across Normie in Liz's office, watching the Goblins wreck havoc across New York. He was giggling to himself, whispering that it was all for him, because he was so special. He was led away by his mother, Tiberius Stone and Spider-Man 2099. After his grandfather was captured and revealed to be the Goblin King, Liz "accidentally" helped Norman escape. As she and Normie left, she whispered to him that it was all for him. (Superior Spider-Man #31)

”Go Down Swinging”

While at the park with Harry, Stanley and their nanny Emma, Normie complained about how Harry spent time with Stanley. Harry offered to stay with them for the night and Normie said he’d been doing that a lot. Were he and his mom back together? Harry took him away to talk. (Amazing Spider-Man #797)

The group was relaxing at Liz’s apartment when she got a call from Flash, saying that Norman was at the Daily Bugle. Normie cheered that his “pop pop” was in town and Liz began to say they should get to Alchemax. She was interrupted by Emma, who pointed a gun at them and demanded to take the children. Liz refused and Emma shot all of them with a tranquilizer gun. She grabbed Normie and Stanley and left. (Amazing Spider-Man #798)

When Liz and the others woke up, they saw the kids were missing and she called Alchemax security. She’d had a chip placed into Normie to track him at all times. They found them all at the Port Authority with Normie crying for his mom. Emma told him to be quiet and they were getting on the next bus when their parents arrived. Emma said she was trying to get the kids away from Norman, who had been standing behind them. He took out all of their armed guards and they realized he’d bonded to the Carnage symbiote. That’s when the Human Torch and Clash attacked the Red Goblin, hoping their heat and noise powers would subdue the symbiote. The Osborns managed to run away during the fight but Red Goblin caught up with them. Shoving the others aside, Norman bonded a part of Carnage to Normie. (Amazing Spider-Man #799)

Norman took his grandson but told Liz to hand over Alchemax by sundown. Norman and Normie split up, with Red Goblin going after MJ and Normie going to May Parker’s apartment. Normie told May that he had gotten lost and he jumped at her while her back was turned. He was stopped at the last moment by Doctor Octopus, who had been watching over May. As Ock and Normie (calling himself Goblin Childe) fought it out, he said that hurting May was the best way to hurt Spider-Man. She then hit him over the head with a chair. (He told her she deserved to die for putting raisins in her cookies.) He was knocked away by J. Jonah Jameson, who remote piloted one of Marla’s spider slayers. Red Goblin arrived just in time to pick up Goblin Childe and Spider-Man showed up as they were leaving.

They were soon at Alchemax and meeting with Liz and Mark. Liz handed over paperwork for him to take control of the company and Norman thanked her by picking up the boardroom table and hitting Mark with it. Liz told Normie that Norman wanted to kill her and that’s when Harry arrived on a glider. He ordered the Humanitron robots to attack and snatched Normie away from Red Goblin. Normie didn’t want Harry to call him “son,” saying he always left him and only loved Stanley. Red Goblin shot Harry with darts, knocking him off the glider. Goblin Childe stopped when he saw Harry was hurt and watched as Red Goblin threw his mother out the window.

Liz was grabbed by Spider-Man, who brought her back to the boardroom. Normie finally saw for himself that his grandfather was the monster and had made him one as well. Norman was about to kill him for his “ingratitude” when Harry remote piloted the glider into Red Goblin. Harry hugged Normie, despite the symbiote lashing out at him. Liz joined them as they comforted Normie, who asked what would happen to him. Spider-Man and Red Goblin’s fight moved outside.

Later, the Osborns were at the Alchemax R&D facility meeting with Dr. Steve, the alien biology expert. Normie was placed into a machine that used sonics to remove remnant symbiotic residue. Harry promised to be a better father to Normie and Stanley no matter what. Normie was glad to hear it, as a portion of Carnage flashed in his eye. (Amazing Spider-Man #800)

”Absolute Carnage”

Venom had defeated Knull, the God of the Symbiotes, but Carnage was trying to resurrect him. Symbiotes leave traces of themselves in their hosts, and Carnage needed to kill and collect those traces of symbiotes from everyone ever bonded to one. This put Normie at risk as well as Dylan Brock, the son of Eddie. Norman was still bonded to a part of Carnage and was ordered by Carnage to find Normie and Dylan. Spidey hid the kids from Carnage and tried to protect them but the combination of symbiote and Goblin formula overwhelmed him. (Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #30)

Spider-Man was saved by the remote assistance of another enemy, called Kindred. (There were actually two Kindreds, Sarah Stacy and Gabriel Stacy. They had a vendetta against both Norman and Peter.) Kindred had placed a supernatural centipede into Norman’s ear and it began to chew on the inside of his head before he could kill Spider-Man. Norman decided that if he wasn’t allowed to kill Spider-Man, he could still kill the kids. Carnage smashed open the door and reached for the crying boys when Spidey pulled himself together. Thinking of everyone that Osborn had ever harmed, Peter hammered at him until Osborn was laying at his feet. (Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 4) #31)

”The Good Son”

Knull was returning to Earth and Eddie left Dylan with the Osborns. Dylan resented being treated like a child and Normie sympathized, saying his parents didn’t trust him either. They had pulled him out of school and made him wear a tracker. His parents kept him locked up when all he had was nightmares. Dylan said that at least Normie didn’t have powers anymore. He still had a voice in his head. Dylan said Harry still cared about Normie, he was trying to keep him safe from his “psycho grandpa.” Normie said his grandpa wasn’t crazy and Harry wasn’t done being the Goblin. He showed Dylan a secret room with Green Goblin weapons, saying Harry loved the Goblin. Dylan had a secret, too. He hadn’t burned all of the Carnage symbiote. He had kept part of it and could control it with his mind.

Later, he tried to show off how well he could control Carnage, which wasn’t great. They still managed to get it to take the tracker off of Normie and they went out. Wearing masks, they went to a park and found a raccoon, bonding it to the symbiote. Since Dylan could control the symbiote, he could control the raccoon. The raccoon followed them into a convenience store and the cashier tried to kill the animal. Dylan threatened him with the symbiote, giving Normie the creeps. They ran off. A few nights later, Harry and Liz went out and left the boys with Mark. Normie woke up to Dylan staring at the wall, talking to someone. He hid under the covers and when he looked again, Dylan was gone. He looked at Dylan’s journal and read about the faceless man that lived in his dreams. Dylan caught him reading the journal and they fought until they fell out the window.

They were rescued by Sleeper, the latest of Venom’s spawn that had been blending in as a cat. It convinced them to get back to Normie’s destroyed room and think of a story before Mark saw it. They agreed but Normie called off their friendship. Mark fell for their excuse of playing baseball. That night, Knull visited Dylan in his dreams, telling him that they’d all kill him unless he killed them first. (Web of Venom: The Good Son #1)

”A World Without Love”

Norman had promised to give Peter a job but it turned out to be nothing but babysitting Normie and Stanley. (Osborn had gained a conscience after being cleansed of his sins by the Sin Eater.) Normie told Peter, "Grandpa says you're so smart it makes you dumb." Later, Peter spoke with Norman about how the kids behaved. They did well despite the glue that got in Peter's hair. Also, there was pudding in his mask. (Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 6) #2)

“Dark Web”

Norman took his grandson out for batting practice and the two enjoyed themselves. However, Norman was distracted by the memories of his past crimes. (Gold Goblin #1)

Normie spent his eleventh birthday in Norman’s building as a demonic invasion happened outside. Liz had wanted to have the party at Alchemax, thinking it safer there. Norman didn’t want his grandson to have a birthday in a panic room. Norman took Normie aside and told him he was proud of him, and his dad would be too. (It turned out that Harry hadn’t come back after all. The man they thought was Harry was a clone, part of a scheme from the real Harry.) Normie asked if his dad had been a good man and Norman said he had been the best. Then Normie asked why Norman had hurt him so much. Norman didn’t have an answer. The party was attacked by the new Jack O’Lantern, who had a grudge against Norman. He changed to the Gold Goblin and the fight went outside. Instead of ending in a bloodbath, Norman and the Jack O’Lantern (who introduced himself as Owen Ward) talked it out on the rooftop. Normie joined them and Owen apologized for ruining his party. Normie shrugged it off. (Gold Goblin #3)

”Cult of Carnage”

After Liz found the Green Goblin equipment hidden in their penthouse, she ordered the Guardsmen to remove it. Normie didn’t want it to go, because it had been his father’s (or rather, his clone’s.) She told him it was too dangerous and he said that’s why they needed it. Harry had left it for them to be protected. She said she would protect them, and he said she was always at Alchemax. He tried to grab the glider from a Guardsman, which accidentally made it release a bomb. It rolled over to Stanley, who thought it was a toy. She managed to get it away from him, then scolded Normie. She empathized with him missing his dad but she was giving away his old things because other people needed them. She wasn’t trying to erase him. Normie understood. (Misery #1)

”Seven Seals”

In a vision, Eddie Brock saw Dylan contact Normie to ask for help finding his father. Dylan brought a hybrid symbiote for him, a combination of Carnage and Bedlam. Normie was initially horrified to see a symbiote again but was reassured when Dylan showed that he took the risk of bonding to Venom. Dylan was putting a team together and swore that being with “Rascal” wouldn’t be like being Goblin Childe. Normie accepted. (Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom #1)

”Red Goblin”

At some point, Dylan gave Normie his own symbiote, which Normie named Rascal. Out one night, Normie and Rascal came across some members of the Goblin Nation harassing a civilian. Normie decided he had to clean up his grandpa’s mess. Unfortunately he and Rascal weren’t bonded so the symbiote didn’t pay much attention to what it was told. When one of the gang members hit them with a shock, Rascal nearly ate the gang. It was a young symbiote and didn’t have self control, like a puppy having a temper tantrum. Normie threatened to tell Liz if he ate a member’s face but Rascal only stopped when it smelled chocolate. They broke into a candy store and passed out. Normie was found by the police and arrested but the store owner didn’t press charges. He was picked up by his grandfather, who had paid off the shop owner. Normie was grounded “until cockroaches rule the Earth” but was still expected to attend the opening of Norman’s new clinic.

Alone in his room, Normie scolded Rascal for going “goblin mode” again. Rascal pouted that Normie hated him and he reassured the bloodthirsty alien that he didn’t hate it but he had a lot on his plate. He had to go to the opening of the Harold Osborn Addition Treatment Center with his mom and forced Rascal to stay in his room. As Norman spoke at the opening ceremony, he was attacked by the Goblin Nation, which was now under the control of the Goblin King (Phil Urich.) Thinking that he could help, Normie moved toward his grandfather but realized that Rascal was thirty blocks away under his bed. As Norman fought his former gang, Normie tried to protect Stanley from one of the members. She threatened Normie and Norman relented, going with the gang. She let Normie go. (Red Goblin #1)

Liz dropped off the kids at school the next day and after getting past the press asking him about his grandfather’s kidnapping, he was beat up by classmates in the bathroom. Another classmate helped him out and gave him his school jacket, as Normie’s had been torn in the fight. Normie had hidden Rascal in his backpack and took the creature to the school roof, saying that he needed it to track Norman. He made it promise to hold it together no matter what happened before they swung away. He found his grandpa and the Goblin King in the sewer and Urich was eager to peel the symbiote off of him. Normie was quickly overpowered and allowed Rascal to act out. He clawed at Urich’s eyes and went for Norman until Goblin King used his sonic laughter. It badly injured Rascal and Normie was helpless. He also dropped the school jacket that his classmate had given him, which had his name on it. Norman punched Urich away and they began to escape when they were attacked by one of Goblin King’s flunkies, who stabbed Normie through the hand. Rascal knocked the thug away and Normie reminded it to stay in control of itself. The rest of the Goblin Nation gang showed up and Normie suggested rethinking the promise to be calm. (Red Goblin #2)

As Red Goblin fought the Goblin Nation, he realized that they’d been enhanced by goblin formula, taken from Norman’s blood. Rascal invaded Normie’s memories, trying to manipulate him into letting it take control. It said that it was what Normie made it to be and he realized that’s why he looked like Norman’s stint as the Red Goblin. Normie agreed to let Rascal control them both during the fight and the gang was soon being sliced up by razors from his skin. Goblin was about to bite off Urich’s head when he was stopped by Norman. Normie took control of Rascal and carried away Norman while Goblin King demanded they come back. He took Norman to a hospital and as Normie left, he told Rascal not to speak to him. Normie came across a homeless woman and her barking dog, who reassured him that there is no such thing as a vicious dog, just an animal that’s seen viciousness. In the sewer, Goblin King studied the school jacket with Timothy Anders name. (Red Goblin #3)
