Norman Osborn returns as the Goblin this fall

Marvel goes back to the classics once more, returning Norman Osborn’s Green Goblin mantle once again for Amazing Spider-Man #850.

The real Goblin is back

How many times has Norman Osborn made a ‘return’ in the Marvel Universe? I’ve honestly lost count, but I know it’s happened a lot. The first time of course, was the famed Amazing Spider-man #122. That was the issue that the first of the Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man films played off of, seeing Gobby impaled by his own glider.

Of course, he didn’t stay dead. And if you thought his run as the Red Goblin, where he fused temporarily with the Carnage symbiote, was his last gasp… well you were wrong.

And as of this September, he’s also back in Green.

Spider-Man will have his hands full with the Sin-Eater’s reign of terror in the upcoming “Sins Rising” epic – but things will be getting much, much worse. As revealed on Comicbook.com, Spider-Man’s greatest foe, Norman Osborn, returns as the Green Goblin in the over-sized AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #850! Writer Nick Spencer and artists Ryan Ottley, Humberto Ramos, and Mark Bagley will be joined by a veritable Hall of Fame of Spider-Creators to chronicle this climactic chapter in the wall crawler’s years-long conflict with the Goblin-masked madman. And as if that wasn’t enough, the issue will also boast a collection of prestige short stories by Tradd Moore, Kurt Busiek, Chris Bachalo, Aaron Kuder, and Saladin Ahmed!

“This is maybe the most action-packed and harrowing issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ever!” teases Executive Editor Nick Lowe. “There are so many twists and turns and Spidey has never had his back up against a wall like this before.”

Spidey has faced his share of hardships, but even the worst things that have happened to him are just a prelude to what transpires here. This colossal showdown will come crashing into comic shops this September, and is not to be missed!
