This split occurred when the founder tested a substance on himself in his lab, providing him with superpowers and another darker personality within himself. This Green Goblin, hellbent on destruction, eventually focuses his dark obsessions on Spider-Man.

The story becomes even more complex when readers and viewers learn that Peter Parker, who many know as the man behind the Spider's mask, is good friends with Norman's son, Harry Osborne.
