COMICS: A Classic Villain FINALLY Returns In The Pages Of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #4

Arguably THE most popular Spider-Man villain of all-time returned today in the pages of The Superior Spider-Man #4. Who? Find out here! "There's someone who can keep you safe from the Spider!" WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

He's baaaack! Fans enjoyed seeing an unstable Norman Osborn take over the Thunderbolts after the events of Civil War, but when he later became an Avengers level threat as the head of H.A.M.M.E.R., many were disappointed that they never got a proper confrontation between him and Spider-Man in the pages of Siege. Oh, and the less said about him recently Hulking out in Brian Michael Bendis' New Avengers, the better! Well, The Superior Spider-Man writer Dan Slott has finally brought back the Green Goblin in issue #4 (which went on sale today) of the controversial "Marvel NOW!" series. With Marvel's May solicitation promising a fully fledged return for the villain, it seems likely that he will take centre stage in this summer's big Spider-Man event. Unfortunately, it also appears as if it will be Doctor Octopus that he ends up facing off against rather than Peter Parker! What do you guys think? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below.

Awesome to see him back, but hard to get excited when a) Peter Parker is no longer Spider-Man and b) Osborn doesn't remember who is beneath the mask anyway (making almost all of their shared history totally irrelevant).

otto's brain vs. osborn's brain. ooohhhh

I agree the Reformin Norman arc needed to end but now having him face Ock could go either way. Will we see Norman find out that Ock is now Spiderman (seriously, no one knows Pete like Norman)? Will we see Spidey wipe the floor with the Goblin just to show how Superior this new take really is? or will we just see a pale imitation of the Peter/Norman battle that alot of us have been waiting for?

ThAT is one nice looking Goblin drawing

I am so freaking excited!! If anyone can tell who Spider-Man is it's the Green Goblin!
mkilban2 - 2/20/2013, 4:10 PM
looks cool, don't read the books but regardless I hope they do Goblin justice in the new Spiderman movies.

yeah boiiiiiii!

Man you guys are gonna be pissed when you find out it's not really Norman. Turns out it is the Superior Green Goblin. Wolverine is actually in possession of Norman's mind and decided he'd take the oppurtunity to show Spidey what a joke he is. Only it's not really Spidey it's Doc Ock. The fight we always wanted. Tentacles vs Claws only with Webs Vs Pumpkin Bombs...holy shit my head hurts

Last panel of the comic is of a Super villain looking at the reader and proclaiming himself a threat to a superhero. Is that the 2 millionth time this has happened??
Fat Slott needs to stick to eating and masturbating. And stay out of writing.

Really? That's the best you got?

Thanks Hush you made my fracking day with that.
teinen - 2/20/2013, 5:51 PM
I gave lots of my money to Slott and TASM. Biggest waist if money I've spent on comics. Marvel and DC are so tired and desperate its pathetic people feed into this garbage.
BenClark - 2/20/2013, 6:01 PM
@teinen: It's also pathetic that you care so much to go on the internet and rant about it.
thatcoldblackcloud - 2/20/2013, 6:44 PM
What's te big deal?
arashini - 2/20/2013, 7:04 PM
I think....

.... that they need to create some new characters.
Shadowelfz - 2/20/2013, 7:10 PM
If Slott wasn't writing I'd be excited about this. Oh well.

When was Vulture replaced by a Skeksis?
MJPETTY7 - 2/20/2013, 7:52 PM

I don't even like this book, but I'm glad Osborn is back as the Goblin instead of Iron Patriot. Dark Reign and Siege were good, but I missed classic Spidey-villain Norman Osborn. That's what I loved about Ultimate Spider-Man, until #160 it was pretty consistent.

Superior Spider-man has been DAMN good so far. All 4 issues are solid and genuinely interesting. I'm actually excited to read each issue as they come out.
StuckInPanels - 2/20/2013, 8:23 PM
Now this I can get excited for. This idea is pretty smart. Doc Ock going up against the baddest baddie that Spider-man has encountered. To win against him would prove his superiority but I'm sure Osborn has something up his sleeve.
beane2099 - 2/20/2013, 8:52 PM
This book is pretty good actually. That last page was a cool tease of things to come.
0bstreperous - 2/20/2013, 8:53 PM
No I almost bought something but Slott is terrible
FlixMentallo21 - 2/20/2013, 9:13 PM
Osborn IS and should always be the Green Goblin--the heck with the Dark Reign and Thunderbolts stuff! But at the same time, he should've stayed dead.
