    Why was Norman in a hospital, and a public one at that? Last I remember, he was in that fight against the Avengers where he took on the powers of everyone and it overwhelmed him. Also, when did Harry change his son's name to Stanley? Wasn't it Normie? Edit: Oh wait, I've just remembered. Stanley's the son he had with Lily.

    Clearly an old school homage. Note Flash with legs and Harry in the image.

    So, Norman Osborn is up and about. In ASM. It's been a long time coming, and it certainly is going to make the next few issues very exciting.

    What's everyone's thoughts on this? Do we have too many villains, bearing in mind that 'Dying Wish' is due to feature the Lizard, Morbius and Doc Ock? Or is Norman's return essential for ASM's 700th issue? What do we think his role will be in all this?

    I am honestly wondering that to, considering he teamed up with terrorist organization and tried to pull a hostile takeover of S.H.I.E.L.D., its really stretched he would be in a public hospital.

    It's also the Hospital where Madame Web is staying, although they don't know who she is

    Since Norman has the Super-Adaptoid power, who is to say that he won't ABSORB Peter's Spiderman abilities and become the Superior Spiderman? Also, it would give him a chance to be with both of Peter's loves (Gwen, and now Mary Jane....)

    Could create incredible animosity with Phil Urich as he has used Norman's tech for two roles (good Green Goblin and new Hobgoblin....)

    Thoughts?

    It would also explain why he would call himself Superior Spider-Man since Norman has always thought he was better than Peter.

    Exactly! That is why I think that Dan Slott may have given away the secret of Superior Spiderman.....

    Norman has always been obsessed with Peter (and spiderman), and even saw him as his heir. Now he can do the following:

    1) Prove to Peter (and the world) that he is better than Peter, and
    2) Infiltrate the Avengers to get revenge on them for beating his Dark Avengers twice...

    It really sets up a lot of fun story-lines, and builds on the history between Norman and Peter....

    It would be really, really difficult to replace Peter with a character you couldn't root for in the slightest.
