It's pretty popular to say that Norman Osborn/Green Goblin is Spider-Man's arch nemesis and greatest foe, but I for one have always thought Dr. Octopus was. I think now with all that's currently been going on in Amazing and the events leading into Superior, that has become rather obvious, and it's really no contest at this point.
Just think about: I mean after all, people point out that Norman killed Gwen Stacy, but they forget that Doc Ock killed Pete's mentor Captain Stacy first. Doc Ock was also the first villain who Spidey suffered defeat to, and he almost made Spidey give up and quit early on, teaching him a very valuable lesson that he has carried with him ever since. Also, Norman was kept dead for 25 years, so Doc Ock and Spidey have automatically had more great battles than he and Norman/GG had by default.
Agree or disagree?
