There are many super heroes I could have chosen to do this report on, but I chose not to. Instead, I chose a super villain we all know; his name is the Green Goblin. The meaning of a super hero is a figure endowed with powers usually used for fighting crime. So a super villain would be a figure endowed with powers used for causing crimes. The crime causing Green Goblin was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditto in July of 1964. He filled the position of Spiderman's most deadly villain.

He first appeared in Spiderman#14 the comic series. Before becoming the Green Goblin he was known as Norman Osborn the second, or as Spiderman's best friend's dad. He became the Green Goblin because one of his experiments at Osborn Industrial (he was the owner) went terribly wrong. The messed up experiment caused him to have the following powers / gadgets : super strength, pumpkin bombs and other sorts of bombs. He did not use these new found powers as Spiderman did; the Green Goblin used them for chaos. To be specific he used his powers to fight Spiderman and his other enemies.

As the years went by the Green Goblin changed a lot. He started out in a comic book, which was later turned into a television show. In the year 2002 he was featured in the movie Spiderman: the Movie. Another sort of change that occurred in his life time was his costume and his powers. He started as a little goblin with a hat (as seen in the picture on the left) to one with a full body suit (as seen in the picture on the right.

) In addition to his powers of super strength and pumpkin bombs, other gadgets were introduced, such as electric bombs and a h overboard. In conclusion, the Green Goblin has made it a long way from the comic book series to big time movies. Though a villain, the Green Goblin was loved by many including me. The Green Goblin was Spiderman's most loved villain.
