IMO, the first issue of the Osborn miniseries was a bit disappointing, mainly because, well, Norman's not in it a whole lot. The bulk of it's setting up the main focus of the series, with Norman being transferred to a maximum security wing with a number of other high-risk supervillains. 

There's a back-up, though, written none other by our friend Warren Eliis. It's primarily a character study on one of Norman's new cellmates, but it also features, well, Norman being Norman.

Watch out ladies, Norman's back in town.

That hair looks terrible on Tommy Lee Jones.

Listen up, ladies and gentlemen. Spider-Man has been on the run for over six hundred issues. Average web swinging speed is six miles per hour barring injury. What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every Newspaper office, fabric shop, pet store, pancake house, hen house, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive's name is Peter Parker, let's get him.

Six mph seems way too low to me. (And yes, I know you were quoting, but the quote is 4 mph, so...)

It's been out of style longer than most of the people writing comics have even been alive. Makes sense on Norman, but why is hip young Harry wearing it?

I didn't think it was a style, I thought his hair just went like that.

Maybe they're going for the 'inherited madness' trope that has been used forever, connected to the Mad Hair Is Indicative Of Personality thing (think Harry Potter) that Harry will be doomed to be just like him and his 'mad hair'.

The Osborns do have naturally wavy hair, but that particular Brycreem'd hairstyle is kinda 50s. The film versions of them have the same texture, but a more realistic version.
