cyberghostface: (Spider-Man)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

Norman is trying to find a way to restore his Goblin-induced insanity and make himself 'whole' again but Dr. Octopus's cure is preventing the Goblin serum from affecting him. His efforts eventually lead him to the Temple With No Name. He apparently proves himself worthy after touching the Emerald Oracle of Ikkon and his trials conclude with defeating his personal demon -- namely, Spider-Man.

He is shunned by the order and forbidden to return.

About time ancient mystical orders started implementing anti-supervillain entry tests.

Yeah, this is at least the second such order Norman has tried to hijack

BATMAN #431 covered some of that. The issue was the first appearance of Kirigi, Bruce Wayne's instructor in the ways of the ninja.

Only Norman Osborn could consider "insanity" a superpower.

It actually is in most superhero universes.

I get so -tired- of them revamping these characters and bringing them back. Spider-Man used to be the place where you could always find a new villain popping up. The eternal rogues gallery bores the hell out of me. Batman's villains never changing, never going away, always returning to kill and kill again. It stretches credibility past the breaking point for me.

Norman Osborn in particular: You think SHIELD wouldn't have "solved" the Osborn problem long since after the Siege and Dark Avengers debacles? Come on now.

There's also the matter that a lot of writers don't look back into the timeframes between super-recent and the classics.

Well that's not fair! There was... Parkour Girl? I want to say Speedball, but that can't be right. She did Parkour Crimes and shouted about having the Parkour luck and then everybody thought that the Parker Luck was a rip-off of that.

And... some sort of living paper doll who was stalking MJ's movie star boyfriend, I think?

You're thinking of Screwball and she was fun. Unfortunately, she's not fun anymore, the recent Elektra book turned Screwball into a killer which goes against her earlier portrayals.

Hell before that Osborn was shouting threats at Franklin and Valeria Richards. How he's not buried in a cornfield is a mystery to me.
