Harry Osborn was the college roommate of Peter Parker.
He worshipped his domineering father, and tried to live up
to what he thought his father's exceptions were. The
pressure got to him, however, and he began taking drugs. It
was a long, slow road to recovery, replete with backslides.
It was during such a period that Harry witnessed the battle
between his father, the original Green Goblin, and
Spider-Man, that resulted in his father's death. The shock
started to drive Harry towards insanity.
After discovering Spider-Man's costume in Peter Parker's
room, Harry assumed the identity of the Green Goblin and
tried to do in his roommate. Peter defeated Harry. The
arriving authorities refused to believe either that Peter was
Spider- Man, or that Harry himself was the Green Goblin.
They handed Harry over to a psychiatrist, Dr. Barton
Hamilton, who successfully treated Harry's insanity but who
also learned everything Harry knew about the Green
Goblin. Dr. Hamilton eventually went on to become the
third Green Goblin -- but that's another story.
Just like his father, Harry suffered from a sort of selective
amnesia and often didn't remember either his father's other
life or Spider-Man's secret identity. This amnesia began to
erode when the original Hobgoblin offered him proof that
Norman Osborn was his father. Harry tried to use some of
his father's weapons on the original Hobgoblin, with dismal
Harry stayed away from super-powered types for a while.
During the Inferno crisis, he became the Green Goblin
again and battled the second Hobgoblin. He thought about
becoming a super-hero, but was forcefully dissuaded by
Harry began to imagine his father's spirit, goading him to
revenge. He obtained and used a modified version of the
original Green Goblin's strength formula . He taunted Peter
and Peter's wife, Mary Jane, with his knowledge of Peter's
secret identity. He openly jetted about in his Goblin attire,
even publicly confronting J. Jonah Jameson. His
determination to extract vengeance caused him to try and
blow up the Osborn Foundation with himself and
Spider-Man inside. However, the presence of Mary Jane
and his son, Norman, shocked him into a semblance of
sanity. He got everyone out safely before collapsing. He
died shortly thereafter, apparently from an unexpected
side-effect of the Green Goblin formula.
