Early Years Edit

Text that are bold are canon-in-training and may or may not be part of the show.

Harry is the charismatic son of Oscorp Industries CEO, Norman Osborn and his wife, Emily. Emily died giving birth to Harry. Because of this, Norman disdains his son unless he can prove to him that he, Harry, is worthy to keep up the Osborn Legacy. Since then, Harry has done everything to win his father's approval.

When Harry started attending Midtown High, he met and befriended Peter Parker. The two remained friends even after Harry started attending Horizon High.

Field Trip to Oscorp Edit

Harry was present when students from Midtown High, including his friend, Peter. What Harry and the others didn't know was that an experimental radioactive spider bit Peter, giving Peter spider-like abilities. Worried for his friend, Harry goes after Peter in the bathroom. But he couldn't find him. What he didn't know was that Pete was sticking to the bathroom ceiling.

Suspension Edit

Harry, with his classmates, Anya Corazon and Miles Morales, along with Max Modell, the director and founder of Horizon High, came to Midtown High for a special lecture. Harry believed that Peter should enroll at Horizon High and tried to convince him to do so. During the lecture, one of the machines the Horizon High students brought malfunctioned. What no one knew was that the machine was sabotaged by Spencer Smythe in revenge against Max Modell. Spencer Smythe also took a picture that made it look like the machine was sabotaged by Harry. Because of this, Harry is suspended until an investigation could be done. Harry noticed that Spider-Man happened to appear and stopped machine and blamed Spider-Man for what happened to him.

Osborn Academy for Geniuses Edit

In response to Harry being suspended, his father, Norman, created a school for Harry to attend. He warned his son not to disappoint him this time. When the investigation proved Harry's innocent of the crime, he was allowed to return to Horizon High. However, Norman encourages Harry to continue attending Osborn Academy. He agrees to do so.

Relationships Edit

Peter Parker/Spider-Man Edit

Harry and Peter have been friends since they attended Midtown High together. Their friendship remained strong even after Harry started going to Horizon High. Harry, v that Peter can do great things, convinced him to enroll in the same school. The part of the day they look forward to is when they meet at their favorite cafe.

Harry has a hatred of Spider-Man as he believes that Spider-Man is the one who got him suspended from Horizon High. Since then, he believes Spider-Man is the source of all his problems. Harry proved instrumental in curing the entire population from the Jackal's Spider virus but discovers Peter's identity as Spider-Man in the process which fractures their friendship as he still blames Spider-Man for his various misfortunes.

In the two-part season one finale, he takes the guise of the Hobgoblin identity (similar to his Ultimate Marvel counterpart) after being convinced by his father that Spider-Man needs to be stopped when Spider-Man starts working with the Sinister Six. After finding out Spider-Man was under mind control, he rescues Peter and becomes his crime-fighting partner after the two make amends. However, Hobgoblin starts showing up randomly without Harry realizing it, theorizing it's a combination of his subconscious hate of Spider-Man that he hasn't fully pushed out and experiments he was testing on himself to cure his father. He and Spider-Man eventually discover that the second Hobgoblin is Norman, who attempted to kill Spider-Man so Harry could become a popular hero and carry on the Osborn name. After Harry rescues Spider-Man, Norman seemingly perishes from an explosion caused by a green chemical. Harry inherits his father's position as the new CEO of Oscorp.

Norman Osborn Edit

Norman "convincing" Harry to stay in Osborn Academy.

Harry loves his father and tries to win his approval to show he is worthy of the Osborn name. Even though he shows some disdain for Harry over the death of Emily, Norman often tries to push his son to succeed and to always obey him. When Harry was suspended, Norman created the Osborn Academy for Geniuses so Harry can attend it. Even after Harry was allowed to return to Horizon High, he convinced his son to continue attending Osborn Academy. He claims he would move mountains for Harry. In "Hobgoblin", Norman entrusts the Hobgoblin equipment to Harry Osborn in trust that he would destroy Spider-Man, but when Harry refused, Norman donned the Hobgoblin Armour, and tried to destroy Spider-Man himself, and again supposedly died in the process. When Harry resumed control of Oscorp (Not Osborn Academy, because it was destroyed in Spider-Island), Norman was revealed to be alive (in some sort), and reveals a new, deadly project to his son.

Spencer and his son, Alistaire, have a dislike for Harry. Mostly likely because of Norman.

Trivia Edit

  • Harry has black hair in this series, while other versions have either red, brown, or blonde hair.
  • In various media, Harry becomes the second Green Goblin after his father.
  • This is the second incarnation of Harry Osborn to become the Hobgoblin, the first was in the Ultimate Marvel comics.
  • In this series, the Hobgoblin is the first Goblin themed character to appear, while in the comics and various other media, the Green Goblin appears first.
    • This is most likely a nod to the 1994 Spider-Man animated series, which had the Hobgoblin appear before the Green Goblin.
