Early Years

Norman Osborn was married to Emily until she gave birth to their son, Harry, which resulted in her passing away. Since then, Norman has had a disdain for Harry and would only accept him if he can win his approval by showing Harry can keep up the family legacy.

Harry's Suspension

When Harry was framed for a crime he didn't commit, he was suspended from Horizon High. Because of this, Norman created his own school, Osborn Academy for Geniuses, where Harry can attend and not shamed the family name.

Osborn Academy for Geniuses

Norman began holding interviews to see who should attend Osborn Academy. Norman ended up pushing two friends into fighting each other which nearly put Oscorp Towers in danger. Thankfully, Spider-Man managed to stop the fighting.

Harry Is Cleared Of Charges

After he was cleared of the crime and it turned out to be Spencer Smythe out of revenge, Harry was allowed to return to Horizon High. Before going to a party at Horizon to welcome him back, Norman tries to convince his son to continue attending Osborn Academy. Harry agrees to do so.

Secrets

Norman got into contact with Raymond Warren who wanted to show Norman his mutagen. At first, Norman was not interested, but later, after Raymond was discovered to be the Jackal and was arrested, Norman changes his mind.

Harry Osborn

Harry is Norman's son and only child. Even though he shows some disdain for Harry over the death of Emily, Norman often tries to push his son to succeed. 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. 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.

Max Modell

Norman sometimes sees Max as a rival while Max tries to make peace with him. Not much else is known at this time.
