Green Goblin by TerminAitor Green Goblin by TerminAitor
THE Green Goblin. No other way to start a special Goblins' redesign series than with the original green spiderf***er himself. What I find curious is that a villain with a name that implies magic or mithology is actually one of the most well equiped techno-freaks that fly over NY. The goblin paraphernalia is wicked cool and together with his personality makes a great foe. What bothers me is that annoying way they have t give this kind of characters an epic final and then screw it by bringing them back to life, usually in a very dumb way. The legacy of the Green Goblin should have passed onto somebody else, and arry and Norman should be very well death. Or never have "died" in the first place.

What I pretended here is to make an outfit consisting in an armor or suit ith baggy clothes on it and halloween mask, the classic way. For Norman, being the first Goblin is not as importat to be fully practical than to be theatrical, to carry his madness to a extreme point. The bat-glider looks somewhat simple, as it whould be the first model. Hope you like it!

Again, the design from :iconcheeks-74: was great, frightening, (you owe me some publicity man! XD) and his appearance in the Spectacular Spider-man remembered that first Goblin that was a mobster, a clever and calculating crime lord. In the 90's cartoon, it was great to see a really evil GG too. What I don't like is the most recent designs, that depict him with some kind of medieval armor. Too heavy...

Very cool design. I hope they make GG look a bit like this in a future Spidey film.

Great design, man . The Green Goblin is my favourite villain , and you depicted him very well, with that crazy face (seriously, how does Osborn manage to grin like this, sometimes I wonder...)
I like the scarf you've added, it makes him a lot more theatrical . It's not a cape, of course, but it makes its effect .

I redesigned the Goblin a lot of time myself, but I never found something really satisfying, must because I can't fully choose beetween a fantasy-goblin, who would have built his weapons, or more going in an halloween-themed character, more scary and less technological .
About the medieval armor, I got to say, I've find it pretty cool . The fact it made him heavier made more ...dignified, and tougher at the same time . And still, Mike Deaodato made him perfect by using the armor, but making him less heavy, just look it up : [link]

As you said about ressurecting him and Harry, I fell mixed about this . It was great to see Norman again, but lately they used him very badly ( Dark Reign, yurk!) .
And since Harry doesn't to be the Goblin, it's like there is no Green Goblin anymore in the Spider-Universe . And my God, I miss him . :(

Wicked cool design. You really know how to bring technology and stylization together, the perfect mixture of both. :+fav:

Despite all the awesomeness, I think there's one thing that could work better with this design: the pouches. Although they look great, it doesn't make much sense for a villain that would spend so much money on his hi-tech suite to use plain hand sewed pouches to store his weapons. Dealing with those zippers in flight must be hard! I'm sure the Halloween look could be well implemented in a more practical, tech-y "utility belt".

You are absolutely right! Osborn would have all automatized, being the mask the only thing that would be somehow theatrical. My bad XD
