Disney Vs Marvel Villains War
Norman Osborn comes in for a day at work when he finds David Xanatos in his office. Xanatos reveals that he has bought Oscorp and that Osborn is out of a job. Osborn leaves the meeting with a calm demeanor, but he ingests some chemicals that transform him into the Goblin. Now intent upon killing Xanatos, the Green Goblin heads off to Xanatos's compound. He is met by three Goliath androids. The Green Goblin is able to destroy one with a pumpkin bomb and another with one of his wrist lasers, but the third punches him straight into a building. The android pummels the Goblin with laser fire, ejecting the supervillain out of a building completely. It is soon revealed that Xanatos was piloting the last android himself.
Osborn emerges from the battle relatively unscathed, though he does lay low for a period of time. The Green Goblin seizes his chance to take more power when Tombstone, one of the dominant gangsters in New York, gets in a feud with the up and coming mobster, Pete. While the two are fighting, the Goblin destroys a key bridge needed for Tombstone's escape from the fight. During Tombstone's delay, the Green Goblin takes control of his criminal empire, becoming the new "Big Man of Crime."

The Green Goblin decides to pull the funding from Madam Medusa's criminal operation in Devil's Bayou. This enrages Medusa, who hires Chang to eliminate the Green Goblin. Chang attacks while the Goblin is playing a game at Big Sky Billiards. Chang transforms into a dragon, but the Green Goblin repulses her with one of his wrist lasers. The Green Goblin dodges most of Chang's attacks, hopping atop his glider. The Green Goblin hurls a pumpkin bomb at his foe, but she neutralizes it with some fire breath. Soon, the entire billiard parlor is set aflame. The Goblin takes a hit from one of Chang's magical fireballs, but he stays in the game, hurling a specialty pumpkin bomb at Chang, one that turns her into stone. The Green Goblin makes his escape, leaving the parlor to burn.
The Green Goblin then hires Doctor Octopus to serve as his chief scientist. The two create the Scorpion to cause havoc throughout the world, though Frollo and Ratcliffe soon put this new villain to a stop. The Green Goblin then oversees the completion of Doctor Octopus's Sinister Six project, hiring Mysterio into their criminal empire.
