It isn’t easy been green, just ask Norman Osborn aka The Green Goblin. No major league villain wants to know you when you’re squishing Spider-Man, but save the world from alien invasion and get placed at the head of the worlds mightiest peacekeeping force, and suddenly you’re sitting at the same table as Doc Doom and Loki, plotting the course of your 'Dark Reign' over a glass of Merlot.
Now just to throw a pumpkin bomb into the works Brian Michael Bendis has appeared on G4TV announcing Norman’s time at the head of the table will end with 2010’s mini-series ‘SEIGE’. The “BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!” packed series, drawn by Olivier Coipel will reunite the Thor-Cap-Iron Man line-up of Avengers, and create a “seismic shift” in the direction of the Marvel Universe.
With the all-star Avengers coming back, could the Green Goblin hold on to enough 'street cred' to feature in a best of the best revamp of the Masters Of Evil? Standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Ultron, disgraced and humiliated by the world's heroes, Norman could exploit his recently acquired connections to show the world just how passionate pure hatred can be.
Look to Marvel to tease more on the fate of Norman Osborn and the universe next week...
