You know what? I’m gonna say it. I’m actually surprised that Ultimate Spider-Man (the cartoon, not the comic) is so hated. Alright, season one is bad, but it did get better, it did! It also gave us an interesting take on Harry Osborn, making him Venom for a while. And I am absolutely convinced that… Read More Is ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’ borrowing its Harry Osborn plot from an unpopular cartoon?
It’s here! Finally! You ready? First of all we meet the villain of our story, Kraven, who’s hanging out in a big jungle. He kills a dude with a bad haircut who I’m not sure we know and then heads to New York for “the hunt.” Oooh! I’m Kraven more of this. Six months later… Read More Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay trailer gives some hints to the plot
The Liz Allan-turns-symbiote storyline has started, and (the late) Harry plays quite a big role! I want to do a “Where did we leave Liz?” summary before I get started but honestly… I have no idea where we did leave Liz because her characterization both post and pre Harry’s second death has been all over… Read More Harry Osborn in “Cult of Carnage: Misery” #1
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (also known as Sony’s Spider-Man 2, Insomniac’s Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 PS5, or just plain The Spider-Man Game) is TANTALIZINGLY close but we know almost nothing about the plot! However I’ve seen a lot of fans speculate that Harry Osborn will, alas, probably not make it to a Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 if there… Read More Is Harry Osborn going to die in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?
This is a VERY special Harry Highlight because it’s a piece of art made by my brother, Michael! I asked him for it, and he drew it for me as a birthday present. I have the only original proudly displayed in my house! This is original 616verse Harry, but he’s borrowed an element from the… Read More Harry Highlights #10
It is 1971 and a strict code mandates what can and cannot be depicted in comics. Think like… What Disney has going on at the moment except ten times worse. No swearing, no nudity, no defying authority, no zombies, no blood, no “sexual abnormalities”, no “sex perversion”, no sex at all in fact, no excessive… Read More Amazing Spider-Man #95-98: How Harry Osborn Changed Comics Forever
Today’s Harry Highlight is this great art by tumblr user hieronic! A scene that did not not happen in the comics but I wish it had. Look at Harry’s defiant eyes here! (As with all embedded Harry Highlights, don’t forget to Like the original post rather than this one!)
Harry Osborn’s widow (well, in every way that matters, the comics never really established if they got remarried) is getting her own superpowered identity this year. Here’s the news from the official Marvel website: Written by Sabir Pirzada with art from Francesco Mortarino, Cult of Carnage: Misery arrives in May alongside the start of the… Read More Liz Allan is Misery
Ah, Normie Osborn. Son of Harry, grandson of Norman, child of Goblins and victim of an inexplicable comic-book aging process. And now he’s got his own comic! Red Goblin by Alex Paknadel and Jan Bazaldua. Let’s see how the ghost of Harry factors in to Normie’s story. The intro answers one of the many many… Read More Red Goblin #1
Man, I haven’t done a re-read post since September! Sorry about that. As it turns out, it’s actually time for a crossover! During February-March 1970 Harry popped up in the pages of Captain America, written by Stan Lee and drawn by Gene Colan. It’s hard to work out exactly where these appearances fit in with… Read More Captain America #137-138 (1971)
