Norman took the siblings to France where he raised them, claiming to be their uncle. They believed Peter Parker to be their real father, and were furious that he abandoned them and killed their mother. They would train for years to come under Norman's influence for the day that they would meet Peter and kill him for his personal crimes, avenging their mother.
After operating as the Grey Goblin and being defeated by Spider-Man, Gabriel resurfaced having shot his half-brother Harry for receiving a better life from their father. Gabriel then stole the American Son armour, previously worn by his half-brother in order to incriminate him.
