Immortality: Green Goblin claims that as a side-effect to the Oz Formula, every time he dies, he comes back. This explains how he survived gunshots, explosions, and other lethal attacks.
Evolution: Green Goblin's body kept evolving after he became Green Goblin, he grew more powerful, every time he evolved. It is unknown whether his evolving ability has any limits.
Genius Intelligence: Aside from his physical advantages, the serum also greatly enhanced Green Goblin's already-highly above-average intellect, making him a true genius, capable of making progress in advanced areas of genetics, robotics, engineering, and applied chemistry that most professional scientists can scarcely comprehend.
Fire Absorption: Green Goblin can absorb fire around him to give himself a temporary power boost, as demonstrated when he absorbed Human Torch's flames. Doing this gives him a purplish glow.
Flight: Green Goblin can use his flames to propel himself into the air, he can use this to fly.

The Norman Osborn of Earth-1610 was a scientific genius who founded his own company, Oscorp, over thirty years ago. It developed new technologies and innovative materials for the manufacturing, construction, automotive and chemical-processing industries, among others. Osborn also liked to keep his company at the forefront of new sciences, such as bioengineering; when Colonel Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. made it quietly known they wanted to tender contracts to the private sector to develop new “Super Soldier Serums”, Oscorp took on competitors such as Hammer Industries to win the corporate bidding war; however, it rapidly became clear that Norman had misled S.H.I.E.L.D. as to how ready his company was to produce results. They had rushed the research process to win the bid, their formula was messy, and their presentation had been largely “smoke and mirrors”. After two and a half years without results, Fury severed ties between S.H.I.E.L.D. and Oscorp. Losing the contract left Oscorp shaky; to bolster their reputation and share price, Norman publicly declared that he had discovered a miracle compound, Oz, with undisclosed, “closely guarded” properties. With the breathing space this provided, Norman tried to rush the development of the compound he had told everyone he already had.
Working with scientists such as Otto Octavius, Norman began testing Oz on animals. Disaster seemed to strike when a spider exposed to the compound escaped and bit visiting student Peter Parker, a friend of Norman’s son Harry. Fearing exposure of his illegal research should Peter die from the effects of the bite, Osborn had his hired gun Shaw observe the boy, and was prepared to have him murdered; but instead of becoming ill, Peter developed arachnid-like super-powers. Believing he had stumbled upon exactly what he needed to save his company, Norman decided to test direct application of the Oz Compound on a human guinea pig, himself. Doctor Octavius supervised this process, but something went horribly wrong; an explosion destroyed the lab, killing most of those present. Octavius and bystander Harry both survived, though both were changed as a result; but the most obvious and immediate effect was on Norman, who was transformed into a gargoyle-like strongman. The monstrous, mentally muddled Norman wandered the streets in a haze before destroying his own mansion home in a fireball that killed his wife; Harry barely escaped.
