Harry Osborn is the son of Norman Osborn, the ruthless owner of Osborn Industries, Inc., a leading chemical manufacturing firm based in New York City. At first, Harry did not know that his father had been driven insane by a chemical accident and led a criminal career as the original Green Goblin.
Harry went to college at New York's Empire State University, where he became the friend and eventual roommate of his fellow student, Peter Parker. Harry even dated Parker's future wife, Mary Jane Watson. Unknown to Harry, Parker was secretly the Green Goblin's nemesis, the costumed crime fighter, Spider-Man. During his college years, Harry began taking addictive drugs in an attempt to escape from the pressures of his life. At the time of his father's death, he was mentally unstable state due to the drugs' influence. He witnessed the final battle between Spider-Man and the Green Goblin and the Goblin's demise. While no one was watching, Harry removed the Goblin's mask and costume so that the police would find his father's body without any evidence that he was the Green Goblin.
Harry held Spider-Man responsible for his father's death and, sometime later, Harry discovered that Parker's identity as Spider-Man. Now insane, Harry became the new Green Goblin and sought revenge against Spider-Man.
