    So I guess the Carnage Symbiote has supplanted the Goblin personality?

    I love how Norman mentions MJ and Midtown High as part of Peter's "connections" .

    How does this guy not know that Norman is currently a major Supervillain on the run from the law? Oh wait, Marvel civilian .

    No one wants the general public to know that like 99% of all supervillians are walking around at large at all times due to complete incompetence.

    I don't think Marvel civilians would care, they're too stupid to understand danger .

    And I guess this story will tell why Norman decided to track down JJ, which, isn't exactly needed... Is it gonna be more than one issue? Because it definitely shouldn't if it's gonna tell just that lol.

    Oh, and Red Death in the name made me think of that evil-Batman-in-Barry's-body from Dark Nights, made me confused for a moment lol.

    Wait...Norman is adverse to senseless murder? Norman? The guy who killed that Daily Bugle reporter for snooping? The guy who killed Swordsman because he was "mad"? Norman?

    Ugh. Whatever.

    Not really interested in this. The Red Goblin was a good plot device for a big menace but not an interesting concept to explore in and on itself.

    Cletus Kasady is Carnage.

    The stupid thing about this is that they're including this issue in Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 6 to pad it out. So that book will be #29-31 of Amazing, which makes it only four issues, whereas this has no place in it whatsoever. It's frustrating. Why not expand that volume to include more ASM issues?

    I’m giving it mostly a pass since when Norman is sane (as much as he can be) he does want to be seen as a good guy. Good intentions with rather sinister execution. That being said this is also during GDS and Dark Reign was awhile ago at this point. So yeah while I’m more willing for a more balanced take on him rather than him being a senseless killer in a silly outfit, it is awkward to point out here given what he does later during GDS.

    Thing is that, while "Norman" can take a more pragmatic approach about killing, Green Goblin usually doesn't, and he did take the Green Goblin formula soon after bonding with Carnage.

    Then again, maybe he's trying to balance out and still have some "Norman" early on, and by GDS, he just let the Green Goblin side go wild, and that combined with Carnage, yeah, by that point it's just going nuts.

    Since when is that the difference? I can point out plenty of examples before "Dark Reign" and afterwards that have Norman senselessly killing others. Yeah, he's more methodical in some, but he judges Carnage for killing when he's done the exact same. It's stupid.

    Didn't he still have the Goblins personality back then?

    Norman when sane is not a senseless killer who enjoys random killing, he'll just kill anyone at any time if they pose any kind of obstacle to his power fetish. He would prefer it if everyone just bent the knee.

    Marvel trade structure is that if a standard trade is not 5-6 issues, Galactus eats planets. If this issue is good then it will be a nice companion to the AC tie-ins.
