    I think it's a wavy kind of hairstyle, common in the 40s and before but fell by later. Norman Osborn was modeled on the actor Joseph Cotten (star of many Orson Welles movies and he appeared in Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt where he played a serial killer) and Cotten had that hairstyle in a number of movies.

    I seem to recall speculation it was originally meant to be a way of depicting wavy brylcreemed hair, however as time went people just assumed that was literally their hairstyle, which has been depicted as pseudo-cornrows ever since.

    Edit: looks like Jack beat me to the punch.

    Well, I admittedly can be a bit pedantic as a comic book fan .

    Are Spencer and Ottley going to show us the moment when Gwen tells MJ that she slept with Norman? Now that's the real question!

    The first tie in to Absolute Carnage was pretty cool, so I trust that this issue is going to be great too

    Could you imagine the confusion of someone who came to Spider-man after OMD/BND reading that line and having no idea what it was about?

    I guess the only difference from their modern depictions is MJ's hair isn't as long (at least when Ottley draws her adult self) and Peter looks a little less like Ultimate Peter then he does in that flashback.
    Yeah I dont mind when they changed the syles and what not in flashbacks. It makes it feel more realistic. Over them wearing their 60s outfits in 201X.
