    Marvel's other FCBD 2024 flagship title is Spider-Man and the Ultimate Universe. In the Spider-Man potion, writer Zeb Wells and artist Ryan Stegman (who also provides the cover) offering up an early look at the story 'The Return of the Goblin,' which will apparently kick off in Amazing Spider-Man #50. Marvel promises some "surprises up our sleeves on this one."
    I know it's inevitable, but I wanted Norman Osborn to stay a good guy. It's important for all the times Spider-Man saves the bad guy's life that it can lead to good things.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Yeah, the good guy Norman Osborn was definitely a nice change of pace and I have enjoyed it!

    Hopefully, his return to goblin-mode will be lead to a story we haven't seen before.

    On the one hand, I liked the current status quo. On the other hand, I wouldn't hate it if they just decided that right around every "issue 50" they needed to have a story called "Return of the Goblin" and they had to build the story around it. I'm still disappointed that Dan Slott had two opportunities (600 and 800) to follow up on Aunt May dying just before ASM 200 and dying in ASM 400 and didn't even get close to knocking her off again. Traditions are important!

    Hopefully, it's the final arc of this run.

    After Gang War, there are three outstanding plotlines left in this run. Norman is one of them.

    Another major plotline revolves around Ben Reilly.

    And the other major plotline is MJ.

    Gang War ends with #44. That gives them plenty of space to resolve at least one of those two before #50. I imagine, and this is just a guess, that Norman's return will be part of the resolution to the other one (e.g. Norman kills Paul; Norman completely succumbs to his sins trying to revive Ben's memories; Norman and Rek-Rap team up and take over Hell, expelling Ben and accidentally curing him, thus securing Ben's arc as the lamest, least-character driven fall and rise in comics history)

    Goblin arc can easily include all of that. Norman is definitely going to target MJ and she will fight him as Jackpot.
    Not sure about Ben, but I can see him also playing a role.

    Well, the writing was kind of on the wall.

    I've always found "good" Norman forced and not believable, especially other characters' response to it, so I personally won't miss it.

    There's also Ned/Hobgoblin and the Queen Goblin stuff with Kafka.

    Given how Doc Ocks return hadn't lead to anything new and in fact they're bringing back superior, I wouldn't hold my breath. Maybe one of the twists is that it won't be Norman somehow....still not holding my breath. For every time I've complained about Marvel doing something like this, the only time they've surprised me was with Venom. Thought going back to Eddie would lead to same old same old and it totally didn't.

    I wasnít on board with Normanís redemption arc at first, but Iíve come around to think itís literally the only positive thatís come out of the Wells run. It was an interesting take at least, more so than his umpteenth revenge scheme. Now we are going to back to the boring status quo. Peter should have let Chasm kill him.
