Quote1 There was a time when you were like a son to me, Peter. The son I never had. My chance for a legacy. Of course, so much has come between us since then, hasn't it? And our burgeoning familial love turned to hate. How long have we tormented one another? I call you a fool, you call me a madman. I kill someone you love- you lock me away in a place like this. It's a vicious cycle. One I certainly never believed would end. But these are extraordinary and dangerous times, Peter. We must change our habits in the face of them. You and I both know-- he's coming. Quote2
-- Norman Osborn

Synopsis for "The Return of the Green Goblin: Chapter One - Unstoppable"

Peter Parker (Earth-616) and Norman Osborn (Earth-616) from Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 49 001

Spider-Man and Green Goblin fight Sin-Eater's followers

When Norman talked about how he once viewed Peter like the son he never had, Peter held back his rage against the monster who took so much good in his life, so that Norman can take a Goblin Formula and reequip his Green Goblin gear. When fighting Sin-Eater's nigh-immortal followers, Peter's conscience screams that he stop Norman there and now, knowing full well he'll take more from him yet again. Elsewhere, the Order of the Web hold back per Julia's command, explaining to Anya that they're waiting for Sin-Eater to cleanse Norman before intervening. With the group unease over Peter's alliance with Norman in the fight, Gwen voiced a change of opinion asking they don't stop Sin-Eater and help save Norman. As Spider-Man is being overwhelmed, Stanley returned endowed with Juggernaut's immeasurable strength to fight Norman and Peter. The two begin their attack, but find little effort in their newly unstoppable foe.

Synopsis for "The Return of the Green Goblin: Chapter Two - The Debt"

As Spider-Man knows Norman would have a backup plan within a backup plan, Goblin elaborates his underground river escape, further proving Spider-Man's distrust. While not the time to discuss, Goblin deploys hidden rocket launchers from the walls to buy time as they retreat to lower levels. Due to years of animosity, neither have coordination, forcing Spider-Man to collapse the floor and send them falling to their waypoint. Meanwhile, Gwen argues that their intervention is not their choice to make, but Peter's as he is fighting his own demons and he has more than earned the right to make his own choices. She finishes with the group's understanding that something is behind Sin-Eater, and that should they interfere, something worse could happen. Gwen finishes by asking for a vote on what to do. Under the fallen rubble, Norman reminds Peter of when they "met" as Spider-Man and Green Goblin unmasked, how Peter rejected him. Norman clarifies that, in that moment, his Goblin formula had made him lost and shattered, how his twisted mind only wanted Peter to love him like a father. Since then, Norman hated Peter, even the times he was saved by him. Feeling indebted, Norman thus "repaid" Peter by removing the rubble from him and helped him to his hidden base. Peter finds an EMP bomb, strong enough to blackout half the East Coast, but Norman again diverts focus to their escape as Sin-Eater catches up to them.

Synopsis for "The Return of the Green Goblin: Chapter Three - Your Choice"

When Spider-Man remembers how he fought the real Juggernaut, he has Norman set the EMP to cause liquefaction in the concrete beneath. Once Norman activated the altered EMP, Spidey holds Sin-Eater long enough for the ground to liquify and bury them, with Stanley questioning why he'd sacrifice himself for Norman. As Peter sinks, content he saved others and did the right thing, he remembers MJ and chose to survive. However, Norman hovers over him atop his glider narrating that he made plans to make a spectacle of Spider-Man's demise, but takes a win by simply drowning Peter in concrete. Thankfully, the Order arrive to rescue Peter, explaining their presence and vacating on Norman's escape boat. Aiming to exit in the Hudson, Peter plans to hide Norman first before finishing Sin-Eater, but they are distracted by Norman's perverse sniffing around Gwen. Pleased to see Gwen alive, or at least her doppelgänger, Norman's comments about her and the people around Peter make him break. Knowing Norman won't stop killing people he loves and cyclically blaming himself, Peter "made a different choice" and threw Norman out to be prey for Sin-Eater; with Julia commenting that it was now too late for him. Elsewhere, an understanding Kindred doesn't blame Peter for his actions, seeing one wrong to do so much right. In his cemetery, Kindred narrates that Peter still hasn't learned the lesson that his sins never stay buried.

Synopsis for "A Family Affair"

Adrain Toomes gifts his granddaughter Tianna a set of artist pencils, but after he is spooked seeing Spider-Man, she leaves him to confront Spider-Man to keep him away from her grandfather. While not understanding her motivations at first, after her explaining Toomes is her grandfather and getting hit by multiple elephant tranquilizers, Spider-Man mentioned Toomes has killed people. Initially opposed the notion, but after Spider-Man cites Nathan Lubensky and Gibbon, Tiana realizes she may by lying to herself about her grandfather, and leaves an unconscious Spider-Man as she flies away.
