The Goblin was a rabble-rouser in Downtown, Nueva York. He intended to take the place of Spider-Man as the defender of Downtown and its people. Goblin told Kasey Nash and the gangs Downtown that the S-Man was a corporate sellout working for Alchemax, and set out to prove it. Goblin had an alliance with Vulture to defeat Spider-Man.
Sometime later, it was revealed that Gabriel O'Hara was not the Goblin, but had been framed by a shape-changer.

- Goblin 2099's identity became a twisted mess due to Peter David's abrupt departure from the original Spider-Man 2099 series. David only intended Gabriel O'Hara to be a red herring for the Goblin identity, and planned to reveal Father Jennifer D'Angelo was the Goblin. When David left the title two issues before cancellation, a dialogue box was added in issue #44 during editing that deliberately shifted a conversation between Jennifer and Gabe to pin the Goblin identity on him. The fill-in writer for Spider-Man 2099 #45 explicitly pointed the finger at Gabriel. This was later retconned in 2099: Manifest Destiny #1 where the characters established that Gabe was not the Goblin, but had been framed by a shape changer whose true identity remained unknown. When David restarted to write Spider-Man 2099, he decided to use the "alternate reality escamotage" to retcon Goblin's identity as Father Jennifer.
