Green Goblin Glides Into Marvel Heroes 2016

That maniacal laugh. That glider. The Pumpkin Bombs and Razor Bats. It can only mean the Green Goblin, one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous and enduring foes of all time. Norman Osborn does what he wants, so it should come as no surprise that he’d make his way into Marvel Heroes 2016. But as a playable character?

Strap onto your glider, because that is indeed the case. As you can see in the trailer below, Green Goblin is the 56th playable character, forced to battle on the side of good after the events of AXIS. He’s not your typical hero by any means, but he’ll do in a pinch, and as Gazillion promises, “HE’S SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY!!!”

Voiced by Travis Willingham, the Green Goblin will start unleashing his deadly toys on the forces of evil on Friday, March 4. But he’s available for pre-order now in the Marvel Heroes Store, where $16.99 will get you the Green Goblin Hero Pack with Osborn himself, two costumes (classic and Marvel Knights), his Hero S.T.A.S.H., four Fortune Cards and 2 XP Boosts.

Plus there’s another way you can still pre-order him in Advance Pack 3. Available until Friday, March 4, that pack gets you seven heroes once they join the game — Green Goblin, Elektra, Nick Fury, Beast, Ultron, Angela and Black Bolt. Depending on when you’re reading this, it may already be too late. Sorry about that.

At least you’ll have Green Goblin to console you as only he can. I, uh, wouldn’t get too close to him, no matter how heroic he says he’s feeling. that guy’s dangerous.
