6. Norman Osborn

Norman Osborn doesn’t know how to stand up to his evil persona. Instead, he hides within himself, cowers or runs away, fearful of what the Green Goblin will do when he takes control. Too bad he can’t escape him.

The Goblin is part of him. This didn’t change much in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Norman still couldn’t contain the darkness inside him. Even worse, the darkness in him masked itself as “weak” Norman Osborn.

Grade: B

5. Green Goblin

If this writer had to give the Most Valuable Player trophy to one character, it would be the Green Goblin. Willem Dafoe was absolutely flawless in reprising the role. His facial expressions continued to be top notch, showing us that we never needed the goblin mask in the first Spider-Man movie. Dafoe’s eyes bulged out, his speech pattern changed with the character, and his laugh could creep out a demon from Hades.

The Green Goblin played Peter like a fool. By the time Peter figured out Norman wasn’t the one he was working with, it was too late: The Goblin’s plan was in action. The beating that happened in Happy’s condo was one of the best scenes of the film. Then, having him kill Aunt May just highlighted the evil that is the Green Goblin. He was absolutely perfect.

Grade: A+++
