Gerry Con­way also over­saw Harry Os­born as­sum­ing the man­tle of the Green Goblin from his father. “Nor­man had ob­vi­ously screwed up Harry’s life to a huge de­gree by be­ing the Green Goblin, and Stan had pre­vi­ously done this sto­ry­line about his drug ad­dic­tion,” says Con­way. “It was never re­ally clear what it was, but my take was that Harry had taken some unadul­ter­ated LSD and, as a re­sult, had a propen­sity for bad flash­backs. I based that on my own ex­pe­ri­ences, as I had done LSD at a science fic­tion con with some very poor judge­ment in the early ’70s, and it to­tally freaked me out. Months af­ter­wards, I was hav­ing these flashes of dis­as­so­ci­a­tion, so I thought, ‘I can use that to ra­tio­nalise Harry’s trans­for­ma­tion into Green Goblin.’”
