Harry Osborn, also known as the Green Goblin, is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Electro) of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

In 2014, the 20-year-old Harry returned home, just before his father passed away. Harry was now Oscorp's CEO and was soon reunited with his childhood friend. He also became convinced that the blood of Spider-Man (whom he had figured out, had gotten his powers from one of the now destroyed spiders) would be able to cure him. Knowing, that Peter had taken photos of him, Harry asked him to get in touch with Spider-Man. Later, Spider-Man appeared in Harry's home, but refused to give him his blood, regardless of what Harry offered him. Harry became increasingly desperate, when his assistant informed him that the company had drained venom from the spiders, before destroying them. He tried to find out where it was stored, but came across information about Electro and was quickly locked out of the system. To save himself, Menken framed Harry and had him fired. Enraged, Harry sought out Electro at Ravencroft and freed him, hiring him as his new henchman.

With Electro's assistance, Harry headed back to Oscorp and took Menken hostage while sending Electro off to take out the city's power. Menken took Harry down into a secret area and was forced to inject Harry with the spider venom. The venom had a violent effect on Harry. In pain, he crawled over to an Oscorp prototype exo-skeleton and glider and put it on. Harry flew to the power plant, arriving shortly after Electro's death. He realized that Spider-Man was Peter Parker and grabbed Gwen, trying to throw her to her death. Harry began to fight Spider-Man, inside of the nearby clock tower, but was ultimately defeated and locked away at Ravencroft.

Months later, Harry was visited by the Gentleman, who informed Harry, that he had found several suitable candidates. Harry asked him to keep it small and sent him down to the secret area, to collect weapons and equipment for the chosen candidates.
