The sky had turned dark sooner than normal. Something tragic was waiting to happen any moment. Inside an abandoned warehouse in New Jersey, a dark figure moved slowly through the halls. It was amazing that he can see in this dark and misty place. As he walked downstairs to the basement, the candle light stroked his face, which revealed the man was Norman Osborn. He looked imposing as ever with his superhuman physique and spike-like disheveled red hair.
"You thought it was over didn't you, Spider-Man? You thought I was dead." Norman Osborn chuckled. "Well, you and the whole New York were wrong. Now, it is my time for revenge. I will kill you if it's the last thing I do. Tonight, Spider-Man dies!"
A devilish grin danced on his face as he gazed at the Goblin costume hung on the wall. Norman Osborn put on the green artificial bulletproof exoskeleton, and stood on a small flying platform called "the goblin glider". He glided out of the broken windows and soared up to the sky like a rocket. His destination was New York City!
In midtown Manhattan, a weary Spider-Man apprehended all the members of the Sinister Six (Doctor Octopus, Mysterio, Electro, Sandman, Chameleon, and Rhino). He tied them all up together with his sturdy spider webs against the brick wall. Then the police arrived on the scene. Spider-Man leaped in the air and swung away. Onlookers cheered as they watched their favorite superhero swing out of sight. Some of them texted and tweeted their friends on Twitter that they just saw Spider-Man
"It's over!" Spider-Man said excitedly. "I finally defeated all my enemies! Now, I can go home to my beautiful wife. My body can use the rest. I have kicked ass for four straight days without taking any breaks."
In the sky, darting in and out of the clouds, the Green Goblin was moving at an incredible speed. He cackled at the sight of the beautiful skyline of New York City. The thrill of flying back to the city where he allegedly died in aroused the Green Goblin. He can feel Spider-Man and cannot wait for this encounter.
Walking back and forth in a Manhattan penthouse anxiously was Shadiyah. Her nerves bothered her because she had not seen her husband in four days. She wore in a white-platinum sweat suit and tennis shoes. It was hard for her to eat and sit down because she had her husband on her mind.
"Where is he? I hope he is okay. Being married to New York's greatest superhero isn't all it's cracked up to be." Shadiyah said to herself softly. "Sometimes it's so hard for me to keep on my happy face when Shomari is out playing Spider-Man. Maybe some green tea will help relax me."
Shadiyah walked inside the kitchen and see Spider-Man hanging upside down with his mask off. The sight of him shocked her.
"Daddy's home, Goddess!" Spider-Man announced.
"Oh my God, Shomari," Shadiyah said excitedly. "Thank God, you're home. I was so worried about you. Now, come down here so I can hug you!"
"Not so tight, baby." Shomari said, after Shadiyah hugged him tightly. "My body has taken a beaten."
Shomari removed the upper part of his spider costume. Wounds covered his muscular body.
"Baby, you need to go and treat that." Shadiyah suggested. "Look at you!"
"I know," Shomari agreed. "I'm about to jump in the shower and put something on my wounds. I need you to sew this costume when you get the chance."
The Green Goblin was in the heart of Manhattan hovering over a street full of people. It was time for him to bring Spider-Man out. He soared in the air and dropped goblin bombs on the people below. Screams and smoke filled the night. The street crowds looked high into the air and run. They were in shock and disbelief at what were happening before them. The Green Goblin's hideous shriek echoed over the street as he tossed another bomb. It exploded, knocking down a dark-colored statue and crashing down to the pavement.
"Come out, Spider-Man!" The Green Goblin shouted. "Save the city from the wrath of the Green Goblin!"
Back at the Manhattan penthouse, Shomari and Shadiyah were relaxing on the couch. This was the most rest Shomari had gotten in the last four days, and it felt great. He was not in the mood to do anything, but enjoy the company of his wife.
"I want us to retire in Hawaii, and sit on the beach enjoying the nice weather." Shomari said. "New York isn't big enough for us anymore."
Shadiyah was channel surfing and saw a news broadcast about the Green Goblin's tirade in Manhattan. She could not believe what she was seeing. The images on the screen also shocked Shomari.
Shadiyah stared at Shomari and said, "Oh, my God, I cannot believe Green Goblin is doing this!
"Green Goblin is taunting me," Shomari continued. "He knows one way to bring me out is to harm the innocent."
Shomari gets up and stood stationery for a few seconds.
"Shomari, what are you doing?"
"I've got to go babe. I have to protect the city."
"You're not in the condition to go anywhere. You can hardly stand!"
"I know, but I have to go. Only I can stop the Green Goblin and put him away. I do not want hundreds of New Yorkers' death on my conscience. I've got to go!"
"Are you sure your body can take another beaten?" Shadiyah continued. "You barely survived your fight with the Sinister Six."
"Yes, but we both know crime never stops."
"What about the Avengers and the Fantastic Four? They're also crime fighters based in New York." Shadiyah retorted.
"The Green Goblin is my nemesis and only I can stop him."
"You cannot stop every crime that happens, Shomari. It is impossible for you to eradicate crime all by yourself."
"True, but I have to do what I can regardless how wounded I am. I cannot stand by and let innocent people suffer."
Shadiyah stood up, stared at him, and put her hands on her hips.
"When we got married I knew what I was getting myself into. I have to be honest; I have trouble coping with your Spider-Man career. I hide it because deep down I know I cannot help you. The promise you made to Peter Parker was a vow of responsibility so do what you have to."
Shomari sauntered up to Shadiyah and kissed her. "Thanks, boo. I love you."
Then Shomari hurried upstairs and rushed to the closet. After selecting the black and white costume, he leaped out the window like a veteran Hollywood stuntman and fired a line of webbing at a nearby building. It was time for action!
Spider-Man had to battle the Green Goblin and New York was the perfect place for this epic encounter. He swung from one building to the next at an incredible speed. He looked like a highly skilled ninja flipping in the air and his black costume blended nicely in the dark sky. It was a sight for residents in high rises to see their hero swinging into action. Spider-Man's adrenaline was at maximum high. The excitement of facing one more super-villain had him ready for the battle.
Finally, he spotted his target hovering in the air on his glider. The Green Goblin looked imposing as he grinned devilishly. Spider-Man's face twisted in a furious grimace.
"You finally decided to show up, spider!" The Green Goblin shouted.
"I am the eyes of New York!" Spider-Man continued. "Wherever danger is, I'm there! Now, I'm going to take you down!"
"Well, come and get some!" The Green Goblin replied.
Green Goblin hurled two goblin bombs at Spider-Man like darts. Spider-Man's spider-sense warned him, and he dodged them. While still spinning in midair, Spider-Man shot a web in Green Goblin's face. Green Goblin bellowed as he clawed at the webbing that covered his face. Then Spider-Man kicked Green Goblin in the chest, which almost knocked him off his glider. New Yorkers standing by applauded. It was as if they were at a live show in Radio City.
"Go get him, Spider-Man!" A blond-haired woman clad in a designer coat shouted.
Spider-Man wanted to end this charade quickly, so he moved forward with his fists cocked. Green Goblin tossed Spider-Man, sending him flying across the street. Spider-Man smashed through the glass window of La Familia pizzeria. Shards sprayed in all directions, and customers jumped up shouting in surprise. Some thought it was a stunt gone badly. Shrieking across the street as he slowly glides on the glider was Green Goblin.
"Are you okay, Spider-Man?" Green Goblin asked jokingly.
He glided easily through the massive hole in the glass window holding a goblin bomb in his right hand. Scared customers rushed to the back of the restaurant to move away from the commotion. Green Goblin was about to drop his bomb on Spider-Man, but bullets from a police officer's gun bounced off his armor, which made him accidently drop the bomb on top of a table. In a split second, Spider-Man jumped up to the ceiling, stuck there, and hanged upside down.
The bomb exploded, splitting the table in half. Green Goblin glided away shrieking like a lunatic. Once the gray smoke cleared, Spider-Man swung out of La Familia pizzeria.
"Go get him, Spider-Man!" A boy with a shaved head said.
"Wow, I cannot believe Spider-Man and the Green Goblin were here."
"They smashed my window!" The manager of La Familia shouted. "Who the hell is gonna pay for that?"
Police cruisers pulled up to the pizza restaurant. Then reporters from various news channels showed up to the scene. Spider-Man did not have time answering any questions, so he left, web swinging down the block.
