I know the mutants of this world will rise up and kill us. I know that the Hulk will one day decide to destroy everything he sees. I know the Punisher will one day kill the wrong person and set off a chain of events that will lead to nuclear holocaust. I know these heroes will dive head first into something they do not understand and end up doing such insane damage to the world that humans can no longer live on it. ... I know this is true.

Quote1 Secret Subway line, Underground Kingdom... so theatrical. And pointless. What was I thinking? The strength and healing powers of the Goblin Serum are gone from my system... but for the first time in ages, so too is the madness. I won. I got exactly what I wanted. Alchemax has been secured for my heir and my legacy. And next time? I'll return with a new plan... and a new face. All these years, Spider-Man and his kind have dealt with a giggling lunatic. A madman. You've never faced the real Norman Osborn, a man with all his wits about him. Poor fools. Next time you'll never see me coming. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 But now, I've made you look at your reflection, and you don't like what you see in the shadows. One of these days, one of us is going to inevitably kill the other. It's coming, Parker... Sooner than you think. And when it does, you're going to have to choose. Quote2

Quote1 It's a new day. So listen carefully... This is how it's going to be. As you all know, I, Norman Osborn, have been given the keys to the kingdom. Tony Stark is out. S.H.I.E.L.D. is no longer. I am heading a new world peacekeeping task force that includes the Initiative and the Avengers franchises. And as far as I am concerned, that is good news for all of you. ... You'll tell me what it is you need, and I'll do that thing. And in return? ... In return, loyalty. Camaraderie. Brothers in arms. ... However, if any of you would sink to your basest instincts...you must know that whatever you have gained from this relationship...can easily be taken away. Like that. By force. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 So we need an incident. An Asgardian incident. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 He's dead. You're dead. You're all dead. He's going to kill you all. I was the only one who could stop him...I was the only one who knew what he really was. How -- how powerful he was. I was saving you all from him. You don't know what you've... Oh, no... I was saving you. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)

Quote1 Gather round, my subjects. We have wonderful news. As Wilson Fisk's former minions join our ranks, and we gobble up his infrastructure... ...we've passed the tipping point. 52% of all organized crime in this town is under our control. And for that, we owe a very special thanks to the Spider-Man. For cutting off the heads and leaving us the bodies. As of right now, your Goblin King is now the Goblin Kingpin of Crime! Hee Hee! Without even lifting a finger... ...I'VE ALREADY WON! NEW YORK IS MINE! Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)

Quote1 Ego. You got me with ego. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 Tell me, in your profession, is there a story if no one lives to tell it? Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 I want you all to listen very carefully. I'm not going to kill you. I'm not even going to arrest you. Because you work for me now. Not the Thunderbolts. ME. But know this. If you ever - EVER - interfere with me again...I will murder your families, your friends, your loved ones. I'll kill them in ways that will make even sociopaths like you WEEP. And then I will torture you to death. Slowly. And I will enjoy every last moment of it. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 Oh, yes. The Steel Spider. Man. Steel Spider, man. No. Steel Spider. The Steel Spider. The Steel Spider Man. Steel. Spider. Man. Spider. Man. Heh. Spider. Man. Spider-Man. Heh. Spider-Man. Spider-Man. Oh God. Heh. Spider-Man. Heh. Ha. Ha ha ha ha. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)

While a single breath remains in our bodies, we will fight and die to keep it! Stand with me! Show them! Let us shout it with one voice! This...is my country. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)

--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 We're calling it H.A.M.M.E.R.. I think it gets the message across ... That this time, we're taking no prisoners. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 Now...just between me and you, here's my little secret. Here's what it all means... The bad guys always win. Me killing you is just perfect symbolism for the times. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 We never know what chain of events we've set in motion as we perform our daily tasks. Wings of a butterfly and all of that. We suit up, show up, screw up. The results of those screwups don't surface for months...maybe years. Breathe in some asbestos on a job site. Twenty years later -- lung cancer. Send a man to jail. A few years later he becomes ruler of the Earth...he uses your best friend to kill you. Quote2
--Norman Osborn (Earth-616)
Quote1 Daken Akihiro is a strategic loaner from my Avengers. His Q numbers are astronomical and I want him to be the gateway brand between the two teams. Turns out people love Wolverine. Can't get enough of him. Who knew? Quote2
