"Are you kidding? My dad is not a role model. He's a user. He'll do anything, manipulate anyone, in order to reach his goal. He doesn't care about you, or me, or anyone. All he cares about is himself, and how to make more money. That's all he's ever cared about since I was born."

Norman was born into the Osborn fortune, ready to take over Oscorp from the start. However, he was forced to go to school like a normal kid. However, he was able to skip a grade and was still smarter than everyone else. Eventually, when Norman was fifteen, he was accepted into college.
College and Early Graduation
Norman went through college like it was nothing. He graduated at the age of nineteen, the same year his father died and he inherited Oscorp. He was overjoyed, and he did not care for his father's death. After a year of running Oscorp, he met a woman named Emily Mayfield, and he fell in love with her.
Norman proposed to Emily, but she refused, saying she wasn't ready. After waiting two months, he proposed again, and she said yes. They were married so and it wasn't long until Emily was pregnant. However, when giving birth, the process was very painful, and she was already sick. Not long after their baby was born, she died, which caused Norman to resent his own son.
After nearly 17 years, he still hadn't gotten over Emily's death. However, in that time, he teamed up with Tony Stark in order to provide clean energy across the globe. But the alliance did not last very long. Later, Norman began engineering a secret cross-species genetics experiment, but Spider-Man kept interfering with his shipments, which happened to be illegal.
Funding Criminal Activity
Norman later believed Spider-Man had crossed the line, so he teamed up with Wilson Fisk in order to create supervillains capable of bringing him down. When most of their projects failed, Osborn terminated any connections to Fisk in order to keep Oscorp's good image.
