Although Osborn's past has been alluded to, very little is known about it, other than his father was an abusive alcoholic who often beat his son.
Eventually, after earning enough money working in his high school and college years, Norman started up Oscorp Industries. He eventually married the love of his wife, Emily, and the two bore a son, Harry.
Eventually, Emily fell deathly ill, and Norman buried himself in his work, trying to find a cure for his wife's illness. He eventually discovered the energy particle Calnesium, which contained characteristics similar to that of cosmic energy. He then tested the formula out on several different animals to ensure it's safety, including eels, a rhino, chimps, and spiders. While demonstrating the particle as a new Super-Soldier Serum, one of the spiders infused with the particle would eventually go on to bite high school student Peter Parker. Eventually, after several successful tests, Norman injected Emily with Calnesium, and she made a successful recovery.
Becoming the Goblin
After managing to save his wife, Norman continued to experiment with Calnesium, trying to find a way to sell it off to the military in the form of a new Super-Soldier Serum. However, the experiment blew up in his face and accelerated the mutations of other organisms as well, leading to the creations of the villains Electro and Rhino. Osborn himself was mutated, and he managed to barely escape with his life.
After escaping the lab, Norman stumbled around the streets of New York for a while, his skin having turned to a deep shade of forest green.
