"I think it's time to drop the hammer!"
—Pre-match quote

Norman Osborn has become one of the Marvel's most dangerous villains. He started off as Spider-Man's main enemy and nemesis, but he has become a major threat to every hero in the Marvel Universe. Time for Gobby to get his spot in the MvC roster. Osborn's moveset was not easy buy any means, but I figured he can still fight without his Glider.

"Osborn's mind? Sorry you've dialed the wrong number. I'm glad it's a mistake though, and not a rescue attempt. I hate to be indebted to those I'm about to kill!"
—Post-match quote

Goblin is a Hard Hitting, Zoning Character with a large amount of range tools. His attacks are slow, but take up a lot of space and time, different speeds and can be very random at times. The goal with Goblin is to make it hard for foes to predict what Gobby will do next. Unique to Goblin's assists attacks, Goblin is riding his Glider during his Glider assists making him very safe, but it's still possible to hit Osborn out of these attacks. Goblin has an average walk speed & wave dash, 2-way air dash, and a very unique flight mode. Goblin's flight mode involves his Glider, and lasts longer then most flight modes, but limits Goblin's attacks options. This flight mode can also be used to reduce the risk and start-up time of many of Gobby's attacks, and makes a great defensive tool. Goblin's normal attacks are slow but damaging, and he can only link his light to hard, not medium to hard, and his crouching hard causes a hard knockdown so it can't link into his launcher. The Goblin Glider hyper attack is ment to resemble Megaman's Beat Plain hyper attack to bring back that gameplay element. This hyper attack has a Crossover hyper version where he fires multiple Pumpkin Missiles at his enemy.

Gobby can throw up to three of them in any order simply by pressing the attack buttons quickly. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode, and all reflect downward.

  • Explosive Attack hard: Gobby throws a bomb with an orange smoke that explodes when it stops moving or hits an enemy, causing good damage and a soft knockdown.
Shock Cuffs AS S+Special Goblin grabs his enemy by the wrist and electrocutes them. This is a grab special with average reach, but it can be Kara-cancelled off of his normal attacks to extend the range. This move leaves the enemy in a crumple state, allowing for an easy follow up combo.
Glider Strike Arcade Stick QCB+Attack button Gobby calls in his Goblin Glider to attack his enemy with different weapons. The weapon, height & speed of the attack depends on which attack button used.

Glider Flight Arcade Modifier (Air)Arcade Stick QCB+Special Goblin's flight mode lasts longer then any other flight mode in the game, and his normal air movement is faster then normal, but he cannot air dash while in this mode. The normal start-up time for this very long if performed on the ground cause Goblin needs to jump into the air to get on his glider, but if performed in the air, the glider flies underneath Goblin and cuts the start-up time in half. Gobby can perform certain specials & hypers while in flight mode, and his normal attacks change.
Bag of Tricks Arcade Stick QCF+Attack button 2x Gobby grabs his shoulder bag and starts spinning it around launching Razor Bats, Poison, Napalm & Exploding Pumpkin Bombs out randomly in all directions.
