"I think it's time to drop the hammer!"
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!"
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.
|Finger Shot||+||Osborn fires an electrical shot from his fingertip that deals chip damage. It has very low durability and causes a large amount of hitstun. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode, and angles downward.|
|Razor Bats||+||Gobby throws spinning razor sharp bat shaped projectiles that can pierce through enemies and hit assist characters if they are out. The angle he throws them are based on which attack button is pressed. L is straight forward, M is at a 25 degree angle, and H at a 50 degree angle. 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.|
|Pumpkin Bomb||+||Goblin throws one of three different Pumpkin Bombs. Each bombs has a different smoke emitting from it and the button can be held to effect how far the bomb is thrown. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode.
|Shock Cuffs||+||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||+||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. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode, and Goblin stays on the glider during the attack.
|Glider Flight||+||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||+||Gobby grabs his shoulder bag and starts spinning it around launching Razor Bats, Poison, Napalm & Exploding Pumpkin Bombs out randomly in all directions. This attack is best used for keep away because it covers most of the screen, and has unreliable effects when used in combos. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode.|
|Goblin Glider||+||Goblin jumps on his signature Goblin Glider and can fly around, and attack from it for 3 seconds. Pressing the different attack buttons causes it to fire different weapons. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode, and Goblin stays on the glider during the attack, but jumps off when the attack ends.
|Trick or Treat (Level 3)||+||Gobby jumps on his glider and flies low across the screen. If he hits his foe, they are knocked into the air and Goblin flies back and lassos the enemy and drags them across the ground. He then flies high up, throwing his enemy into the air and blasting them with a barrage of bombs & missiles. This attack has a long start-up, but has invincibility and ends with a spinning knockdown. This attack can only be performed in mid-air while in flight mode, and greatly reduces the start-up time but ends the flight mode|
