The Other "Harrys" (9/19/12)

Other Harry's? Is that a reference to Harry Osborne and if so is he the same one from the Spiderman comics. I take it that it's synonymous with losers, but it's one thing to be a loser it's another to delve into super villainy.

Obviously whoever came up with that piece of slang forgot that Harry Osborn became a super villain.

This is probably the most original Green Goblin origin story ever.

Harry Osborne wasn't just any villain: he was a victim.

I just realised that my comment on that might have been taken as you or Jason forgetting that Harry became a villian; I meant whoever came up with it IN-UNIVERSE forgot that Harry became a villian, and everyone else IN-UNIVERSE is forgetting that treating their "Harrys" like this is a great way to ensure someone rises to become a villian.

At least I hope that's where this is going!

Norman was the real villian. Harry just did it because his head was majorly screwed up by his father. So he was definitely a victim.

Starting to think that syringe contained something other than truth serum since I don't see how being incapable of lying would make Zachary bold enough to talk to a girl he's attracted to and risk turning himself into Baron Underbeit through reckless chemistry experiments.
