The Amazing Spider-Man recently had a moment to remember thanks to the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, and My Hero Academia creator Kohei Horikoshi recently revealed a major influence that the Web Slinger and his gallery have on them. thieves had on his epic Shonen story. With Willem Dafoe returning as the Green Goblin in the latest film, it seems an earlier rendition of the Goblin helped create one of the most notable members of UA Academy’s Class 1-B.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 first hit theaters in 2014, introducing us to a new version of Harry Osborn played by Dane DeHaan, who sought to cure a deadly disease ravaging his system by examining Spider-Man’s blood. While DeHaan didn’t make his return in No Way Home, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, the other villain of this Spider-Sequel, returned with a new look to fight both his Spider-Man to Andrew Garfield as well than against Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland. We don’t know if we’ll ever see DeHaan in the role again, but with comic book movies taking the opportunity to dive into the past, we could see this unique Green Goblin make an appearance somewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. .

In a recent issue of Weekly Shonen JumpHorikoshi shared that he modeled the vain hero Neito Monoma from Dane DeHaan’s version of Harry Osborn who eventually found himself taking a glider and terrorizing the skies as the Green Goblin, ultimately being the cause of Emma Stone’s Death of Gwent Stacy.

Neito Monoma is one of the most notable heroes of Class 1-B, the class rivals home to Midoriya, Bakugo, Shoto Todoroki, and more, and possesses a Quirk that makes him one of the strongest young heroes. dangerous. Upon making contact with someone, he is able to copy their Quirks and can store four to four different Quirks in his system for ten minutes once he uses them. Despite his strength, he was ultimately unable to pull off a 1-B vs. 1-A victory in the Joint Training Exercise Arc.
