22 Machine Man 21

In a secured chamber within Alex's secret base, Peter, Alex, and Gwen gathered around a human-sized glass tube containing Norman Osborn. The prominent figure, normally a force to be reckoned with, floated unconscious within the tube, connected to an oxygen mask. The vibrant green liquid filling the chamber seemed to intensify in color as time passed, creating an otherworldly atmosphere.

As the seconds ticked away, Skynet's authoritative voice echoed in the room, proclaiming the success of the operation. The vibrant green liquid began to recede, draining from below the glass with a soft, rhythmic sound. Mechanical arms, resembling intricate tendrils, extended from the walls, delicately reaching for Norman Osborn and securing him in place. The chamber opened with a faint hissing sound, releasing a rush of air.

Skynet initiated a comprehensive scan, providing a detailed report on the status of the CX.00009 compound. The compound level was now at zero, indicating the successful completion of the procedure. Norman's blood levels, heart rate, and other vital signs were all gradually dropping, monitored by the advanced technology surrounding him. The room held a mix of anticipation and tension as the group awaited the outcome of this groundbreaking experiment.

Skynet initiated a comprehensive scan, reporting that the CX.00009 compound level was now at zero. Norman's blood levels, heart rate, and other vital signs were all slowly dropping.

In perfect synchronization, multiple mechanical arms moved with graceful precision, gently transferring Norman into the healing chamber. With a seamless transition, the healing chamber closed, resembling a high-tech sarcophagus. Nano bots, invisible to the naked eye, began their intricate work, healing Norman at a cellular level.

Once the healing process was complete, the chamber opened, revealing Norman Osborn in a hospital gown. Skynet provided a final update, confirming the success of the healing procedure. Norman lay there, seemingly at peace, and the room exuded a sense of relief as the trio observed the outcome of their collaborative efforts.

After Norman Osborn woke up, he was flooded with memories of the terrible things he had done as the Green Goblin. Skynet alerted Specter, Spider-Man, and Gwen, and they cautiously entered the chamber where Norman was recovering.

Specter now fully suit up, Spider-Man, and Gwen who is now donned in a suit borrowed from Specters old equipment, cautiously entered the chamber. The door slid open with a high-tech sound, and the trio confronted the man who had grappled with the monstrous alter ego known as the Green Goblin.

Specter, known for his stoic demeanor, approached with caution but offered a greeting to the awakened Norman. "Norman, welcome back," he said, his cybernetic eyes assessing the emotional turmoil in Norman's gaze.

Spider-Man, ever the talkative hero, chimed in, "Hey, big guy, long nap, huh? Not the most comfortable bed, but we call it high-tech chic."

Gwen, with a more serious tone, added, "Norman, we need to run some tests to ensure everything is okay. Sky will you please assist us."

Norman, still grappling with the memories of his destructive actions, nodded in acknowledgment. Under the watchful eye of Specter, Gwen, assisted by Skynet, conducted various tests to gauge Norman's mental state and ensure the eradication of the Green Goblin persona.

As the tests progressed, the atmosphere shifted from tension to a cautious optimism. Norman, faced with the reality of his past deeds, expressed remorse and sorrow. The trio, each contributing their unique perspectives, navigated the delicate process of helping Norman reclaim control over his identity.

Days past Norman Osborn, now on a path of redemption, decided to face the public and address the dark chapter of his life as the Green Goblin. He called for a press conference; an event that drew the attention of numerous news outlets eager to capture the shocking revelations.

Although worried for his son, he is now hopeful since there is a cure for him and he no longer have to worry or be pressured about his future.

The press conference hall was filled with a mix of journalists from different news stations, all poised with questions and anticipation. The air was thick with tension as Norman stepped up to the podium, a man burdened by the weight of his past actions.

Norman began, "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for being here today. I have called this press conference to address the heinous crimes I committed as the Green Goblin. I want to be transparent about my past, no matter how dark it may be."

The room buzzed with whispers as reporters readied their cameras and pens, eager to capture every moment of this unexpected revelation.

A reporter from a prominent news station raised their hand, and Norman pointed towards them. "Mr. Osborn, can you elaborate on the chemical influence that led to your alter ego, the Green Goblin?"

Norman took a deep breath before responding, "Certainly. I was exposed to a chemical known as CX.00009, which altered my personality and turned me into a danger to society. It doesn't excuse my actions, but it provides context to the events that unfolded."

Another reporter chimed in, "Do you plead guilty to the crimes committed as the Green Goblin?"

Norman, with a solemn expression, replied, "Yes, I plead guilty to the crimes I committed. I take full responsibility for the pain and suffering I caused."

The room filled with a mix of gasps and murmurs as the gravity of Norman's confession settled in.

Harry Osborn, present at the press conference, looked on in shock, absorbing the truth about his father's recent debacle.

More reporters jumped in, firing questions from different angles. Norman faced the barrage, answering each inquiry with a commitment to transparency and accountability.

As the press conference concluded, the room buzzed with the aftermath of Norman Osborn's shocking revelations. Among the attendees, George Stacy, along with a contingent of police officers, approached Norman. The atmosphere was tense as they prepared to take him into custody.

George Stacy, a seasoned police officer, looked at Norman with a firm expression. "Mr. Osborn, you are under arrest for the crimes you've confessed to, as the Green Goblin. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you?"

Norman, his hands raised in surrender, nodded in acknowledgment. "I understand, Officer Stacy. I'm ready to face the consequences of my actions."

As the handcuffs clicked into place, reporters swarmed, capturing the moment as the once powerful figure was led away by the police. Questions from the press continued to fly.

A reporter shouted, "What do you have to say about the charges, Mr. Osborn?"

Norman, maintaining a level composure, replied, "I am ready to face the legal system and accept whatever judgment comes my way. I am committed to making amends for the pain I've caused."

George Stacy, leading the way, directed his officers to move forward. The journey to the police vehicle was accompanied by the incessant clicks of cameras and the murmur of reporters discussing the unprecedented turn of events.

As Norman was placed into the police vehicle, George Stacy spoke to the press, "This is now a legal matter, and Mr. Osborn will be given a fair trial. Our focus is on upholding justice and ensuring a thorough investigation."

The police vehicle pulled away, leaving behind a crowd of reporters still digesting the magnitude of the day's revelations.

In a secured military facility, General Raymond Slocum and his attendants gathered around a large screen, knowing what awaited them. They were well aware that the experimental serum that Oscorp had developed was far from the revolutionary breakthrough they had hoped for.

As Norman Osborn, the unexpected test subject, stood before the press confessing to heinous crimes committed under the influence of the serum, the general and his team exchanged glances. Shock registered on their faces, not at the failure of the serum, but at Norman actually using himself as a Guinea pig.

General Slocum muttered, "We anticipated aggression, violence, insanity... but using it on himself? That was beyond our calculations."

The attendants nodded in agreement; their disappointment mixed with a certain level of surprise. The screen showed the chaos unfolding at Norman's press conference, and the military personnel couldn't help but wonder about the removal of the serum from his body.

"I didn't think he'd survive it, let alone confess to everything," Colonel Anderson remarked, his skepticism evident.

The general, though disappointed, couldn't deny a certain curiosity about the successful extraction of the serum. "I'm just surprise that they manage to cleanse it from his system".

Another chimed in saying, should we investigate this matter and see if we could push the serum on another level?

General Slocum with a stern expression said. No this is already a blunder we can't recover from. We can just use Osborn as a shield to wash our hands on this.

As the TV continued to broadcast the aftermath of the failed experiment, the military personnel contemplated their next moves. The disappointment of the serum's failure was now coupled with a newfound intrigue surrounding its unexpected consequences.
