Spider-Man is about to get a very big shake-up. One of Marvel Comics' most prolific Spider-Man writers—Dan Slott—will say farewell to the character in March, but he’s not going quietly.

Norman Osborn will reprise his role as Spider-Man’s archnemesis the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #797. The five-issue arc titled “Go Down Swinging” will be written by Slott, with art by Stuart Immonen and covers by Alex Ross. The book’s editor told The Hollywood Reporter on the event: “You’d almost think that was the biggest Green Goblin story Dan Slott had in him. You’d be wrong.”

The last time the Green Goblin showed his nasty, green latex mug was back in Slott’s Superior Spider-Man run that had Doc Ock taking over Peter Parker's body and serving as his own version of Spider-Man. If that weren't enough for Spidey, it looks like the wall crawler will have a new threat to face: the Red Goblin.

Slott's tenure writing Spider-Man dates back around a decade, and love him or hate him, there's no doubt he's had a massive impact on the character in the modern-day canon. The start of Slott’s end on the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will hit comic shops and digital retailers on March 7.
