Burgess will always be the Penguin and Mickey but I will also remember him as the profane as hell, uber sexually charged old man from Grumpy Old Men. Nothing like hearing a string of sexual euphemisms from a 90 year old man.
Think of everything that the Green Goblin has done in the world of Spider-Man, and think of everything that Doc Ock has done — Doc Ock is the guy who killed Peter Parker! You don't get better ranking points on villainy than that. So you have two of Spider-Man's greatest foes — the two greatest foes — heading toward a collision....I've got a pit over here filled with people I've killed in Spider-Man. So I mean this in all seriousness: When you hit "Goblin Nation," all bets are off. No one is safe. No one is safe.
