Following a disastrous self trail of a new formula, Oscorp founder Norman Osborn is driven insane and becomes the Green Goblin. He has terrorised the city, but has been hindered throughout by Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man.
The final fight scene sees Osborn and Parker square off in a derelict house. Parker beats the crap out of Green Goblin but hesitates when Osborn's personality manages to filter through, and he begs Spider-Man to help and forgive him.
This benevolence does not last long though. As Spiderman is explaining that he must pay for his crimes, the Green Goblin has surreptitiously moved his glider directly behind Spider-Man. He fires the glider straight at Spider-Man, in the hope of killing him on the rather large spikes that protrude from the front of the glider.
Spider-Man's spider sense was tingling though, and he was aware of the danger. With perfect timing, Spider-Man skilfully backward somersaults over the rapidly advancing glider to safety.
The Green Goblin's plan was not well thought out as, with Spider-Man out of the flight path, he has become the next thing it will hit. In my opinion the speed of the glider was such that, that even if it had hit Spider-Man, it would have carried on and impaled the Green Goblin regardless.
The blades impale Osborn and have enough force to punch through the brick wall of the house, pinning the Green Goblin to it. Needless to say, this is enough to kill the Green Goblin.
