A Pumpkin Bomb is a grenade-like weapon used by the three Goblins.


There are three different types of pumpkin bombs.

  • Gas: Releases a cloud of gas that can knock a person out or be used to block sight.
  • Concussion: To cause damage by shock alone.
  • Fragmentation: Sends out small pieces of shrapnel to destroy a certain radius around the device.

When thrown, the stem/fuse ignites and eventually explodes.


The pumpkin bomb was developed by Norman Osborn of Oscorp Industries for the supervillain Hobgoblin.

As with the rest of Hobgoblin's motif, it follows a Halloween theme. The bombs themselves resemble Jack-o'-Lanterns.

When Norman became the Green Goblin he also used the bombs. Harry Osborn used them when taking up his father's mantle.

Peter Parker once stumbled upon a cache of Goblin weapons, but was followed by the Punisher. He used one of the bombs to flee from the vigilante.
