Shortly before her death, Gwen Stacy secretly gave birth to twins, Sarah Stacy and her brother Gabriel. Sarah and her brother were born with enhanced strength and rapid aging rate inherited from their father, Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin, who was superhumanly augmented after imbibing the experimental "Goblin serum." With their mother murdered by their own father, the twins were raised in France under Norman's care. Norman often visited them as their "uncle" and told them a fake story of their birth and father, whom Osborn claimed was Peter Parker otherwise known as Spider-Man. Seeking revenge, Sarah and Gabriel began training, while continuing to age rapidly.
Finding out more information about the twins from a combination of clues on a letter they used to draw him out and memories MJ had of Gwen and Norman arguing while Harry was in the hospital, Peter attempted to try to convince the twins that Norman had been lying to them. Instead, the police intervened and opened fire on all of them. Sarah received a bullet wound while her brother fell into the river.
Peter took Sarah to the hospital, but her body refused all blood transfusions until Peter offered his. She learned that he was telling the truth just as her brother crashed through the hospital window and dragged Peter out to kill him.
In his weakened state, Spider-Man seemed to be no match for Sarah's brother, who before had seemed only a little unstable, but now had become insane due to a second inoculation of the Goblin Serum. Sarah was able to save Spider-Man by shooting her brother's glider and causing him to crash and contract amnesia.
In the confusion, Sarah secretly took her brother back to Paris, where she cared for him at the Osborn estate until the pressure from local drug dealers to repay a debt her brother had incurred became too much for her and she attempted suicide. Peter was called to the hospital as her emergency contact and came to Paris to help. While he was with her, MJ went looking for him at the estate, and inadvertently caused Gabriel to escape in a crazed state.
After cutting a deal with Interpol to catch the dealers, Sarah joined the organization to attempt to find her brother.
