Doctor Curt Connors was an army surgeon who lost his arm. Turning to biology, he became fascinated by reptiles’ ability to regenerate missing limbs. Somehow extracting the chemical responsible for this, he tested the substance on himself. His arm did indeed grow back; alas, Connor’s was soon transformed into a malevolent monstrosity, the Lizard.

Peter Parker, also known as Spider-Man, knew and respected Connors, and successfully defeated his murderous alter-ego and cured his condition. Unfortunately, the damage to Connor’s genetic makeup was permanent, and many times has he reverted to his reptilian form.

The Lizard is every bit as intelligent as Connors, but is utterly without scruples. One scheme of his involved transforming all of Manhattan into a tropical rainforest. Another was to make everyone in Manhattan into a similar creature. Nevertheless, he is continuously beaten by Parker.

In the DCU, the Lizard is a natural for Gotham City. Heck, in that town, a giant carnivorous reptile MD would probably be one of the saner residents.
