History: (Electronic Gaming Monthly I#123 article - BTS - see comments) - Dr. Curtis Connors was an US Army surgeon until he lost his arm in an explosion. Determined to restore his missing arm, Dr. Connors intensely studied reptile regenerative abilities and ultimately devised a serum that not only regrew his missing arm but inadvertently transformed him into a humanoid reptile. Dubbing himself the Lizard, the transformed Dr. Connors frequently encountered the heroic Spider-Man.

(Spider-Man video game - BTS) - At some point, Curt Connors once again turned into Lizard and settled in the sewer, where he created many reptilian-like monsters.

(Spider-Man video game) - The symbiotic villain Venom crashed into the Lizard's sewer base of operations and locked him in a cage. While Lizard was locked up, Venom set the Lizard's monsters against Spider-Man. Some time later, Spider-Man found the Lizard and learned of Venom's whereabouts from him.

(Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro video game (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Connors was hired as a scientist for the BioTech company.

(Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro video game) - Curt and other scientists worked on the Bio-Nexus Device for the BioTech company. The supercriminal Electro soon discovered that the Bio-Nexus Device could amplify his electrical bio-energy and would theoretically grant him tremendous power. He broke into the laboratory, shocked Connors and stole a part of device. When one of the scientists named Dr. Watts was kidnapped by Electro, Spider-Man thought that Curt might know the reasoning behind the kidnapping. He tried to call Dr. Connors but failed to reach him and ultimately went to BioTech to talk with the doctor personally. Making his way to BioTech, Spider-Man was attacked by Dr. Connors, who had transformed into the Lizard. The superhero created an antidote to restore Dr. Connors to normal and used it to make the Lizard turn back into Connors. When the doctor got his breath, he told Spider-Man about the Bio-Nexus Device, Electro's plans with it and Dr. Watts, who knew about the last part of device.

An article in the video game magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly (#123, October, 1999) features a previous of the then-upcoming Spider-Man video game and includes mini-profiles of this reality's Doctor Octopus and Lizard. Since the Lizard's origin was not revealed in the video game itself and he is treated as an existing Spider-Man villain who had encountered Spider-Man before, the article's profile gives a tiny backstory on this reality's Lizard and it has been included in this profile's History section. --Proto-Man
