Doctor Curtis Connors was a scientist, and also a teacher at Empire State University, New York City.
Curt had lost an arm in an accident, and decided to experiment with reptilian cells and a device called the "neogenic recombinator" in order to attempt to re-grow the arm. The operation was initially successful, but a side-effect meant that Curt transformed into a humanoid reptile himself. He then planned to use the recombinator to create a new race, which would make all humans similar to him. Spider-Man stopped him and used the recombinator to transform the Lizard back into Curt.
Curt helped Spider-Man when the wall-crawler bonded with an alien symbiote, and Curt explained to him that the symbiote had chosen him as a host and would eventually replace him. However, the symbiote took over Spider-Man's body and drove him into killing several people. Connors tried to persuade him to get rid of it, but Spider-Man got angry with him for suggesting this and attacked him. As a result of the stress, Curt turned into the Lizard and fought him, but Spider-Man killed him.
