A certain new Spidey film franchise is about to start. Spider-Man and the Lizard are fighting already in the latest Amazing Spider-Man comic book arc. But let’s go back to when Webhead was a relative greenhorn…
The wonder of limited TV animation, where most of the characters are redheads and they never drawn all the webs on Spider-Man’s costume. This version of Spidey would go on to become an Internet superstar.
“Where Crawls the Lizard” – September 1967
On assignment in the Everglades, Peter Parker runs, swings, and self-propells (!) his way through the swamp in search of the Lizard. Meanwhile, Dr. Curt Connor is missing. As Spider-Man, he encounters the Lizard underwater, in Dr. Connor’s Lab, and a gator-infested (use your imagination!) castle.
There Spidey defeats the super-strong reptile and gives him a dose of the serum. Dr. Connor is normal again and can resume life with his wife and son.
“Connor’s Reptiles” – September 1970
Spider-Man and the Lizard fight for the first time again! With slight new animations, rearranged scenes, and altered backgrounds that appear that Spidey’s swinging through the cosmos.
