Check out Dr. Connors turned into the Lizard on this weekend’s The Spectacular Spider-Man on the Kids’ WB! on The CW.

In “Natural Selection,” Peter Parker and Spider-Man both must learn to own their choices when decisions made by Dr. Curt Connors transform Pete’s mentor into The Lizard. The episode is written by Matt Wayne and directed by David Bullock.

Interestingly the voice of Curt Connors/The Lizard is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who also voiced the character in the Activision Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro video games.

It only too three issues for the build up and reveal of Connors as the green reptile.  The Major Spoilers Podcast Panel discussed the build up to the Lizard last weekend after watching the first two episodes, and while I can understand the need to get the Lizard out there as quickly as possible (The Spectacular Spider-Man has only 13 episodes this season), I kind of wish the build up lasted a bit longer.  Perhaps if the first season were devoted to developing the relationship between Peter and Dr. Connors, and the relationship between Dr. Connors and his family, the transformation would be even more tragic. I remember it took quite a while for Harvey Dent to become Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series, and would like to have seen it here.

Regardless, the third installment of The Spectacular Spider-Man airs Saturday, March 15 at 10:00 AM.

    I agree. The series is moving at a villain per episode pace (are there 13 major Spidey bad guys?)

    Well…at least they kept him green.
