Re: The Amazing Spider-Man Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I gotta say, I just started watching that Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, and I thought they handled the Lizard origin in a MUCH more compelling and believable way than the movie.

Having the family there not only made him more sympathetic as Connors, but made him seem quite a bit more dangerous as the Lizard as well. His transformation was a lot more gradual and creepy, and his motivation was a whole lot clearer too. Instead of that odd "World Without Weakness" nonsense, his goal was simply to help amputees grow their limbs back.
