Curt Connors is Peter Parker's professor of quantum mechanics at Columbia University. He lost his right arm in war, but he keeps teaching and researching despite that. Connors considers Parker a brilliant student, but lazy, as he tells his friend Otto Octavius.
Curt Connors keeps teaching in Peter Parker's course, having in class Gwen Stacy too. When Peter brings him a strange substanceto analyze, Connors discovers it's a unique organism, a symbiote which links to an host having a great influence on the latter's body and possibly mind.
- Canon (4 films)
- In Spider-Man 3 when Peter brings him a sample of the venom symbiote from his costume to analyze, Connors states, "I am a physicist, not a biologist". This directly contradicts the origins of Connors' lizard-related research from the comics.
- Conners never became The Lizard in this series, although it was rumored that he was one of the villains of Spider-Man 4, meaning that he finally would have transformed into his alter-ego.
