The poor, poor Lizard. He just can't catch a break. Not only was he the villain Calypso opted to use as a mindless stooge against Spider-Man in "Torment", but he died and rose again three times. What if, however, he only rose from the dead twice?
As Spider-Man tells Martha Connors the news that her husband has been killed, she reacts with both grief and relief. She had been expecting to hear such news for a long time. However, Billy Connors reacts with rage against Spider-Man. One week later, Spider-Man arrives at Midtown General Hospital to meet Martha Connors. Billy has inexplicably lost his right arm. However, before the web-slinger can get to his room, Calypso arrives and gives Billy a drink to make him "just like daddy".
