All the supervillains from the Spider-Man films have made their significant appearance in Marvel’s latest release, Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, it was the Lizard who looked quite complex as a villain out of all. With that being said, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange brought five supervillains from alternate realities into the current Marvel Cinematic Universe. They all were not aware of Spider-Man’s real identity. However, in a journey to cure all these supervillains, Peter Parker comes to know that they are not really malicious. And out of all of them, the Lizard was the most complex one, emotionally.

Furthermore, the Lizard was one of the most significant villains Marvel fans have ever seen in the past. It appeared in the 2012’s released movie, The Amazing Spider-Man. With that said, when Doctor Curt Connors ran an experiment using a regenerative serum on himself, he apparently missed his arm and slowly got transformed into a giant reptile. Not only that, the experiment warped Doctor’s mind as well. When the villainous reptile became out of control, it was Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man who defeated it and turned it back into the human form with the help of an antidote.

However, the movie took time when the Lizard was menacing Holland’s Spider-Man and helped the fans get a reminder of what happened with Doctor Connors in the past. In fact, Doctor Connors has been a prisoner in Doctor Stephen Strange’s Sanctorum as well. Additionally, Spider-Man: No Way Home tried to echo another side of its character that most fans ignored or say overlooked. It was the fact that Doctor Connors was quite kind to Max Dillon before he became Electro.

Max Dillon’s Electro – The Recap

The second amongst all the villains to appear from different alternative timelines in Spider-Man: No Way Home was Max Dillon. He became Electro after undergoing a laboratory accident that offered him electricity-oriented superpowers in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With that being said, out of all the members and characters that got an opportunity to meet with Dillon, it was only Gwen Stacy and Spider-Man who treated him with kindness and respect. On the other hand, Harry Osborn, aka Green Goblin, was only there so that he could use him as a weapon.

When both these villains showed up in Strange’s captivity, it was the Lizard who passed comment on Electro’s appearance. It is because Doctor Connors was more used to Dillon’s before accidental look. This is exactly what depicts that whether the Lizard or not, at least Doctor Connors did notice Maxwell Dillon and his new appearance.

With that being said, the Lizard’s depiction in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home has been one of the rarest examples of why the iteration of all the Spider-Men was necessary to pull off after all. Undoubtedly, Spider-Man: No Way Home has honored such depictions all through and that is how it made Doctor Connor’s villainous character turn complex in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
