The folks at Activision have revealed another classic Marvel Super Villain for its upcoming web slinging adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man. This seven-foot tall, mutated reptile will be terrorizing the citizens of Manhattan. Meet The Iguana.
Of all the cross-species to come out of Oscorp, only Iguana was never claimed as a creation of any of the company’s scientists. That’s because its true creator, Curt Connors himself, had no idea that one of his own former experiments would evolve to its current fearsome form. Connors’ go-to lab animal, an iguana he referred to as “Iggy,” had weathered so many odd experiments over the past few months, it was a wonder the small reptile was still alive. Somewhere along the way, Connors had injected Iggy with a formula that appeared to have no effect at all. And it didn’t – at least not in and of itself. What this particular injection did manage, however, was to serve as a catalyst that slowly warped and mutated intended effects of other experimentations upon the animal for months to come.
Shortly after Connors became the Lizard, Iguana revealed himself within the walls of Oscorp in all his seven-foot glory. As it turns out, after gestating for months, all of the strange science going on inside Iggy’s body had come to a head in the course of a couple of hours, morphing him into the remarkable being terrorizing Manhattan today
The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released on June 26, 2012.
