Dr. Curtis Connors was an Army surgeon whose right arm was amputated when it became gangrenous from a war wound. Unable to remain a surgeon, Connors undertook the scientific study of reptiles, soon becoming a leading authority. Reptiles still possess the ability to regenerate missing limbs, and Connors discovered the precise chemical substance that confers this ability. Administering it to himself, he succeeded in regenerating his missing arm but the mutagenic effects of the chemical did not end and caused a body-wide transformation to a reptilian-humanoid form.
