Have to love how hard comics ride their movie counterparts. It is no doubt that Slott decided that having a Lizard story-arc coincide with the release of "The Amazing Spider-Man" would bring in readers. The thing that sticks though is that it is a growth series for Doc Connors rather than a rehash origin story like the movie.
I think it is always cool to see the internal monologue of characters in comics and Doctor Connors may have the most disturbed one there is. He is plainly up to no good and is trying to push all blame and focus onto Dr. Morbius, The Living Vampire, which he does fairly successfully.
Doctor Connors is spending this issue trying to find a way to turn BACK into the Lizard for he has no real desire to be a human anymore. Spider-Man is too busy chasing the bait that is Dr. Morbius to see what is happening.
I am intrigued to see where this story leads but it definitely lost a little something this week. It may have something to do with two issues coming out in back-to-back weeks.
Regardless, I have Amazing Spider-Man #689 a 7/10...
