I see one of the differences is Temperature Tolerance. I suppose that the 'pure' race is accustomed to the low temperatures associated with the ocean depths? That will make them very uncomfortable at or near the surface... Is that what you're going for?

What changes did you make to the modifiers?

Nice write-up! I think it's better to include the Status (possibly with a note) if he uses it at all. Not having the Status to go with Wealth should probably be a disadvantage.

Yeah, the "pure" race is accustomed to the lower temperatures on the ocean floor. It wouldn't be too out of place, though, for notable exceptions (like Princess Fen, who is on my list of folks to stat up... eventually) to develop a tolerance to the warmer temperatures like their hybrid kin.

As for the modifiers, I added Chemical and Passive Biological, and a paragraph on the interactions between Mutant, Mutant Psionic, Psionic, and Super in a given campaign.

Yet another Spidey villain, and a hopeful for Spider-Man 4. (They've teased us for three movies... bring him on already!)

LIZARD

Real Name: Dr. Curtis Connors.
Occupation: Scientist, university professor.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record.
Identity: Secret.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Coral Gables, Florida.
Marital Status: Married.
Known Relatives: Martha (wife), William (son).
Group Affiliation: None.
Base of Operations: New York City; formerly West Palm Beach, Florida.
History: Dr. Curtis Connors had been a research biochemist at a think-tank firm in Florida when he lost his right arm in a lab accident caused by an intern. The intern lied and placed the blame on Connors, leading to Connors' firing.

Blacklisted by the scientific firms in Florida, he eventually settled into a teaching position at Empire State University in New York City. While there, he studied reptiles, particularly their ability to grow back their limbs and tail, a trait long since removed from the mammalian gene pool. He eventually earned his tenure there after publishing a number of papers on reptilian characteristics.

Connors hoped to be able to duplicate the process in people, with the intent of regrowing his lost arm. After twenty years, he was finally successful, producing a serum which appeared to give lab rats the ability to regrow their legs and tails.

Injecting himself with the serum, Connors was delighted when his arm started to grow back. His delight turned to horror as the arm turned scaly and green, which spread to the rest of his body. This was the first time that Connors became the Lizard.

The Lizard went on a near-mindless rampage through New York, eventually battling Spider-Man, who came to realize who the Lizard really was. Ultimately, Connors's star pupil Gwen Stacy, with Spider-Man's help, managed to develop a biochemical serum which reverted him to human form (see Spider-Man; Stacy, Gwen). However, the changes which led to the Lizard still reside in Connors on a genetic level.

Connors has become the Lizard on at least two other occasions. Each time, he has faced Spider-Man in combat, only to be returned to human form.
Height: 5' 11".
Weight: 175 lbs.
Eyes: Brown.
Hair: (as Connors) Brown, (as Lizard) None.
Skin: (as Lizard) Green scales.
Uniform: None.
Strength Level: Dr. Connors has the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise. As the Lizard, he possesses superhuman strength, enabling him to lift (press) 12 tons.
Known Superhuman Powers: Dr. Connors possesses the ability to grow back his limbs after they've been severed.

As a side-effect of the process which gave him that ability, Connors is able to turn into the super-powered Lizard. As the Lizard, he possesses superhuman strength, sharp claws on both his hands and feet, sharp teeth, and a six and a half foot long tail which he can use as a weapon, striking at up to 70 miles per hour. His hands and feet have retractable claws in the palms and heels which help him climb surfaces that would otherwise be inaccessible. His skin becomes covered with thick scales, like those of an alligator, able to resist (though not invulnerable to) most pistol rounds. His powerful legs enable him to leap 18 feet in a standing broad jump. Also, as the Lizard, he heals much faster, enabling him to regrow his limbs at a faster rate than normal.

The Lizard also appears to have a quasi-telepathic ability to communicate with and command all reptiles within about a one mile radius.
Other Abilities: In his human form, Dr. Connors is a brilliant biologist and biochemist, and is a leading herpetologist (a scientist who studies reptiles).
Limitations: As the Lizard, the R-complex of Connors's brain (the most primitive region of the human brain, containing the basest impulses) overwhelms the cerebrum, causing his mind to become progressively inhuman. Furthermore, he becomes cold-blooded, requiring external heat sources to stay active, and completely colorblind.

Skills: Acrobatics (H) DX-2 [1] 12; Climbing (A) DX-1 [1] 13.
Starting Spending Money: $0.

Design Notes:
1. Dr. Connors has "bought off" the One Arm trait he had before becoming the Lizard. Whether he got the better end of the deal with the other traits is anyone's guess.
2. The Lizard and Dr. Connors share the Regrowth and Unusual Biochemistry traits. I'm still trying to price the Alternate Form, as well as decide whether he qualifies for either Split Personality or Personality Change, so I've added both traits to both forms, essentially treating them as different characters (for now).
3. The Lizard's Speech Impediment disadvantage is simply a renamed Stuttering.

This should be cerebrum. The cerebellum controls balance and motor control.

If he were to hit himself once, the average injury would be 34HP (8D-1=27, 27-4=23, 23X1.5 = 34.5, round down = 34). That's nearly enough to force 2 death checks, from 1 hit. That seems rather fragile.

This is what I get for copying that part almost straight out of the OHOTMUDE without checking the data corrections or doing error-checking myself. Gimme a sec to change it.

Typo. Curt's supposed to have HT 10 (reflected in the FP and Speed scores). Gimme a sec to fix that.

He's not completely done, and thanks for spotting that.

I wasn't sure whether I should give the Lizard straight ST 123 with accompanying HP (and increased damage, somewhere around 13d, I believe), more DR, IT:DR, or a combination of those traits. Or just ditching Striking ST altogether. Suggestions?

Also, any suggestions on what pricing the Alternate Form would have, as while it's on Connors's sheet, it's currently listed without a price. (This is essentially the same issue I ran into with Banner and the Hulk.)

His weight is 550lbs realistically that should be ST16 HP16, and as a comic book character probably higher.

Also HT 12 means he dies rather easliy, given the nature of the marvel universe he should probably have Hard to Kill +4 [8].

I don't see spiderman as able to shrug off bullets, so maybe whatever DR or IT:DR should have crushing only.

Also I'd drop Very Rapid Healing and give him Regeneration: Slow [10]; Regeneration: Regular (Crushing Only -40%)[9].
