Dr. Connors Is Sentenced To Rikers In The Latest AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Viral Article
You know the drill by now- another day, another Daily Bugle viral article from The Amazing Spider-Man Tumblr page. This time it’s a follow-up on a story published back in October. Dr. Curt Connors went on trial for the death and destruction he caused while in his scaly state as The Lizard. Well tonight the trial has concluded and Connors has been found guilty on all twenty counts he was indicted on, including the murder of Captain George Stacy.
The Bugle‘s Joy Mercado reports on the ruling. Dr. Connors is being sent to Rikers to serve out his sentence, though the Ravencroft Institute argues their…unique…facilities are better suited for a prisoner of Connors‘ standing. Ravencroft will play a substantial role in the upcoming sequel, so it looks like the viral marketing is moving some pieces into place. Lizard is a very likely candidate for the recently announced Sinister Six film, so I’m sure it’s a safe bet that we haven’t seen the last of him yet. You can read the full article below. What do you think about the latest edition of The Bugle?

The trial of Dr. Curt Connors came to an end as the former geneticist for Oscorp Industries was found guilty on all twenty counts for which he was indicted, including the murder of NYPD Captain George Stacy.
Connors and his attorney, Anne Weying, were unable to convince the jury that he was not responsible for his deadly actions while transformed. His defense that he only injected himself with the serum that changed him into the Lizard to prevent Oscorp Industries from experimenting on innocent civilians did not sway the jury.
Next stop: Rikers. But even that is controversial. Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane has said their facility is better served for housing and studying a prisoner such as Connors, but the judge has yet to rule on where Curt Connors will spend what is likely to be the rest of his life.
