Brian King was an executive at Phelcorp Industries under whose guideance the company's scientific research department increased, focusing on a program studying lizards. The reformed Dr. Connors worked at facility under King's supervision,[1] and King constantly pressed him to move forward with his research or risk being fired. King's nagging in turn caused Connors' to become influenced by the suppressed personality of the Lizard.[2]

Connors snapped after discovering that his assistant, with whom he was infatuated, slept with King. Connors retreated to his office where King confronted him for his outburst. King tackled Connors to stop him from consuming a vial he believed contained the Lizard Formula, unaware that the serum was actually an antidote. Connors turned into the Lizard and partially cannibalized King.[1]
