'''{{C|Africa|ua}}''' is a continent on the planet Earth as seen in {{ua2}}. The film only shows the two nations {{C|Wakanda|ua}} and {{C|Egypt|ua}}. The film was released before the introduction of {{C|Black Panther|ua}} and Wakanda in the ''Ultimate'' [[Marvel Comics]] line, so is based on the original Earth-616 continuity.

'''{{eps|Night of the Lizard}}''' is the series premiere of {{sm}}. It originally aired November 19th, 1994 as part of a sneak preview and made its first regular-run appearance on March 4th, 1995. The episode features slightly different animation than the rest of the series, which would become more obvious when footage was reused in later episodes. The episode was written by Gerry Conway, [[Stan Berkowitz]], and [[John Semper, Jr.]] while Robert Shellhorn served as supervising director.
   
Long ago, an enormous mountain-sized {{C|meteorite|ua}} of pure {{C|vibranium|ua}} crashed into Africa. Humans settled on top of the meteorite calling the land Wakanda, discovered the vibranium, and began mining and refining it. They became very powerful and were never invaded. At the same time, humans settled in a desert region called Egypt and built the {{C|Pyramids of Giza|ua}}. An alien race known as the {{C|Chitauri|ua}} tracked the meteorite to Earth.

[[Spider-Man]] ([[Christopher Daniel Barnes]]) looks over his [[New York City|city]] wishing everything were as peaceful as it looked from atop the skyscrappers. Down in the sewers, two technicians ([[Hank Azaria]] and Ken Chandler) are working when a large creature attacks them. They escape to the surface but one is dragged back down. The other races off in the work van and Spider-Man saves him from crashing into the river. At ''[[The Daily Bugle]]'', [[Joseph Robertson|Robbie Robertson]] ([[Rodney Saulsberry]]) congratulates Peter Parker on the quality of his Spider-Man photos and wonders if he can get any pictures of the [[Lizard]]. [[J. Jonah Jameson]] ([[Edward Asner]]) tells Peter that there are reports of a lizard-like creature in the sewers. [[Eddie Brock]] (Azaria) gets the assignment but Peter knows Dr. [[Curt Connors]] ([[Joseph Campanella]]), an expert in reptiles. Jameson decides that whoever first gets a picture of Lizard gets a bonus.
   
The Chitauri came to Earth and infiltrated Germany. During {{C|World War II|ua}}, the Chituari leader known as {{C|Herr Kleiser|ua}} led a group of Chitauri into Wakanda. He spoke to King Azzari the Wise speaking of peace. However, he attacked the nation to steal the meteorite. The Wakandans shot down the {{C|Chitauri Ship|ua|Chitauri ship}} and drove the aliens out. They then used the ship as a power source. The incident made the nation extremely xenophobic, becoming distrustful of any outside person and even Wakandans who left the country.

Peter thinks about getting a motorcycle to get around the city. But at his home, he notices some past due bills for [[May Parker|Aunt May]] ([[Linda Gary]]) and decides to use the money to help her. Spider-Man goes into the sewers and finds an enormous reptilian footprint. At Empire State University, he meets with [[Debra Whitman]] ([[Liz Georges]]) who notes that the footprint looks deep, like something walking on two legs. They enter the science hall when the power goes out. Peter's [[Spider-Sense]] goes off and they find Lizard in Connors' office, who is stealing something. Afterwards, Peter remembers helping Connors use lizard DNA to regrow a mouse's missing limb.
   
When Azzari's son {{C|T'Chaka|ua}} took over as king, he began preparations for another invasion by the Chitauri. He sent his son {{C|T'Challa|ua}} away to learn the ways of the outside world. T'Chaka also built high-tech weapons and defenses while even having the occasional contact with {{C|Nick Fury|ua}} of {{C|S.H.I.E.L.D.|ua}} in {{C|New York City|ua}}. He kept an eye on the events in the United States after hearing that the Chitauri had returned but were defeated by the {{C|Avengers|ua}} led by WWII hero {{C|Captain America|ua}}. When T'Challa returned, so did the Chitauri. T'Chaka became Black Panther and fought Kleiser but was killed.
+
Lizard and Spider-Man go to Connors' house to see Curt's wife [[Martha Connors|Martha]] ([[Giselle Loren]]) and son [[Billy Connors|Billy]] ([[Toby Scott Ganger]]). Spider-Man asks about Curt but Martha doesn't want to talk about him. They hear Eddie screaming as he's being attacked by Lizard. Spider-Man engages him but finds his opponent faster and stronger and he is defeated. Billy calls Lizard dad and the reptile flees. Spider-Man questions the two Connors and learns Lizard is actually Curt transformed. He used the [[Neogenic Recombinator]] on himself to regrow his missing arm, but when he came home he began turning into a lizard. Spider-Man chases after Eddie to stop the reporter from ruining his friend's life. However, Lizard uses the distraction to kidnap Martha.
   
T'Challa took the throne and mantle of Black Panther. He contacted Captain America and Nick Fury, but got no information on how to destroy Kleiser. The Avengers infiltrated Wakanda to find the Chitauri and were found by Black Panther. He took Captain America into the city and explained their history with the aliens. The other Avengers were discovered and though Black Panther ordered them gone the tribal elders stripped T'Challa of his royal powers. After being tricked by Kleiser, the Avenger's were nearly killed by the {{C|Chitauri Command Ship|ua}}, which then settled over Wakanda and began a siege of the planet focusing on Wakanda. While his people fought the aliens, T'Challa contacted Fury explaining why the aliens were on Earth. The Avengers appeared and helped fend off the Chitauri. They destroyed the command ship while Black Panther and Captain America trapped Kleiser in vibranium. The Avengers returned to New York while T'Challa's powers were restored.

Spider-Man follows Lizard through sewers, noting that the [[Fantastic Four]], [[Avengers]], and [[Defenders]] never end up in the sewers like he does, though maybe [[Hulk]] will. He struggles through the grimy, slime covered surfaces, eventually stopping to lament helping Curt in his experiments that caused this. He then finds the missing technician, who explains that Lizard wanted him to work on something electrical until he became too tired. Spider-Man then finds Lizard and Martha. Lizard explains he wants to be with Martha and intends to convert the entire city into lizard creatures like himself. Spider-Man readies his camera and attacks. Lizard again overpowers him but he easily evades the attacks. The webslinger gets ahold of the Recombinator but Lizard tackles him into the water. They fight until Spider-Man activates the device changing him back. The next day, Eddie brings Jameson to Connors' house intending to prove his story, but Curt answers hurting Eddie's reputation.

Curt Uses Recombinator on Himself

"Night of the Lizard" is the series premiere of Spider-Man. It originally aired November 19th, 1994 as part of a sneak preview and made its first regular-run appearance on March 4th, 1995. The episode features slightly different animation than the rest of the series, which would become more obvious when footage was reused in later episodes. The episode was written by Gerry Conway, Stan Berkowitz, and John Semper, Jr. while Robert Shellhorn served as supervising director.

Spider-Man (Christopher Daniel Barnes) looks over his city wishing everything were as peaceful as it looked from atop the skyscrappers. Down in the sewers, two technicians (Hank Azaria and Ken Chandler) are working when a large creature attacks them. They escape to the surface but one is dragged back down. The other races off in the work van and Spider-Man saves him from crashing into the river. At The Daily Bugle, Robbie Robertson (Rodney Saulsberry) congratulates Peter Parker on the quality of his Spider-Man photos and wonders if he can get any pictures of the Lizard. J. Jonah Jameson (Edward Asner) tells Peter that there are reports of a lizard-like creature in the sewers. Eddie Brock (Azaria) gets the assignment but Peter knows Dr. Curt Connors (Joseph Campanella), an expert in reptiles. Jameson decides that whoever first gets a picture of Lizard gets a bonus.

Peter thinks about getting a motorcycle to get around the city. But at his home, he notices some past due bills for Aunt May (Linda Gary) and decides to use the money to help her. Spider-Man goes into the sewers and finds an enormous reptilian footprint. At Empire State University, he meets with Debra Whitman (Liz Georges) who notes that the footprint looks deep, like something walking on two legs. They enter the science hall when the power goes out. Peter's Spider-Sense goes off and they find Lizard in Connors' office, who is stealing something. Afterwards, Peter remembers helping Connors use lizard DNA to regrow a mouse's missing limb.

Lizard and Spider-Man go to Connors' house to see Curt's wife Martha (Giselle Loren) and son Billy (Toby Scott Ganger). Spider-Man asks about Curt but Martha doesn't want to talk about him. They hear Eddie screaming as he's being attacked by Lizard. Spider-Man engages him but finds his opponent faster and stronger and he is defeated. Billy calls Lizard dad and the reptile flees. Spider-Man questions the two Connors and learns Lizard is actually Curt transformed. He used the Neogenic Recombinator on himself to regrow his missing arm, but when he came home he began turning into a lizard. Spider-Man chases after Eddie to stop the reporter from ruining his friend's life. However, Lizard uses the distraction to kidnap Martha.

Spider-Man follows Lizard through sewers, noting that the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and Defenders never end up in the sewers like he does, though maybe Hulk will. He struggles through the grimy, slime covered surfaces, eventually stopping to lament helping Curt in his experiments that caused this. He then finds the missing technician, who explains that Lizard wanted him to work on something electrical until he became too tired. Spider-Man then finds Lizard and Martha. Lizard explains he wants to be with Martha and intends to convert the entire city into lizard creatures like himself. Spider-Man readies his camera and attacks. Lizard again overpowers him but he easily evades the attacks. The webslinger gets ahold of the Recombinator but Lizard tackles him into the water. They fight until Spider-Man activates the device changing him back. The next day, Eddie brings Jameson to Connors' house intending to prove his story, but Curt answers hurting Eddie's reputation. Meanwhile, Peter gives Aunt May the money he got for the picture, but all she's worried about is the germs he got in the sewers.
