The Neogenic Recombinator is a device designed at Empire State University that can alter the genetic structure of its targets. It was responsible for the creation of Spider-Man, Lizard, Scorpion, and Michael Morbius' vampire state.
The Neogenic Recombinator was designed by Dr. Farley Stillwell and built at Empire State University.
One day, a group of high school students came to ESU for a demonstration. A spider dropped into the beam and became radioactive. It bit student Peter Parker and gave him superpowers.
When Spider-Man's mutation continued to evolve, he sought Connors' help. Connors used the Recombinator to give him treatments. However, it was stolen by Vulture. Connors used the Recombinator to cure Spider-Man and give it to Vulture.
The recombinator was created for the series.
In the Comics
Connors just used a reptilian-based serum to become Lizard.
The spider that bit Peter Parker was radioactive from a nuclear waste demonstration that he attended.
Gargan was given simply a scorpion-based serum to become Scorpion.
Morbius suffered from a rare blood disease for which he used a serum, one he developed as a biochemist, using vampire bats and electroshocks that turned him into a pseudo-vampire.
