Marissa had a rough life from her family experiencing mistreatment and abuse at the hands of the mob. Extortion , Assaulting , Loan sharking etc. But over the years she began to have a normal, more happier life until the massacre at Phelcorp where the Lizard (Curt Connors) Murdered everyone in the building , raped Marissa , and cannibalized her family.
With all this said Marissa would develop a different outlook on life , whereby she comes to believe that to survive in a world where criminals , monsters and superpowered beings like the Lizard exist , she must take whatever she can to survive and if that becomes the very monster who ruined her life so be it.
After months and months of testing she causes an experiment which ultimately transforms her into the Lizard , but retains her intelligence and uses it to carve out territory for herself as the city as a minor crime lord.
This would be a refreshing departure from the same old Jekyll/Hyde Lizard stories seen an infinitum of. Allowing for new potential with the lizard name and in the unsalvageable remains of the lizard in the wake of Shed. Without Curta mortality , the Lizard is just a monster who’s discovering the joys of humanity. But a superpowered mutant which combines the mad science stories of Spider-Man with the street crime stories. Now that presents new possibilities.
Sebastian “Vendetta#8221; Voller An elderly former NY gangster who after losing his empire in the early 1970s, disappeared from NY. Falling into depression and drug addiction, Voller attempts to take his own life only to be saved by an unknown entity who trains Voller to become an able fighter and thinker.
He lost an arm during a training exercise and is fitted with a steel plated prosthetic, capable of crushing bone in seconds. With his body and mind substantially improved, Voller turns on his teacher and returns to Gotham – determined to regain his criminal empire.
Despite his age, Voller has the health of a much younger man, attributed to deep meditation and a distain for processed food and meat. He claims that he had cancer but was able to eliminate the tumour through thought alone. He shows an instant dislike to Spider-Man upon his return to NY – seeing him as an obstacle to his plans and as a symbol of what NY has become.
Returning to the city, Voller takes over a small time gangster's racket after crushing his throat with his steel plated arm. Voller teaches his new thugs and goons some of the techniques he was taught and thus becomes a small but powerful new crime syndicate in Ny. Voller has his eye on the Kingpin , the established head of NY's most powerful family, as well as targeting those who took him down during his first run in NY . He is quickly given the name “Vendetta#8221; by Gotham reporters.
He discovers that an illegitimate son, Jacob, conceived before leaving NY is now a high ranking official at the NYPD. Voller kidnaps Jacob and attempts to brainwash him but to no avail. Realising Jacob's will is too strong, he holds Jacob to ransom which is paid for by Kasper Cole despite Spider-Man's plea. Voller releases Jacob but not before cutting his arm off.
Rising slowly through the cities criminal families, Voller begins experiencing the onset of Dementia. Becoming increasingly erratic, he begins to become confused with time – often believing he is the younger man during his original run in NY. During one of these episodes, he leaves his secure compound and visits a favourite restaurant with no protection which alerts a number of enemies. Spider-Man, who has been observing Voller's behaviour, dare inadvertently prevents an assassination by spotting Bullseye who had been sent to kill Vendetta by the Kingpin. While Spider-Man is battling Bullseye , Jacob arrives at the restaurant, fitted with his very own steel plated arm and crushes his fathers throat leaving him unable to speak before abducting him.
Some months later, Eric and Voller reappear, the latter now an invalid. Jacob claims he has his fathers full blessing to take over the empire. There are questions regarding the relationship between the two – New York's underworld believing that Jacob tortured his own father to hand over the reigns and Spider-Man's belief that Voller is really the one in control.
After investigating, Spider-Man suspects that Voller is an alias and that he is in fact the same gangster that was prominent in NY during the 1920's. Spider-Man deduces that the unknown entity who trained Vendetta possibly had access to the Blood of the Beast and was perhaps a member of the Hand, a group Daredevil encountered frequently. While not confirmed, Spider-man begins to find evidence for Hand splinter groups across the world.
