Lizards on a Hot Tin Roof!

This one follows the standard Spider-Man Cliffhanger Followup structure:
- Continue fight
- Bad guy(s) leaves for no good reason
- Spider-Man/Pete lead normal life
- Spidey and bad guy meet up again
- Spider-Man beats bad guy
It doesn’t help that Lizard stories tend to suck anyway, and that the Iguana is just an even lamer version of the Lizard. The one interesting part of the story was that Liz recognized his family and seemed to have a connection with them, but that wasn’t followed up at all. In fact, it was almost completely contradicted when the Lizard decided to team up with the Iguana.
