Physical appearance

Flash Thompson is a young Caucasian teenage boy who has a muscular build, blonde hair and green eyes. He wears his school's football uniform, with a Spider-Man shirt underneath tucked inside his light blue pants, and a black belt with a bronze clasp.


Flash is a jock at Midtown High School. He likes to bully weak people and put them in lockers once. He is a major fan of Spider-Man, overreacting after he sees him. Flash can get easily afraid and hides behind other people or the targets, just as Flash was scared of the Venom symbiote and used Peter as a human shield, until he gets over it under Spider-Man and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s guidance.

Peter Parker/Spider-Man

Flash has known Peter at a very young age and always was his bully. Until the present Flash has always put Peter in a locker in their early high school days. He doesn't know that Peter Parker is Spider-Man, whom he admires.
