Biography

The Amazing Spider-Man

Before class started, Flash decided to pick on Peter by throwing a ball at him. Flash was picking on a student called Gordon when Peter Parker joined the crowd. Flash wanted Peter to take a photo but he refused and told Flash to stop, when Flash ignored him, Peter used his real name (Eugene) to try and get his attention. This just made Flash angry and he beat up Peter in front of the crowd until Gwen Stacy stopped him.

Once Peter got his "spider-like" abilities, he humiliates Flash during a basketball practice session as retribution.

Later, he starts acting nicer to Peter, starting by sympathizing with him due to the murder of his Uncle Ben, letting Peter take some of his anger out on him.

A lot later he attends Captain Stacy's funeral. Flash is more friendly with Peter (though he still calls him "Parker") and expresses admiration for his alter-ego "Spider-Man", as he is shown sporting a Spider-Man T-shirt.

Character traits

Flash is the most popular athlete in school and enjoys bullying nerds like Peter Parker. He's quite strong and enjoys fighting, but he's a coward too, vengeful and angry. However, upon hearing the death of Peter's uncle, he begins to show sympathy towards Parker. By the end of the film, there is some sign that he is beginning to become somewhat friendly with Parker while at the same time, he has become one of the many of Spider-Man's loyalists.
