He was a typical high school jock. He played football. He picked on nerds like Peter Parker. He also idolized the superhero Spider-Man.

Perhaps due to karma, there were many supervillain occurrences that seemd to negatively affect him.

He bullied Alex O'Hirn, who became Rhino and came after him. He realized his actions were negatively affecting others and vowed to change.

He imitated his idol by becoming the Scarlet Spider. He eventually came into contact with the Venom symbiote and became Agent Venom. His first fight was against Beetle.

Dr. Curt Connors found that unlike the previous hosts he could not remove the symbiote and it was permanently bonded to him. He was initially locked away in S.H.I.E.L.D., but Spider-Man convinced Nick Fury to let him be a hero. He later joined Spider-Man and other heroes in defeating Taskmaster and Green Goblin.

He later learned that Peter Parker is Spider-Man.


Flash was voiced first by Matt Lanter and later Logan Miller.
