HistoryEdit

Spider-ManEdit

Flash is a star high school football player and classmate of Peter Parker who mercilessly bullies Peter and, to some extent, Peter's friend Harry Osborn. He is depicted as the boyfriend of Mary Jane Watson, Peter's crush, at the start of the film. Later on in the film, Peter accidentally uses a web string to splash Flash with a lunch tray of food, a fight between the two subsequently breaks out in the school's hallway, which Peter wins, albeit accidentally, by discovering his new powers and sending Flash down with just one punch. Mary Jane later tells Peter that Flash was grateful to Peter for not hurting him more or giving him a black-eye for his graduation photo's. On graduation day he and Mary Jane break up after she refused an impromptue proposal.

Spider-Man 3Edit

Flash also makes a cameo at the end of Spider-Man 3 attending Harry's funeral.
