Flash Thompson is a star football player at Peter Parker's school. Flash would constantly bully Peter Parker but he also greatly admires the hero Spider-Man, who is the alter ego of Parker. After graduation, Flash joins the Army and gains experience in combat which leads to his problem with alcoholism. Later on in the series, Flash and Peter become friends.
