History: Eugene Thompson, "Flash" to most of his friends and acquaintances, was the local high school sports star and resident bully. As a child in elementary school, he was friends with Peter Parker, but later became Peter's school nemesis until their senior year. Part of the hostility he exhibited towards Peter was peer pressure – as a "jock", he felt obligated to pick on the "nerds" like Pete. Another part of the hostility was because of a rumor about his nickname – Pete once joked that it wasn't because of Flash's speed as a kid, with implications that greatly embarrassed Flash.

Since graduating high school, Flash has matured greatly. He is currently attending Empire State University on sports scholarships, and has actually renewed his friendship with Pete. Flash is also a fan of Spider-Man's, and although unaware that Pete and Spidey are the same person, has occasionally worn a spare Spider-Man outfit when Spidey and Pete needed to be seen at the same time or when proving that it could be anyone underneath the mask. To his chagrin, some of the folks at ESU are starting to think that Flash is Spidey.

Role-Playing Notes:

Flash is basically a good man who feels he was "forced" to become the stereotypical bullying jock during high school. Now that he's in college, he feels he's able to be the person he is rather than the person his friends expect him to be. He's surprising himself greatly. He comes off as arrogant and condescending at times, due to habits picked up during high school, but his actions have spoken of an inner nobility that's laid buried until recently. Even Peter is impressed with his old school nemesis.
