Eugene "Flash" Thompson is a supporting character in the MCU Spider-Man films.

Why He Sucks

  1. He was changed from being a strong athletic caucasian jock and bully to from a spoiled, rich, Guatemalan rival nerd to Peter Parker.
  2. He is supposed to be a personal threat to Peter Parker but comes off as a minor annoyance to Peter
  3. He is a pointless character in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
  4. His actor Tony Revolori expressed interest to play Agent Venom, but just like Eddie Brock (2007), he isn’t bulky to play Agent Venom.
  5. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Brad Davis looks and acts more like Peter’s rival than he does.
  6. He is really annoying and egotistical, more so than his comic book counterpart and previous live-action iterations.
  7. He has very little reasons to pick on Peter and insult him on a daily basis.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He does get his comeuppance near the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming where Peter took his dad’s car and wrecks it.
  2. Despite not doing much in Spider-Man: From Home, he is less annoying.
