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 jock and bully to a spoiled, rich 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 barely does anything in Spider-Man: Far From Home aside from a running gag revolving around him streaming on Instagram.
  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, making his role even more pointless.
  6. His lines are very inappropriate, they get old very fast and will get you on your last nerve.
  7. He is really annoying and egotistical, even more so than his comic book counterpart and previous live-action iterations.
  8. He has very little reason to pick on and insult Peter on a daily basis.
  9. He is an “alpha bastard” for being popular for his parties and tormenting Peter and Ned.

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. Tony Revolori does a fine job in the role.
  3. Despite not doing much in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he is less annoying.
    • He also improves a little in No Way Home (despite getting very little screen time), as he's seen trying way too hard to be Peter Parker's friend after learning his identity, which Parker and his friends quickly pick up on as being a ruse.
  4. His final scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home implies that his parents don't pay attention to him, which may be a reason for which why he was a spoiled brat.
