Eugene "Flash" Thompson (of Earth-96283) is a fictional character appearing Sam Raimi's Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3. He is portrayed by Joe Manganiello


In Spider-Man, Flash is a school jock who bullies Peter and sometimes Peter's best friend Harry Osborn

He is first seen in the beginning of the film, sitting next to his girlfriend Mary Jane. When Peter approached and entered the school bus, Flash nods to his crony, who takes that as his cue and humiliates Peter by tripping him. He also attends the high school trip to a lab facility, where he and his cronies knock Peter every time he attempts to take a photo.

Later at school, Peter's new superhuman strength and powers enhanced by a genetic spider gets out of control in the cafeteria, where he accidentally uses a lunch tray to unintentionally throw at Flash, who is behind him. Flash initially looks puzzled as he watches Peter leave the cafeteria and says "Parker?"

Soon, Flash takes what happened to him as a humiliation of sorts. He then confronts Peter in the school hallway, engaging a fight. However, Peter avoids Flash's blows, and Flash is defeated from a punch by Peter.

Later, after Mary Jane gets into a fight with her parents, she talks to Peter Parker as he takes out the trash, but Flash arrives in his new car, which distracts her and she runs away from Peter and gets into Flash's car; they drive away, leaving Peter alone.

Flash is later seen at the graduation, encountering Mary Jane in the moment after the graduation. Mary Jane breaks up with Flash, telling him she doesn't want to be with him anymore before handing him his ring. He replies with "You know what? Whatever. Your loss" before walking away.
