    Amazing Spider-Man #654 & 654.1 - First appearance as Venom

    Venom by Rick Remender (#1-22) & Cullen Bunn (#23-42)
    Venom: Space Knight by Robbie Thompson (#1-13)

    Secret Avengers by Rick Remender
    Thunderbolts by Daniel Way, Charles Soule, & Ben Acker and Ben Blacker

    Amazing Spider-Man/Venom: Venom Inc. - Flash becomes Agent Anti-Venom
    Amazing Spider-Man #800 "Go Down Swinging - Flash's death

    One of my all-time favorite developments from the last decade.

    Hopefully, Flash/Agent Venom will return soon.

    Happy 2020 to the Best Version of Venom, IMO. Flash buddy you deserved better.

    Would love Flash to come back...soon. But do not give him a symbiote or Spider-Man related power set. Give him a super soldier type power set and an original identity.

    Original identity would be cool. But if that isn't the case, Agent Venom or Agent Anti Venom works fine for me

    Just seems lazy to me for them to bring him back as what he was before.

    That's understandable. He's my favorite version of Venom and the most interesting relationship with the symbiote in my opinion. Would another symbiote be too cliche or played out? Another spider type character? Or something completely different.

    Like I said above..make him a super soldier...maybe the 50s Cap variant that gave low level super strength.

    I agree, but I kind of hate when they bring back characters from a heroic and meaningful death. I was thinking we might see a version of Agent Venom in the future with Eddie Brock; maybe the symbiote retained Flash's memories and style and could impose it on whatever host it chooses (like getting Eddie out of a jam). Maybe the government captures him and he makes a deal to work for them like Flash did.

    I said something like this in an old Flash thread...Thunderbolt Ross decided he needed his own super operative. He used the Jackal's New-U cloning tech to make a new Flash and then stabilized his cells with a super soldier variant. It took multiple attempts and cost a ton of money....so they can not just do it whenever. Wiped his memories back to losing his legs and scarred Flash's legs so it looks like he had a double leg transplant. Whoever replaced Ross decided to use Flash and on a mission to NYC he encounters Spider-Man and it causes the memory wipe to start falling apart.
