    Everyone here called it. We knew his "death" was a cheap ultimately meaningless publicity stunt (e.g. no last consequences for Peter or his world) that would be undone with little fanfare in a couple of years tops, nothing more nothing less.

    Shouldn't have been done in the first place! It was just like Dan Slott trying to make one more major thing happen on his way out the door and what else to do but kill somebody who's been there since day 1? Just unnecessary in the larger scope, especially since the character found new viability and life as a superhero. Now we got another great relatable resurrection, just like real life, love my everyman Spidey world where all his friends continuously die and come back to life lol.

    Yep...we all knew it was coming...my worry was always just the how. I think Symbiots/Klyn'tar are over done. I think they made them too powerful/versatile(need to fly...grow wings, need to fight Juggernaut...grow the size and have matching strength). And I think Flash deserves better than playing musical Symbiotes/identities...he should have his own super hero identity.

    Flash is just a corporal? He's a war vet of the Sin Cong conflict. He should at least be a sergeant.

    So given the state we saw his body in in Last Remains, I hope that Anti-Venom can regenerate the flesh on his body because he was a skeleton.

    Im actually very curious of a Peter and Flash reunion, I have a feeling he will remember finding out Peter secret in 800 before dying. and I'm also curious about his reaction to his other best friend Harry being Kindred, Peter could open up about it.

    I took a look at the page and it looks like it could be a merger of symbiote and flesh judging by how some of the flesh on the hand appears to be amorphous.

    Is there even a point to killing off characters anymore when it’s always undone a couple years later? There absolutely zero emotional weight attached to any comic death nowadays thanks to this silly dead/alive revolving door.

    Marvel officially has been showing images of Flash as Anti-Venom for their upcoming symbiote event so the cat is out of the bag.

    I will never understand the rationale behind killing him off to begin with. It was transparently pointing during the whole 10 issue leadup to #800 he would die and all it did was prevent other writers from getting to use him for a few years. Last minute big development to cap off the run and "sell" the danger. And I like that story. Agent Venom pretty much revitalized the Venom character in comics, gave Flash the spotlight, and he was well liked in the role (I'm not the biggest fan of more people from Peter's friend circle getting powers but it was well done so I can't fault it). I think Dan Slott even wrote the first Agent Venom appearance. Now it's just another weird thing where death is but a speed-bump and the relatable grounded Spidey supporting characters have almost all died and come back to life now.

    When Flash died in 2018 he hadn't been used well in like 5 years.

    That was when his original Venom series ended, right?

    The Venom Spaceknight stuff wasn't great and I didn't care for most of Bunn's Venom after Remender left, so naturally the course of action to take is to just kill him!
