Agent Venom alias Eugene “Flash” Thompson, first appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man” #654. Once a bully to Peter Parker, Flash underwent a remarkable transformation. After joining the United States Army and serving overseas, Thompson suffered life-altering injuries while shielding his fellow soldiers during a shooting incident. In a courageous turn of events, he signed up for Project Rebirth 2.0 and bonded with the Venom symbiote, becoming a super-soldier for the U.S. military. As Agent Venom, Flash regained the ability to walk, as his legs regrew in his Venom form.
Throughout his journey, Agent Venom played significant roles in various superteams, including the Secret Avengers, Thunderbolts, and the Guardians of the Galaxy. In “Venom: Space Knight,” he evolved into an Agent of the Cosmos, protecting the universe with a brand-new look.
Andi Benton: The Evolution from Mania to Scream
Andi Benton’s path to becoming Mania was set in motion by Agent Venom’s actions. After a harrowing attack by Jack O’Lantern and the tragic loss of her father, Andi found herself on the brink of death. Flash selflessly used a portion of his symbiote to save her life. However, this act transferred the demonic Hell-Mark to Andi, transforming her into the symbiote-infused hero known as Mania.
