PERSONALITY AND ABILITIES
Eugene had some hard time in life before coming Agent Venom. He a failed marriage with Sha-Shan and then returned to the battlefield in the war in Iraq, and lost his legs after saving his partner from enemy forces.
He became the new Venom when he was enlisted as a part of Project Rebirth 2.0. Flash was bonded with the symbiote, recently acquired by the U.S. government after Mac Gargan's arrest after the Siege of Asgard. While bonded, Flash was able to reproduce his legs and had powers comparable to Spider-Man.
After being recommended by Captain America to stay far away from Spider Man, Flash left to settle matters in Philadelphia, satisfied that the Avengers were on the case. He also gained honorary membership on the team.
After Iron Man time with Guardians of the Galaxy he long with Captain America seeking to maintain a connection with the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Avengers placed Flash long with (Klyntar Symbiote) on the team as their new envoy.
When brought into space as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the symbiote was able to overcome the drugs suppressing it and take over Flash, lashing out in rage and confusion. After being reconnected to the Klyntar hive mind, the symbiote's bloodlust was purged, restoring it to its initial benign state. Following this, the Venom symbiote was docile and subservient to Flash, though he expressed concern that his own hot-headedness could have adverse affects on it. Speaking independently, the symbiote admits to preferring Flash as a host,
POWER & ABILITIES
Black Symbiotic Costume: The Venom symbiote grants Flash the following powers:
Accelerated Healing Factor
Immunity to Spider-Man's Spider-Sense
Venom's Memory from previous hosts
Skilled Marksman: Flash has been trained in sharpshooting and marksmanship from the U.S. Army.
Skilled Combatant:Due to formal training as a boxer and a soldier, Flash is an exceptional combatant and easily combines his abilities with the use of symbiote powers.
Sonic and Heat: The Venom symbiote, like all others of its kind, is extremely vulnerable to heat and sonic based attacks. They can cause the symbiote physical pain and discomfort, where as "more powerful" attacks might be completely ineffective.
Alcoholism: Flash had been known to have a drinking problem.
Symbiote dependency: Because of sustained bonding with the symbiote and the effects of the drugs he uses to keep it in control, Flash's biology was modified to the point he depends on the symbiote to live. If Flash doesn't possesses the symbiote for a prolonged period of time, he could die. This issue was apparently removed by the Klyntar hive-mind, as he has spent prolonged periods separated from the Venom symbiote without any adverse effects
He lost his legs from the knees down in the Iraq war and was confined to a wheelchair afterwards. While wearing the Venom symbiote, Flash was able to regenerate his legs. Was not a problem after Flash obtained robotic prosthesis, but he did get rid of them. 803 later constructed a pair of prosthetics for Flash to use while not wearing the symbiote.
