> And instead of saying Pete has no more friends, Quesada and JMS should recognize that Flash Thompson had become Peter's friend. Instead, in the mania for resetting the clock to 1962, Flash inexplicably became a bully again.

It's not inexplicable. It's because of the brain damage Flash suffered at the hands of the Goblin a few years back. Flash was left in a vegetative state, and when he came out of it, he had amnesia and only remembered Peter from way back in high school.

As I understand it, Peter David did it because he wanted to set off a certain dynamic between Peter and Flash in the wake of Peter revealing his secret identity to the world. After that happened, Peter and Flash would start to become friends, but why is that happening, exactly? Is Flash genuinely trying to become Peter's friend, or is he only doing it because Peter is his idol, Spider-Man? It's pretty interesting stuff.

Flash started acting like a jerk toward Peter well before that. I believe it was a symptom of the Byrne relaunch.
















"The grassroots support from the SG message board has been fantastic. Those fans have managed to keep Spider-Girl alive. They never gave up on the title. Not even when Marvel canceled it and told me there was no hope of ever bringing it back. Spider-Girl lives because of her fans!"
