You know how we found out Mary Jane Watson's father was an abusive alcoholic in the 1980s? We learned Flash Thompson's father was an abusive alcoholic in the 1990s.

FLASHBACK was a "minus" Marvel event in 1997. Most of the books were set before the Fantastic Four's rocket flight. The Spider-Man books (except UNTOLD TALES) were set when Peter Parker was a little boy.

In the posts for MS. MARVEL #21, I commented how teen superheroes get their own "Flash Thompson." But each creative team tries to make that "Flash Thompson" more than just "Flash Thompson."

Doctor Octopus: Year One was a miniseries that came out in 2004 to coincide with Spider-Man 2. In other hands this could have been a cynical cash-grab but I think its obvious that Zeb Wells went for something deeper.

So a little introduction: Carnage was one of the characters Bendis had no interest in doing. He changed his mind after reading an article about what not to do with science and the result is a character that is Carnage in appearance only. Your mileage will vary but in my opinion this storyline includes what may be the single worst thing Bendis has ever done on the title. See for yourself.

As a heads up there's some disturbing imagery here that's not commonly found in a Spider-Man comic.
