Quote1 All my life, I wanted people to look up to me. Sports star, big man on campus, captain of the football team. But what was I, really? What am I, really? A bully. A killer. I'm no hero but maybe, for once in my lousy life... I can stop thinking about who I want to love me... and who I hate. I can finally stop being scared I'm not good enough. Because I'm not. I'm not a hero. But if I try long enough and hard enough and make amends... maybe someday I might get to be a good guy. Quote2

• What if Peter Parker wasn’t the one bitten by the radioactive spider?

• What if that person was an egotistical bully who was only interested in taking care of himself?

• What if… FLASH THOMPSON became Spider-Man?


The sequence of Spider-Man being trapped under rubble and struggling to get free is an explicit homage to Amazing Spider-Man #33.
