In the Marvel comics, Flash bonded with the Venom symbiote for a top-secret military operation and he is given a serum in case the alien costume overwhelms him. Agent Venom's appearance is similar to Spider-Man's black suit but bulky and tactical. He has the same powers as the previous user such as enhanced strength, agility, webbing, and shape-shifting.

Flash can transform into a hulking monster whenever he is angry or being overwhelmed by the symbiote giving him more power at the expense of losing control.
