Imagine opening your door to see Tom standing in the rain. You were supposed to have a date with him this afternoon, but you cancelled last minute, and he came to find out why. You invite him inside, but he refuses to come in until you tell him why you stood him up. You pause for a moment, finding your words, when lightning strikes nearby, jolting you back to reality. You tell him you were worried you’d have nothing interesting to talk about - you’re a rather shy person and going out with him made you nervous beyond belief. He steps up to the door as you step aside to let him in, and says, “I can do all the talking if you like. Or we don’t have to talk at all.” He takes your face in his hands, tilting your head up to meet his before settling his soft, wet lips on yours.
So…the whole reason why Flash and Venom are separated is because the symbiote was hurt and freaked out? Despite their close bond, despite all the character development, despite everything we’ve seen them go through the past couple of years…it gets hit with a sonic blast and decides “Fuck this, I’m done”?
I’ve been saying since this series started that Flash has felt like nothing more than an after thought. #150 confirmed it.
