Spider Quotes #51: Flash Thompson

Spider-Man: Redemption Part/Chapter 1: Yesterday.

I’ll tell ya…when I was in High School…I was the man. there was nobody else. Maybe I wasn’t the biggest brain on two feet…but out on the football field no one could touch me. The Babes all adored me…The Guys all wanted t’be  me.

 

I had it all, y’know?

 

So what happened…Tell me that? How’d I blink and find myself twenty-five years old…with a beer belly and getting paid garbage for working in a two-bit youth centre, for God’s sake? Been pounding the pavement all day…looking for a new job. But nobody wants me. I’ve got nothing to offer, the say.

 

I’d give anything t’be back in High School again…girls all over me…ragging on Puny Parker.

 

Parker! Now there’s one I’ve never been able t’figure out. Biggest nerd y’ever met. All he cared about was test tubes and his sick old aunt, and he ends up a big name photographer…married to a model. I mean, he’s got it all, y’know? An’ what’ve I got, huh?

 

My High School yearbook and a bunch o’dusty old football trophies…

I’ve loved Spider-Man, Spider-Girl and the Clone Saga since I were but a wee lad living in the United Kingdom. Glad to be here!
