Powers & Abilities

Flash testing his new powers.
All of the powers that Flash uses come from the Venom Symbiote and are not his own. While bonded it grants him a variety of powers (most copied from Spider-Man) which include:
  • Superhuman Strength:
  • Superhuman Durability:
  • Superhuman Stamina: Venom is also capable of surviving in harmful areas for long periods of time such as underwater or in toxic gases, the symbiote filtering breathable air to the host.
  • Accelerated Healing Factor: The symbiote is capable of healing injuries in the host at a faster rate than normal human healing allows. The symbiote is also capable of healing injuries and illnesses that current human medical care cannot such as cancer.
  • Genetic Memory:
  • Offspring Detection: The symbiote is capable of psychically detecting its offspring, however with effort this ability can be blocked.
  • Wall-Crawling: The alien costume replicates Spider-Man’s ability to cling to walls by controlling the flux of inter-atomic attraction between molecular boundary layers.
  • Webbing Generation:

  • Constituent-Matter Generation:

  • Constituent-Matter Manipulation: The Venom Symbiote has recently developed this new ability. Venom can morph sections of his body, such as his hands or feet, into spikes, blades, axes or a shield.
  • ESP (Spider-Sense):

  • Immunity to Spider-Man's Spider Sense: Due to Spider-Man being a host to the symbiote, Venom is able to bypass Spider-Man's spider-sense. As such, Venom is capable of attacking Spider-Man without alerting him.
  • Camouflage Capabilities: The symbiote is capable of mimicking the appearance of any form of clothing, camouflaging with its surroundings, and even mimicking other people.
  • Stretching and deforming: Although it's wide known that the Symbiote can stretch and deform itself, recently it was able to perform this ability while bonded to Flash.


  • Skilled Marksman: Flash has been trained in sharpshooting and marksmanship by the U.S. Army.
  • Skilled Combatant: Due to his formal training as a boxer and a soldier, Flash is an exceptional combatant.


  • Flash had been known to have a drinking problem.
  • Flash lost his legs from the knees down in the Iraq war and was confined to a wheelchair afterwards. While wearing the Venom Symbiote, Flash was able to regenerate his legs.
  • While Flash is wearing the Venom Symbiote, Flash inherits its weakness to loud sounds and fire. Additionally Flash can not remain bonded to the Venom Symbiote for more than 48 hours without risking losing control to the Symbiote.
