New Venom's Secret Identity Revealed

March is a new Venom ongoing series by Rick Remender and Tony Moore
If you would like to know the identity of Venom keep reading after the page break.
The new Venom is Flash Thompson, solid bro to Peter Parker, love interest of Betty Brant, and patriotic war hero. We knew from previous announcements that the new Venom would be a government operative, but most people's money was on John Jameson, son of Spider-Man enemy J. Jonah Jameson and renowned astronaut/soldier/assorted-military-connections-as-plot-necessitates/werewolf. But Flash works just as well, if not better. The guy lost his legs in Iraq and was inspired by Spider-Man not to get too gloomy about it. Unfortunately for Flash, the Venom symbiote has a way of playing off of its host's temper - and he's got one.
