"I can't believe Spidey chose to tutor that kid Morales instead of me... But I'll show him... Agent Venom won't be benched!"
—Agent Venom[src]

Agent Venom is a Skill Champion. Being a Skill Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Science Champions, but is weak to Mutant Champions.


Eugene "Flash" Thompson, long-time fan of Spider-Man and friend of Peter Parker, thought his career was over after losing his legs fighting in the Iraq War. Desperate for another opportunity to help others, Flash enrolled in Project Rebirth and soon found himself bound to the alien Symbiote Venom. Now possessing many of the same powers as his wall-crawling hero, Flash covertly works for the U.S. government as the deadly Agent Venom.

Signature Ability

Klyntar Rage

  • Flash temporarily loses control of the Venom, gaining massive damage output until he's struck in combat.


  • At the beginning of the fight, and whenever Flash loses 50% of his Max Health, he temporarily loses control of the Venom symbiote, increasing Attack by X. This effect is lost once he is struck 5 times.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Agent Venom's ability to ignore a large portion of Evasion allows him a much stronger chance to deal with Evade-heavy opponents.
  • With his new Incinerate ability, Agent Venom can strip away a Champion's ability to block his attacks effectively, denying them much of their defensive capabilities.
  • With his strong Bleed and Incinerate effects, Agent Venom can bypass the Armor and Physical Resistance of Champions to take them down quickly.


  • Bleed Immune Champions deny Agent Venom much of his damage, and don't generally rely on debuff effects that Agent Venom can shrug off with his Tenacity effect.

Recommended Masteries

  • Dexterity
    • In order to keep the large damage output from Klyntar Rage, you'll have to dodge and block just right to avoid incoming attacks. Picking up this Mastery will help avoid those incoming attacks entirely and keep up Klyntar Rage longer.
  • Precision
    • As Klyntar Rage boosts Critical Damage while it's active, picking up this Mastery to boost Agent Venom's Critical Hit Rate will make the most of this ability and increase his damage output even further while the effect is active.
