The above scene is from “Venom” issue 12 which came out this week. This current arc has been really good and I suggest everyone check it out.
Why is this scene of interest to us? Because Flash and Betty break up!
This breakup is significant in their history because it’s their first on panel breakup even though Betty is in off-panel land. Donovan Grant joked they couldn’t get her actress to film scenes for this issue. Betty and Flash’s three prior breakups all happened off panel.
I’m sure this is part of a larger plan to get them back together (especially with the marriage hints from the end for “Spider-Island-Hashtag”).
