Flash knew stuff about Jean Grey, yeah. The X-Men school was a place he sometimes fantasied about attending, like a kid might wish they could go to Hogwarts if it were real. One time they saved some people downtown from this dude with fire for hands and it seemed like they really cared about each other. Wanted to be a team, a family. As a kid from a household where his dad threw beer bottles at his head, the mutant alternative seemed nicer. Even after hearing all the stories about the team, the place.
He knew weird shit went down there and he knew about Jean Grey. The Phoenix. She had an alien friend riding on her back that sometimes wasn't such a good buddy, right? Flash could relate. Whatever bad shit she had done, what he had read in the papers about the X-Men getting out of control, he always took it was a grain of salt. Venom wasn't the Phoenix, but he could be bad shit.
Flash made sure to not think about any of that when he invited her to come find him. Instead, he loudly thought about burgers. The kind the high school snack shack used to make during games that he'd run out to scarf down after some big play. Greasy spoon diners where the burgers sizzled loudly on big metal grills. That time him and Deadpool found a McDonald's in Pakistan and they both hugged and cried and spent all their walking around money on big mac's. He even thought about Krabby Patty's, which he assumed tasted great if he were a fish or a salt water sponge.
He was sitting on the fountain. His Venom suit was on, but it looked like black pants, a jean jacket and a black shirt. There was no football player from hell vibe today. Flash didn't want to start with Hey, so this is Venom he's my friend from space and he lives on my back. Maybe after burgers, okay?
