    I have issues with the demon sub-plot, actually. The symbiote is currently stoned out of its mind, so the demon will apparently be acting as the devil on Flash's shoulder, subtly urging him to the dark side. Uh...isn't that what the symbiote would be doing if it weren't stoned? This seems a bit redundant.

    Not really where it's going...

    One thing I think often gets lost in the mix is that the symbiote is capable of learning good and evil, even sacrificing itself for Peter Parker at one point.

    I like the idea that Flash will struggle with taking the symibote in as a 'partner,' because this is something that hasn't been addressed. It wasn't until the cartoon and the third Spider-Man film that the symbiote came to represent only inner darkness.

    Maybe the Demon will make that apparent...

    Then I apologize; that was the impression that I got from the article, and it wouldn't have been a development I was thrilled with if it was. I'm quite happy to be speculating incorrectly in this case.

    That's intentional. Rather than having an angel figure and a devil figure, he has two devil figures.
