- He's not a jock

- He's not athletic at all, visibly shorter than Peter & skinny

- He's not even a bully. He has a friendly, competitive rivalry relationship with Peter & Holland himself said he's not a fricking bully.

What gives? The dude is not Flash in any way. Why couldn't he just be an original character (Manuel anybody) just doesn't make sense to me.
I wasn't aware of that last part.

If Flash isn't even a bully in this, and more of a friendly rival, then what's the frickin' point of even using the character.

I mean, seriously. I'm this close to being done with this film. Every little bit of info that comes out has only served to make me less interested.
