(Amazing Spider-Man I#327 (fb) - BTS) - Blaze met Flash Thompson shortly after he broke up with his former girlfriend Sambouka. Impressed with the prize fighter's muscles and great strength, she quickly became his biggest fans. Flash was also taken with Blaze and they soon started dating.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#327) - Blaze watched Flash train for his upcoming match, sparring with another boxer in the ring. She seemed enthralled by her big, shirtless boyfriend and didn't even notice Peter and Mary Jane Parker come in to visit with Thompson. After Flash knocked his sparring partner for a loop, Blaze was elated and fawned over him. Flash assured Peter that with his right hook and a gal like Blaze at his side, he was set to win the fight. Flash then took off for a shower, telling Blaze he'd take her to a matinee afterwards. As soon as Flash was gone, Blaze chatted up Peter, asking him if he had any plans after the matinee. Mary Jane then stepped in, telling "cupcake" Blaze off in no uncertain terms. As the Parkers left, openly worrying about Flash's continued questionable taste in women, Blaze was seen flirting with Flash's sparring partner who seemed into her avances.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#328 - BTS) - Flash and Blaze broke up.

Blaze was part of a running gag involving Flash Thompson's terrible luck with (and taste in) women David Michelinie introduced when he was on Amazing Spider-Man. For a few issues, poor Flash would introduce Peter and Mary Jane to the newest love of his life, all women who were clearly a terrible match for him but the love struck Flash was always blind to their obvious faults. None of the women stuck around for more than an issue and the revolving door of love interests seemed an innocent gag until Flash showed up with Felicia Hardy in #329.
