Real Name: Unrevealed
Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Microverse) Tropica resident (fairy race)
Group Membership: Enigma Force (Micronauts by another name; Bug, Marionette/Mari, Quark, Arcturus Rann, Redeemer)
Affiliations: Enigma Force;
while she correctly recognized how dangerous the symbiotes were to the Microverse, she allied Venom (Flash Thompson) -- and to a lesser degree the Scarlet Spider (Kaine) -- per the instructions of the Redeemer;
Enemies: Carnage (Cletus Kasady), Klyntar/symbiotes, Klyntar/symbiote clones, Marquis Radu and his forces, others unspecified;
possibly Baron Karza (if she didn't oppose him with the Enigma Force, she likely still felt his tyranny on Tropica);
she was strongly opposed to the presence of Venom (Flash Thompson) in the Microverse;
Known Relatives: None
Aliases: "The faerie," "Sugarplum fairy"
Base of Operations: Homeworld Microship Endeavor, mobile throughout the Microverse;
formerly Tropica, Homeworld, Microverse
First Appearance: Scarlet Spider II#10 (December 2012)
Powers/Abilities: Tiny in size, Flare can fly
at great speeds, striking larger components with significant force
and/or her energies. When facing the Klyntar/symbiote clones, at least,
she struck with energy bursts rather than contact.
While her speeds are unrevealed, she can zip around and assault multiple beings while others are facing a single foe.
Flare typically emits some sort of sonic energy, which she can focus as a calming song, or as a burst of sonic energy.
It would appear that when her energies are neutralized, she is rendered virtually inert.
It is unrevealed whether Flare is/was a Fireflyte and is/was paired into existence with one of the Devils of Tropica.
Flare is apparently nude.
Height: Unrevealed (She
appeared to be perhaps 6" (15.25 cm) tall compared to the relative
height of Venom (Flash Thompson) in the Microverse and to the rest of
her team; as far as the confirmed stories, she has not appeared in
Earth's universe/dimension, but based on previous characters' relative
size when appearing in Earth's dimension, if she appeared at the same
shrunken 6' to 6" ratio, she would be about 0.5" (1.25 cm); however,
based on the method of transport, Microverse inhabitants have sometimes
maintained a relative height proportional to humanity)
Weight: Unrevealed (based on the the above height, she would be around 1.3 ounces (37 grams) in the Microverse; if appearing in Earth's universe at the 1/12 proportional height, she would be .00075 ounces (46.88 mg))
Eyes: Apparently pink/magenta
Hair: Pink/magenta and/or white/gray (varied between appearances)
Skin: Pink and/or gray
(Venom II#27 (fb) - BTS) - Marquis Radu apparently battled the Enigma Force team on multiple occasions, often at the most inopportune time.
(Scarlet Spider II#11 (fb) - BTS) - Seeking to become God of the Microverse, Radu considered that in order to be the new god, the old god (the Enigma Force) had to die.As killing the old god was against his religion, Radu resolved to summon a symbiote to the Microverse to destroy the Enigma Force.
(Minimum Carnage Omega#1 (fb) - BTS) - Flare and the
Enigma Force returned to the Endeavor alongside Venom and the Scarlet
(Minimum Carnage Omega#1 - BTS) - Under
the guidance of the Redeemer, the Enigma Force team flew the
Endeavor as close to the Spacewall as possible. Mari
gave Venom and Scarlet Spider sonic weapons to use against Carnage, and
Flare noted that if they were thinking of visiting the Microverse
again, they should just use the weapons on themselves. The Redeemer
then explained how
Venom's symbiote could bring he, Scarlet Spider and Katy Kiernan back
to Earth, which it then did.
Comments: Created by Christopher Yost, Khoi Pham, Reilly Brown, Tom Palmer, and Chris Sotomayor.
It seems to me like Flare and Quark were replacements for Fireflyte and Huntarr, as if they couldn't decide whether they could use those characters or not. Flare is pretty clearly a native of Tropica, so she's likely from Fireflyte's race.
Regardlessly, Flare and Quark
first appeared in October 10, 2012 in two comics simultaneously.
Scarlet Spider II#10 showed up the same day as Marvel Universe
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes I#7, which covered the Reality-8096
version of the characters...the series was based on the Avengers:
Earth's Mighiest Heroes cartoon, although the "Microns" did not appear
in the cartoon, only the comic adaptation.
