Alright, people, let's start at the beginning one last time. My name is Gwen Stacy. I was bitten by a radioactive spider. And for the last two years, I've been the one and only Spider-Woman. You guys know the rest. I joined a band, saved my dad. I couldn't save my best friend, Peter Parker. So now I save everyone else. And I don't do friends anymore, just to avoid any distractions. And one day, this weird thing happened. And I mean, like, really weird. I was blown into last week, literally. I landed in New York, but not my New York. My Spider-Sense told me to head to Visions Academy. Wasn't sure why until I met you.

Biography

Gwen Stacy was bitten by a radioctive spider and became a super-heroine. One of her deeds as such was saving her own father. She couldn't, however, save her best friend, Peter Parker, which led her to try to not do friends anymore to avoid distractions and tragedy's as Peter's, and always tries her best to save other people, to make sure no one will go through what she went through. One day she was, accidentally, pulled out of her reality by a dimensional portal, created by the collider created by Doctor Octopus to the Kingpin. After landing in New York, she was guided by her Spider-sense to the Visions Academy school, just to meet Miles Morales, who also had the spider physiology. She then saved both Miles and Peter B. Parker from Doctor Octopus, and they went to that reality's Peter Parker's Aunt May's house, where they met Peni Parker, Spider-Man Noir and Spider-Ham. Aunt May's house is attacked by a bunch of supervillains, and the spiders fought them. During the fight, Miles's uncle, Aaron Davis, who was a supervillain named Prowler, was killed, and that let Miles sad. Gwen and the other spiders decided that Miles was not ready to be a Spider-Man and help them destroying Kingpin's collider, and they let Miles webbed up in his chair at his college's room. She, disguised at a Spider-Man waitress along with the other spiders, infiltrated in Kingpin's laboratory, and tried to use Peni's pendrive to shut down the collider. They were discovered and attacked, however, and Kingpin successfully activated his collider. Fighting in the middle of a bunch of different objects coming from different dimensions, she, along with Peter B. Parker, discovered that Miles freed himself and was ready to fight side by side with them. She was the fourth of the spiders to jump in the collider so she would come back to her home. After saying goodbye to Miles and Peter, she jumped in the collider's ray, that for a second got the neon style from Gwen's universe. She is seen in her universe before the credits, seeing a picture of her and Miles together, thinking on her friend.

What Makes her Pure Good?

  • She saved her father from dying, and constantly battle villains in her dimension to protect her New York.
  • She was extremely sad when her dimension's Peter Parker died, and this served as an incentive to her to always try to save other people.
  • She saved Peter B. Parker and Miles from Doc Ock.
  • Despite her eventually making new friends, she is friendly towards all of the spider people, and her experiences with them inspires Gwen to start trying making friends again.
  • Despite getting a little bit mad at Miles for damaging her hair, she wasn't being exaggerated, as he really messed up with her hair seriously, and eventually accepts and likes her hair that way.
  • When she was harsh to Miles, like the other spiders during his training, she was just trying to make him reach his full potential, and she just accepted to let him webbed up in his room for his safety.
  • She argues with Peter B. Parker and the other spiders about who should go back home and who should stay to shut down the collider, showing that she puts the other safety above her own, despite barely knowing the other spiders.
  • She stands out in the Admirable Standard of the movie, compared to Peni, Noir and Ham, as she saved Miles from Doc Ock, and was very important to Miles personal growth, making her vital to stop Kingpin.
  • In spite of having a serious contrast, she always keeps the story lighthearted.
