In another reality, it was Gwen Stacy, not Peter Parker, who became a spider-powered superhero. Referred to as “Spider-Gwen,” this character first appeared as a supporting player in the Spider-Verse event that saw numerous spider-characters teaming up from across the Marvel multiverse to battle the evil Inheritors, but so popular was this Spider-Woman that she went on to star in her own comic series and play a larger role across the Marvel landscape.
With Spider-Gwen having already made her way to video games and television, the last box to check is the big screen, which will happen when she appears in December’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a loose adaptation of the same comic where she first appeared that stars Spider-Man Miles Morales. While you’re waiting for that film to hit, check out these essential Spider-Gwen reads.
