Spider-Verse, as an event, is giving fans so much cool stuff. We’ve seen a Logan-tutored web-head and a Superior Spider-Man that hails from 2099, and now we get Gwen Stacy as a Spider all her own.
Fan of course, know that Stacey was Peter Parker’s gal for years before meeting her end at the hands of the Green Goblin years ago. In this alternate reality though, she was bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Pete and became Spider-Woman.
It looks like she’s got a pretty awesome little storyline and history as well, before the entrance of Morlun and his insane quest to step on every Spider in the multiverse. Whether she’ll survive the encounter or not, we don’t know, but if she does I’m pretty sure Spidey fans wouldn’t mind seeing a lot more of her down the road.
