'Gwen Stacy' #1: All the Gwens We've Ever Loved
You heard the conversation on This Week in Marvel, now read about all the different versions of Gwen Stacy!
Just one universe over from the main one, on Earth-617, a Gwen debuted in SPIDER-GWEN #29 whose life was going along much like her 616 counterpart's until she met Spider-Gwen, who had bonded with the Earth-65 version of Venom. Having helped her other self return home, 617 Gwen changed her whole life. Instead of dying at the hands of the Green Goblin, she bonded with her own symbiote and become an adventuring science-detective. She even joined a Council of Spider-Women who remain unseen even by the Watchers. "It's hard to go wrong with a Gwen," Lowe said.
Another Gwen Who Lived can be found in the pages of WHAT IF #24. In that reality, Spidey jumped down to get her instead of using his webbing and saved her life! The pair even got married, but before supposedly turning over a new leaf, the Green Goblin had sent Spider-Man's secret identity to J. Jonah Jameson. The Daily Bugle editor burst into the ceremony with police officers looking to arrest the groom! He ran off and the issue ends with Parker wondering what he should do as the most wanted man in New York City! "It is absolutely heartbreaking," Lowe said. "We can't have nice things because that would be boring."
