SPIDER-GWEN featured on ‘JEOPARDY!’

The category was "Comics & Graphic Novels" and the clue the Spectacular Spider-Gwen!

It's no surprise that the Marvel Universe gets featured on 'JEOPARDY!' from time to time. Last year, during James Holzhauer's epic run we even saw Marvel themed clues pop up numerous times. But, every time it happens, we can't help but get excited and 'JEOPARDY!' kicked off the new year with an entire category titled "Comics & Graphic Novels" and sure enough, one of the clues was about Marvel Comics!

Here's the clue...did you get it right?

 

Spider-Gwen on Jeopardy

Obviously, the answers is nothing other than the Spectacular Ghost-Spider herself, Gwen Stacy! In an alternate universe, Gwen was bitten by a radioactive spider and gained spider-like powers. Influenced by her father's moral code, Gwen uses her powers to help those in need like her friend, Peter Parker.
