We know Gwen Stacy as Spider-Man’s girlfriend who met a tragic end. But now that the multiverse of Spider-mans has collided and we have seen two variants of MJ already. So, there could be other Gwen Stacys too. Thanks to the parallel universe not all of them ended tragically. Some of them are doing better. From scientists to God’s bodyguard to a version of Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy variants are doing great. And now that the concept of the multiverse is fully being embraced by the MCU. There are a few amazing Gwen Stacy variants we would love to see.
Spider-Gwen is a variant we would love to see
This has to be the most popular variant of Gwen Stacy. Spider-Woman or Ghost Spider is the character made for “Edge of the Spider-Verse.” In the comic event when different variants of spider-mans met. In the Spider-Gwen universe, Gwen was the one bit by the mutant spider and not Peter. She is also a super cool character, from her costume to her style. In her universe, Peter turns into the Lizard and she ends up killing him. For which she is sent to S.H.I.E.L.D. prison. Also, she has her adaptation in Into the Spider-Verse as well.
Gwen Stacy variant of Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series
This version of Gwen is not Peter’s girlfriend but his best buddy, though she has feelings for him. It is quite the opposite from the comics as she was the one who made the first move and kissed Peter in the season 1 finale. Later, Peter realizes he too has deep feelings for her but keeps them suppressed. Also, his Parker Luck keeps interfering in their love and Gwen goes on to date Harry Osborn instead. Though the two got to confess their feelings for each other, we could not see more of this Gwen as the series ended. So, we want to and would love to see her get a better end in a movie.
Gwen Stacy of Ultimate Universe
The Ultimat Spider-Man alternate of Gwen has to be another cool variant of the character. In the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, all supporting characters were reinvented in new ways. The variant here was a bad-girl genius and wore tank tops and leather jackets. She is the total bad guy character but also smart. In fact, she wasn’t afraid to pull out a knife to save Peter from the bullies. She has her tragedies too, though. hr dad was killed and she lived with the Parkers. And was more like a sister to Peter. This cool version needs to come in the movies.
The classic version of Gwen Stacy
The version created by Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jon Romita Sr. laid down the groundwork for all other variants. This variant is classic but had a few problems. Also, she came off a little cold in Amazing Spider-Man #31. But soon she warmed up with Peter, though the two started dating quite late. This variant hated Spider-Man and blamed him for her father’s death. And sadly she died never finding out that her boyfriend was the superhero she despised.
Gwen Stacy from Age of Apocalypse
This variant of Gwen Stacy was introduced in X-Universe #1. In a world of mutants where Charles Xavier had not found the X-Men and a genocidal mutant apocalypse had been caused. She, here, is a fighter who is a partner of Donald Blake, Tony Stark, Sue Storm, and Ben Grimm. This variant is strong and takes down villains herself. She even fought against the Hulk of her universe. We need to see this fighter in movies. She even blew away killer Marauders. Also, she does it all without any superpowers of her own.
