Gwen Stacy’s Story Gets Epic Conclusion in New ‘Giant-Sized’ Comic

While 616 Gwen isn’t her own Avengers like the other Gwens, fans can look forward to an exciting story from the Standard High School standout. Marvel promises that “In the continuity story, Gwen faces a conspiracy that spans the entire Marvel Universe as she crosses over with dangerous Marvel villains and joins the original X-Men.† Looks like one shot will give Gwen Stacy some interesting retro character development. Love interests in comics, especially in older books, are often criticized because their characteristics are defined by their relationship to the hero. It’s a bigger problem when love interests are killed to advance the hero’s emotional story, a figure of speech often referred to as “deception.” The most famous storyline Gwen has appeared in over the years is “Gwen Stacy Night,” in which Gwen barely has any influence and her death only haunts Spider-Man.

While Spider-Gwen’s presence provides an opportunity for a more in-depth characterization of Gwen’s variant, there’s not much that can be done for the 616 version without completely eliminating her demise. However, a story set in the past shows Gwen as her own person, with her own experiences that can give her the depth she needs. Gwen Stacy’s return from 616 with an oversized series is sure to shed new light on a character who has been under the radar for years.

Gwen Stacy’s Story Gets Epic Conclusion in New ‘Giant-Sized’ Comic

Even though the 616 Gwen isn’t her own Avengers team like other Gwens, fans can expect an exciting tale for the notable Standard High student. Marvel promises that this “in-continuity story will see Gwen tackle a Marvel Universe-spanning conspiracy that has her cross paths with dangerous Marvel villains and team up with the original X-Men“. It seems that the one-shot is primed to give Gwen Stacy some interesting retroactive character development. Love interests in comics, particularly in older books, have often been critiqued for their characterizations being defined by their relationships to heroes. It’s even more of an issue when love interests are killed in order to advanced the emotional story of a hero, a trope known colloquially as “fridging”. The most notable story Gwen ever appeared in for years was “The Night Gwen Stacy Died”, an arc where Gwen had little agency and her death only served to torment Spider-Man.
While the existence of Spider-Gwen has provided an opportunity to give a variant Gwen a deeper characterization, not much can be done for the 616 version without undoing her death altogether. However, a story set in the past that shows Gwen as her own person, with her own experiences can give her needed layer of depth. The return of 616’s Gwen Stacy with an oversized collection is sure to shine a new light on a character that hasn’t had the spotlight in years.
Look for Giant-Size Gwen Stacy when Marvel Comics releases it on August 10th!
