For everyone who loved Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2 , here is a new way to keep that love alive and find a new way to interact with the character you love.

In this comic it is not Peter Parker that gets bitten by a radioactive spider but Gwen Stacy. So naturally, she puts a suit together and gets out there to do some good in the world.
Before you get confused, I should tell you that this story takes place in an alternate universe so while Peter Parker does still exist, Stacy is the focus of the story. What I am truly interested to see is this new dimension added to the character. How does she change and what is her backstory that drives her to become a masked superhero?
What I want from this issue is for it to breathe new life into a character that has been dead for over 40 years in the comic book universe. I want her to be her own person and not just a love interest for a boy.
For those of you hesitant about investing in a long running series, don't be worried. This is a single issue story with no confirmed plans to continue. This is also sad news because when you really fall for a character and their story, you want to learn more about their lives.
Hopefully, Marvel will see the interest and buzz surrounding this one-shot title and decide to invest more time in it. Fingers crossed!
