The “Stacy” Luck

More from Comics

The fact that Gwen is still grieving the death of Peter Parker and that she also buried her Spider-Friends, who died back in the “Spider-Geddon” event, makes her truly heartbroken. Yet she still copes with the world trying to move on. A feeling of the “Parker” luck occurs here, except in this case, it is known as the “Stacy” luck. It’s basically the same feeling Peter Parker had when he lost Uncle Ben and other people in his life, but in Gwen’s case, she lost her Peter Parker and she also buried her Spider-Friends which has made her a bit emotionally weak.

One way in which Peter Parker’s Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Woman are similar is that when they are feeling stressed, they like to swing through the city and fight crime to get their mind off things. The same thing occurs here, in which Spider-Woman fights off a group of criminals.

The Job

In the last issue, Gwen meets up with Betty to set up her business for her to do things for people and get paid. A week has passed since the event of the previous issue. And it is in this issue that Gwen gets her first customer, who is need of some elevated air samples. Gwen easily helps him to do so, and she gets paid 200 bucks just for that. Her job continues for the next few days, during which she doing things like bringing cats down from trees and taking selfies with fans. There’s even a funny scene that occurs, in which a guy asks her to be his date for his spring formal which she says a simple “no” to.

A moment occurs when she is called by the police through the app because an accident has occurred, and they need her to help save hostages from inside cars. There is a girl who is trapped in a car, who Spider-Gwen tries to calm down and gets her to help open the door to help her escape from the fire. This scene is quite special and makes a strong connection to how real-life superheroes (such as firefighters) work to save people in danger.

The story is not rushed at all and seems to be going smoothly. The ending brings a little cliffhanger, and it will be exciting to see where the story goes next.
