Gwendolyn "Gwen" Stacy[1][2] appears as a supporting character in Marvel Comics' Spider-Man series. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, she first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #31 (December 1965).

A blonde college co-ed, Gwen becomes the first love of Peter Parker (Spider-Man). Spider-Man accidentally kills Gwen in The Amazing Spider-Man #121 (June 1973). Both the decision to kill Gwen and the method in which Marvel implemented it remain controversial among fans, but the death became a pivotal point in both Spider-Man’s history and in American comic books in general. Spider-Man writers and fans disagree about who is the character’s “one true love”: Gwen or his subsequent wife Mary Jane Watson.

In the 2007 feature film Spider-Man 3, Gwen is portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard. In the Spider-Man reboot, Gwen will be portrayed by Emma Stone.[3]
