I don't get it? Is Gwen Stacy a meme or something?
>tfw no Green Gwen to fight Spider-Gwen
>tfw no Iron Gwen
>tfw no Gwentastic Four
>tfw no Captain Gwen-Luc Picard of the U.Gwen.Gwen Enterprise
That's all gonna happen during the Gwenihlation Wave cross over. After the events of Gwen Island Agwengers hunt down all the Infinity Gwens and put them in the Infinity Gwentlet so they can use it to undo the tragedies of Gwenosha.
she doesn't even have a headband
Because the original variant cover was Gwen. The writing team was just smart enough to take that in a different direction.
Also I wouldn't be surprised if she deliberately ripped off SpiderGwen to try and make herself a more popular character and avoid dying.
Gwen is a meme character.
Marvel has to cash in on whatever's popular.
People liked Gwen Stacy in ASM2 so they made Spider-Gwen. People liked Spider-Gwen('s costume) so much they made covers with Gwen dressed as others. People liked Gwenpool('s costume) so they made a Gwenpool comic.
It's all about the money...despite the fact I think they're hardly making any off of this mess.
I normally hate anytime somebody uses meme as an adjective but it almost works for Gwen.
So is Gwenpool forced to constantly act upbeat and quirky? Like, she knows she has plot armor. As long as she's in a fun comic she'll be okay because it'll stay light-hearted. But the moment she starts getting upset or dramatic, for example if began reflecting on the fact that she's trapped in a different universe with no way home, her comic takes a turn to a more serious route. And as soon as her comic gets more serious, it means she can be made to suffer. And she's got to realize that eventually some sort of drama will be thrown her way.
Gwenpool is by the Dr. McNinja writer. He doesn't take it seriously and likely making fun of it. He's the guy when people were pumping out Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe and Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe flipped it and made Longshot SAVES The Marvel Universe.
Okay, OP. I had the exact same confusion like a month ago.
Originally, Gwenpool was just a gag. A joke on Spider-Gwen, and implicitly an alternate universe Gwen Stacy.
But at some point, they decided to actually make the character, where they dropped the AU Gwen Stacy angle entirely and made Gwen Poole- an almost literal self-insert implicitly from our world or another universe that also publishes the same Marvel comics.
>Is Superior good?
Pretty meh. You're better off reading anything else superior showed up in cause he was written better in those than in his main book.
>Is the new Amazing good?
Step-up from Spider-verse which was hot garbage. Decent and probably interesting but I dropped it quickly.
>Is Spider Gwen good?
Who wouldn't want to enter the fantastic world of the comics that you read for entertainment?
That's the point of a self-insert character, to represent the reader within the story. Sometimes is nuanced and subtle, and other times it's a supposedly all-knowing fan who wants to meet and interact with their fiction.
If that isn't you, then that's fine too. It isn't a universal idea.
>Fucking Marvel comics is at it again! Publishing all of my deepest secrets and internal monologues for all of my enemies to pick up at their local comic shop! Where are they getting this info?!
>Marvel has to cash in on whatever's popular.
Which is exactly why we literally had nearly 200 Skottie Young "Baby Variant" covers over the past few years. Marvel sees something as a moderately popular novelty and exploits it to artificially boost their sales with variant order requirements from retailers.
In She-hulk vol 1 it is revealed that Marvel comics is a comic book publisher in the Marvel universe and not only do they publish comics identical to the ones published in our universe but they can be used as evidence in a court of law.
No, Marvel Comics in the 616 are inconsistent, either tie-in that cannot possibly represent the actual events because of printing and editorial alone, or outright propaganda.
And even so, the concept that 'Marvel comics in the 616 are the same as in our world' actually undermines the comics anyway. The assumed appeal of reading a comic, or any story, is that (unless there are some genre things or intentional choices being made by the creators) we get a unique an comprehensive perspective on the story and characters, only mediated by the writers, artists, and obviously editorial. But in the 616, those stories and perspectives would be significantly limited, because instead of just writers, artists, and editorial, we would the huge gaps in access to information, any kind of super-hero journalism, and whether these parties and individuals involved (some of which are supposed to be enemy combatants and highly secret government organizations) would be forthcoming or even honest about the details.
616 Marvel is pretty much white-washed propaganda, and if our Marvel is supposed to publish the SAME comics, we're being cheated more than we already are with the "Smilin' Stan was doing it before the Disney buyout" shilling and bland creative teams.
>She-hulk Vol 1
This is the problem with shared universes. In early She-hulk that was their sense of humor. The writers should be allowed to make gags like that without it having to be taken literally and retroactively applied to like every Marvel comic since the Fantastic Four took off.
Yes, because in the Marvel universe, the Marvel comics are the actual exploits of the superheroes, true stories. Not made up shit.
They made reference to Fantastic Four licensing their stories out to Marvel in the past.
I don't care anymore.
It's an inconsistent gag with the character.
I'm surprised at how many people on /co/ hate Grant Morrison when it is such a prevalent idea that comics continuity is the same as if you were reading a real newspaper from 616.
I think that was the case in the Bill and Ted comics, when they got stuck in a dimension of superheroes.
Nobody could remember anyone's backstories or even who is currently a villain or hero, characters died one page and reappeared the next, and they read their own ongoings to figure out what to do next.
Wrong, that has only been the case in gag comics like She-Hulk. We've actually had a mini showing what Earth-616 comics look like, outside of the pre-Fantastic Four stuff which we know are in-universe comics based on Earth-616 events.
She is an infection spreading throughout the mutliverse. All will become Gwen in the end.
>Hulk Gwen will never give you tender, powerful snoo snoo
>I don't get it? Is Gwen Stacy a meme or something?
not if they were the same person. if Gwenpool is a parody, that literally puts her in meme territory. stop being an autistic sperglord.
The current generation of Marvel creators grew up around the time Gwen Stacy died. They keep toying with bringing her back, and since that got support from various groups of fans for various reasons we could get mad at each other about for hours, they have AU Gwens show up.
I think its fucking lame but whatever, its a free country.
