    Yeah she and Harry Osborn went to the same high school and dated each other. In ASM #33, Harry Osborn introduces her to Flash as "The ex-beauty queen of Standard High".

    So it's likely that Norman met Gwen when Harry brought her over. Norman meeting Gwen before he met Peter, albeit maybe not before he met Spider-Man, is a definite seed that's there to be picked up.

    I can imagine Marvel revealing that Gwen's true love always was Norman Osborn, since high school.

    I'm curious about the timing, and Jack's theory makes sense.

    This does seem to continue a trend of five issue mini-series (Symbiote Spider-Man, The Amazing Mary Jane, The Abrams/ Pichelli Spider-Man, etc.)

    the last of the big 3 of mj, felicia, gwen but the most boring one of them all so I dont know what this will do? Unless it will tie into the main story I'm not expecting much. Should I expect an Aunt May series next?

    Wonder if Marvel is doing this because Peter's two other love interests got their own mini in the same year, so Marvel decided to make one about Gwen, or they're just using her because of Spider-Gwen's popularity, maybe both?

    Though there could be a third possibility, like Jack's spoiler.

    Still, this could be interesting, I see Gwen as basically having 4 incompatible personalities, first, a tsundere, but bitchier, second, MJ-lite (Happened before she was dating Peter, was pretty brief), third, absolute generic love interest, fourth, that super saint from post death, the fourth one would better be ignored since it's more about other characters talking about her and it's probably coping about her death, but either way, maybe those personality traits could be used in an organic way, could help her to become an actual 2-dimensional character, or maybe even 3-dimensional.

    On the other hand, this could be a hilarious trainwreck that misses the point of her character and is a dumb story to boot too, but who knows, it could be something in-between too lol.

    Gage is a writer who can be pretty good with characterization, but Gwen pretty much has no character, so it's gonna be interesting to see what he's gonna try.

    Oh well, the timing is too much of a coincidence, now I'll believe in Jack's theory.

    The harshness to softness is easy to explain, specially since in a few times (Like ASM#36) we can see in her thoughts that she's considering to be nice with Peter, ASM#37 also has this:



    This is actually a plot hole, since Peter never actually saw her being nice to him, but point is, Gwen acts nice/considers to act nice on some occasions, and the way she acts when she's angry, it's obvious she's frustrated with Peter not giving her attention (Or in the case of ASM#36, frustrated that he's a coward, because apparently not wanting to deal with a super villain makes you one...), so it's easy to explain that her temper was gone because, at least with Peter, she just didn't have as much of a reason to be pissed with him, as she was decently happy with him.

    That being said, while her temper can be explained, stuff like her being more of a diva being gone is way, way harder to explain, plus, the temper being so completely gone is questionable too, but yeah lol.

    But Aunt May already had one:

    Read one of its installments. Pure cringe.

    And already they're doing character synergy on the solicit, with the elaboration on Gwen's top academic skills being that she likes science (as in the Garfield "Amazing" movies and the current animated series).

    Furthermore, like the Bleeding Cool comments put it, we can consider J. Scott Campbell having plenty of variant cover work these coming months.

    I would actually like to see Gwen as Kindred and before killing Pete and MJ have uGhost Spider Gwen come along and kick her a---, but I doubt Marvel has the " Stones: ( little Emma Stone pun there) to do it. I am predicting Jill or Arthur Stacy ( with him most likely).

    Actually, no, she was always supposed to have top academic skills in science:



    This is from ASM#53, and thing is, Lee/Romita were too lazy to actually make this part of her character, so it's an informed attribute, all the movies did was actually make that be part of the character, something Spectacular cartoon also did, and that's probably the only thing either version got right from comics Gwen, by using the attribute she never used lol.

    It's a story that shows Aunt May and Mary being teenagers and messing around, I hear it's mediocre for the most part, and it heavily hints that Peter is actually Aunt May's kid, so yeah, not canon lol.

    I could easily be wrong, but I feel like Christos Gage writing this makes me not believe as much that this will connect towards the main book, since he seems to do work that follows his (and retroactively Slott's) own ideas for Spider-Man and the characters, like Spider-Geddon, etc.

    It does seem very clearly a "Hey, Invisible Woman, Black Cat, and Mary Jane sold very well, lets do Gwen!" As a new "Untold Tales" like story ala Symbiote Spider-Man (which also didn't end up setting up anything ASM either), could be pretty interesting to see. Plus Todd Nauck's that guy who's always nice to see get work, as basically Marvel's go-to "Quick we need an artist for this, grab him he's available."

    Nauck and Gage are the heroes who will cement Tsundere-chan as the true Gwen Stacy for the rest of time.

    so is this taking place in the early 60s or is it "contemporary"? Does Gwen still wear the purple/green outfit regularly?

    We'll find out eventually. My guess is that it will be like Slott's Learning to Crawl, Gwen will look like she did in the Romita era dated '60s fashions but there will be anachronistic touches here and there.

    Will they do a '60s chiffon style a la Spider-Man Blue? Probably not because that style in that story had a purpose, it was evoking nostalgia and so on since it's told from Peter's POV. If you are telling a story from Gwen's POV and start before she meets Peter then it's different.
