Spider-Gwen aka Spider-Woman (real name Gwen Stacy) is a teenage superheroine from the home dimension of Kid Arachnid. She uses hi-tech gadgets to simulate having spider-powers.
Spider-Gwen wears a black bodysuit with white areas that form a spider design, a white hood with the interior lining being magenta with cyan web patterns, matching magenta-and-cyan designs on her upper arms,and cyan soles to her boots
Spider-Gwen is a very heroic person who was very brave to step up and replace Kid Arachnid.She is also very smart as she created all the tech that gives her spider powers.
A native of Miles' dimension, Gwen Stacy assumed the role of Spider-Woman after Spider-Man was transported to Peter Parker's dimension. Using technology stolen from her father's robot program and with the help of her world's version of May Parker, Gwen became a superhero in Miles' absence by simulating spider powers despite having no spider powers of her own. However, due to her activity, she also had to deal with her father's pursuit of vigilantes.
When Miles returns along with Peter, Gwen helps them recover the remaining Siege Perilous piece, which was at the police station. Gwen goes to visit her father in order to distract him while Peter and Miles recover the piece. However, this fails when Wolf Spider attacks the station and soon takes Rio Morales hostage at Miles' home. After rescuing Rio, Peter, Gwen and Miles confront Wolf Spider in his underwater lair. Wolf Spider claims the Siege Perilous, and starts to drain the life-force of every spider-based character in the multiverse. During the battle, Miles and Gwen are claimed in the process, while Peter permits Wolf Spider into claiming his life. Once Peter is taken to the world where the Spider people are held, Gwen questions him on letting the villain win. However, Peter reveals this was a trick because he knew holding all the life-forces at once proves to be too much for Wolf Spider to handle.
Wolf-Spider soon shatters, allowing the life-forces to return to their bodies. The three Spiders then leave the lair but run into Gwen's father who learned of his daughter's superhero life after speaking with Rio. George accepts Gwen's role and the two then reconcile.
