** Gwen is a huge comic nerd so she knows how the world works and can exploit it to do pretty much whatever she wants. To the point of knowing that any fall from a great height will most likely not be fatal, so why bother with parachutes. However, this is deconstructed as Gwen only has feigning knowledge in certain facts. It takes her time in a high-pressure situation to even ''remember'' Thor's secret identity, and she only thinks of M.O.D.O.K as the MemeticLoser that some Marvel fans view him as rather than the very serious and credible threat he is in-universe. [[spoiler: She also doesn't read ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}''. Apparently, his brand of humor's a little too [[MemeticMutation "LOL Memes"]] for her tastes.]]

** The second part of her team up with ComicBook/MilesMorales. Everything about the team up initially points towards HilarityEnsues until Gwen tries to kill one of Miles' classmates, rationalizing it as him just being a bit player in the comic book story. Miles is most definitely not ok with that and he ties her up and leaves her to get arrested.
