* {{Woobie}}: Gwen, yeah she may have survived in this universe but her best friend was killed and she was held responsible.


* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The initial run of Latour and Rodriguez had a unique art style, which was lost in the 2019 relaunch. The art becomes standard and there is a higher focus on Earth-616 rather than Gwen's home oof Earth-65.

Added DiffLines:

* CantUnhearIt: Popular voices for this version of Gwen are Creator/DoveCameron and Creator/HaileeSteinfeld.

Added DiffLines:

* MorePopularReplacement: Of the original Gwen Stacy. While most people accept that the original was a very important character due to her death, many don't like her inconsistent characterization over the years from a high maintenance woman to someone who is pure. In contrast, many enjoy this version of Gwen for having more of a consistent characterization as a drummer who is still shaken over her greatest failure, even when meeting an AU version of her lost friend.


** In the first arc of the ''Ghost-Spider'' relaunch, Gwen is trapped in another demension where it is heavily implied that the Gwen and MJ of that world are a couple.

* IAmNotShazam: The title is Spider-Gwen, but the title character is Gwen Stacy, AKA Spider-''Woman''. After she reveals her secret identity to the public, the media dubs her Spider-Gwen in-universe, and she hates it.



** Quite a few fans have interpreted Gwen's relationship with MJ in this manner, even though the latter's attitude towards the former [[BelligerentSexualTension would seem to suggest otherwise]]. It's understandable, considering both characters' [[LoveInterests love]] [[HeroesWantRedheads interest]] in Earth-616, Peter Parker, is deceased in Spider-Gwen's world. With panels like [[http://i.imgur.com/p3Pabid.jpg this]] -- actually an AlternateUniverse Spider-Gwen, not the one from Earth-65 -- seeing print, the writers don't seem to be in any rush to discourage it... [[spoiler:though the revelation that MJ's a couple with Glory torpedoes it]].

Gwen briefly wonders if the lyrics of one of MJ's songs are unsubtly trying to hint at her having a crush on her.


* CommonKnowledge: A ''lot'' of fanart tends to depict Gwen with longish-hair and wearing the classic Gwen Stacy headband, despite her canon depiction having short messy hair, as befitting her tomboyish nature. This even extends to her appearing like this in team and event books. As a result, a lot of people think she's ''just'' classic Gwen Stacy with spider-powers, to the point that when Gwen appeared in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'', some were surprised by her being a somewhat sardonic, punk-styled character.

In any case, ''ComicBook/GhostSpider2019'' usually draws her more similar to her Earth-616 counterpart, so it might just be a case of DependingOnTheArtist.

* FanNickname: Some fans and cosplayers call her "White Widow". The name "Spider-Gwen" was also a moniker that later became the name of the series since Gwen goes by "Spider-Woman" [[SecretIdentity for obvious reasons]].

** Some have argued that Peter Parker, before his transformation, goes back to his Creator/SteveDitko roots in terms of characterization; an awkward, angry misanthrope who often made vague "[[TheDogBitesBack I'll show them one day!]]" threats in his head. Here we see what would have happened to this Peter had he ''not'' became Spider-Man; he'd remained bitter and desperate to get the power to stand up for himself, which resulted in him becoming The Lizard.
** It's also been argued that this was also done to Mary Jane. Before her character development, relationship with Peter, and Gwen's death; MJ projected an ItsAllAboutMe mentality among her peers and was seen as insensitive by Peter at the time. However, others point out that MJ was always charismatic, charming, friendly and gregarious and never bitchy and bossy, and she was the adored niece of her Aunt and treated like a daughter by Aunt May.

Lizard. Whether or not it worked is to this day heavily discussed.

Thus people are not fond of this portrayal either.
