This week, we’re unraveling the complex web of one of the most important women in Spider-Man’s life- the all-around nice girl Gwen Stacy. How did her death impact comics, and how has her radioactive reboot given the character new life? This is Gwen Stacy Then & Now.


From across time and space, and throughout the multiverse, listen as multiple generations of geeks come together to discuss the iconic characters, events, and franchises that make up the very fabric of pop culture as we know it.

Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

On this episode of Then & Now, we’re unraveling the complex web of one of the most important women in Spider-Man’s life. An all-around nice girl, Gwen Stacy is mainly known for two things in Marvel comics: her infamous death, and her recent new lease on life as Spider-Gwen. Who is Gwen Stacy, why is she important, and how has her radioactive reboot reinvigorated the character in recent years?

While none of her clones could exactly hold a candle to the original, it’s clear that being given heroic leading-lady status has helped to revive Gwen’s character more than the Jackal ever could.

Fans love this new take on Gwen’s kind heart, giving her super powers and a complex emotional drive to fight crime, whether she’s in Earth-65 or 616. This renewed interest in her adventures has solidified Gwen Stacy’s legendary status throughout the Spider-Verse.

Join us in the Spider-Verse as we discuss Gwen Stacy Then & Now.
