After finishing my proposal for Miles, I asked some people if they felt this character can qualify. They were less sure about here but I confident that she can qualify. Say hello to Gwen Stacy (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse).

What's the work?

Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is a 2018 Sony animated film focusing on teenager Miles Morales (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) who is bitten by a radioactive spider and becomes the next Spider-Man of his dimension, battling the evil Kingpin while meeting alternate reality versions of Spider-people.

Who is Gwen? What has she done?

Gwen is the spider-woman of her dimension and the tritagonist of the film. She joined a band as a drummer and saved her dad from getting killed. However, she sadly couldn't save her friend Peter Parker from getting killed during a battle when he became the Lizard. She became more distant around friends. One day while battling Doctor Octopus, she was sucked into Miles' dimension.

She went to the school Miles happened to be attending. She instantly befriend Miles, who got a crush on her. Miles tried to make a move on her but accidentally messed up her hair due to his powers. Later, she notices Miles dancing on the building thanks to being stuck to pigeons due to his powers.

Gwen heads to Alchemax and notices Miles and Peter Parker (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) stealing a computer while running from Dr. Octopus. She saves them as they fall and defeats Doc Ock. After telling them her origin, she escapes alongside them. The trio head to Aunt May's house where they meet three other Spider-people, Spider-Man Noir (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Peni Parker (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and Spider-Ham (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). The Spiders realize someone has to stay behind and destroy the collider. Miles wants to do it but when the Spiders test him, they are skeptical if he is ready, causing Miles to leave briefly.

Miles returns explaining his uncle Aaron is the Prowler, before Kingpin's minions attack. Gwen helps battle the villains while Miles manages to talk down his uncle, only to get shot by Kingpin. The Spiders comfort Miles after his uncle expires from his wounds. They then decide to head to turn off the collider but reluctantly leaves Miles behind, fearing he is not yet ready, with Gwen staying behind to wish Miles good-bye.

As they get to the part, Gwen expresses disgust over Kingpin faking sadness over Spider-man's death and comforts Peter when he says Mary Jane of this dimension. The Spiders get downstairs to the collider where Gwen offers to peter she can stay behind and make the sacrifice to let the Spiders return home. Peter states it's okay and he made up his mind. When Kingpin's minions come, Peter gets overpowered by Doc Ock but Miles comes just in time and saves him. Miles fights alongside the Spiders, during the battle Gwen is almost knocked into the portal but Miles saves her. She compliments his outfit and they prepare to fight Doc Ock but she is knocked out by a truck.

The heroes over-ride the collider and each of the Spiders return home. Gwen decides she's fine with Miles liking her haircut and affirms their friendship. With that, Gwen heads back home into her dimension, keeping a photo of her times with Miles. However, the movie ends with Gwen calling Miles through dimensions, asking if he has a second.

Admirable Standard?

The only thing I was skeptical about was if she passed the standards to Miles but I am convinced she does. We see she was a good Spider-woman in her own dimension, battling villains to protect the city, saving her dad from dying, being heartbroken when Peter in her dimension died. She saves Miles and Peter B. Parker earlier in the movie from Doc Ock. She helps assist Miles in saving the multiverse from collapse and even offers to stay behind and make the sacrifice before Miles comes to Peter. Gwen isn't exactly as admirable as Miles but she easily stands out to in my opinion.

Corrupting Factors?

She was upset when Miles ruined her hair, even telling him he doesn't get to like her haircut but this is understandable since he did jack up her hairstyle and she does decide at the end before she returns to her dimension that she's fine with him liking her haircut now. She did support leaving Miles behind at first but only because she believed he wasn't ready for it yet for his own safety. Gwen is a truly kind individual and it's shown her time with Miles and Peter B. inspires her to start making friends again.

Final Verdict?

Although not as strong as Miles, I give Gwen a yes as well.
