The recent article about Gwen Stacy needing to die again made a reference to her being reduced to a woman in refrigerator. This made me think that putting her in that group is reducing her as a character, making her into a throw away character thats only purpose was to kill off to advance Spider-man, this simply isn't true though. She was a character for quit some time and would eventually die because of her connection to Peter like many characters, regardless of their gender. Not to long before her death, her father died because of Spider-man actions, this too developed Spider-mans character, but not in the same way. If it had been Harry Osborn, the best friend it would be different, he wouldn't be in a group like the woman in refrigertor. Is it just because Gwen is a women that died that she automatically becomes a Woman in refrigerator? When I think of the characters that are women in refrigerators, I think of characters that were throw away characters, only created to be killed off, Gwen wasn't that at all.
