sora_thekey's What If? Spider-Man House of M #1 - Gwen Stacy Survived The House of M?; Spiderman Intervened For the Scarlet Witch?; Say What? review

Gwen's spotlight... Good or Bad?

So here's my first Video Review for 2010
 
  

 

There's something I edited out of this video (for time purposes) that I wanted to share with you... I never got the chance of explaining why Gwen Stacy was my favorite character:

When I was 10 years old my family and I moved to a new house where I found this box of old stuff. In the box there were two comic books, a Batman one (Which I remember nothing of) and a Spider-Man comic. The Spider-Man comic was a tie-in to the Clone Saga storyline, and in the comic Scarlet Spider and Spider-Man were confronting the Jackal. In the comic book Jackal reveals he had cloned Gwen Stacy, it left me in a cliffhanger because the building collapsed and Gwen walked away.

After that this Gwen character intrigued me, so I went to the library and looked for anything I could find on her, investigated her on the internet etc...

5 years later I walk into a Boarders book store and see an Ultimate Spider-Man comic book. It was number 99 but two things attracted me: The side said "Clone Saga: Part 3" and the blond girl on the cover who I recognized (for some reason) as Gwen Stacy.

The funny thing is that my first comic book was on the Gwen Stacy clone during the clone saga, and on USM 99 (my first comic book BTW) the story was about Peter Parker finding the Gwen Clone during the clone saga...

So yeah... that's how I got into comic books... Tell me what you think!

my brain exploded from your explanation but I don't blame you I blame the writers. And I think you should spoil the story ONLY when it is lousy. And I love Gwen too.

The first what if story i read was What if Dr doom kept the power and the Beyonder, and a lot of characters died, Ok , lets say it was a Dr Doom story. But doing a Spidey story and a lot of people die, I just can't understand that. Death must have become stronger then the One Above All while I wasn't looking.
Please continue the video reviews, their great.

Honesty? I think you should save your money... If you want to read great Spider-Man/Green Goblin read the Ultimate Spider-Man story between them!
