Gwen Stacy is a classmate of Peter Parker's and the daughter of Police officer, George Stacy.
Gwen Stacy once stopped high school bully Flash Thompson from beating up Peter Parker just because he wouldn't take a picture of Gordon getting bullied. Later, after various flirtatious encounters, Peter asked Gwen out.
When the Lizard planned to use reptilian DNA to turn the entirety of New York into humanoid lizards, Gwen helped Peter stop his plan by firstly, clearing out Oscorp when Lizard was on his way to get the serum he had made and then making a cure for the serum. Gwen hid in a small vent to prepare for the Lizard's arrival.
When the beast arrived, it sensed Gwen's presence and started searching for her. After finding her, Gwen jumped and, out of reaction, pulled out a small blowtorch and fired at the Lizard. He left, leaving Gwen unharmed, having already retrieved what he needed and left.
Soon, the Lizard took the life of Gwen's father, Captain George Stacy, whose dying wish to Peter was that the two remain apart for her own protection.
Gwen later confronted Peter about her father's wish for them to be apart, but Peter was unresponsive to everything she had to say. Despite this, Peter still chose to talk to Gwen claiming the best promises are the ones that are the hardest to keep.
