| > I was having a conversation with my sister, a non-comic reader, and we got on this topic. She asked who killed Gwen and I couldn't give a good answer. I'm not asking about legal culpability, but do you think Spider-Man killed Gwen when he snagged her with his web, or had the Green Goblin already killed her? |
Weeell, in terms of proximate cause of Gwen's death, I'm gonna say that my own sense is that Spidey inadvertently snapped her neck when he caught her with his web line. Of course, there have been many different tellings of that event, and as it's fiction there's no "real" truth to get to.
Thinking about it, though, it does seem like there should have been an autopsy, which would have at least pointed to one cause vs. another... has this ever been brought up?
Ultimately, of course, The Green Goblin pushed Gwen off the top of a bridge; it was GG who sent her to her death... even if Spider-Man's attempted rescue ended up killing Gwen several seconds earlier, it's still not really accurate to blame Spidey for Gwen's demise.
Gerry Coway was soley responsable for her death. He wanted her dead. And to this day, boast about how he was the one.
