Quotes by Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)

Quote1.png You're a good cop, dad. You put on that badge and carry that gun because you know if you don't someone who shouldn't will. When I put on this mask, I only did it -- because it freed me from responsibility. I thought I was special. And Peter Parker died because he tried to follow my example. I have to take responsibility for that. To make his death mean something. But I can't do it in a jail cell. This mask is my badge now. If I don't define what it means... monsters like this will. This is where I'm needed most. Quote2.png
--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)

--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)
Quote1.png As Spider-Woman I've traveled the Multiverse. I've stared down psychic vampires and psycho cops. Kicked in all the scary yellow teeth.

--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)

--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)
Quote1.png Why does everything have to be so hard? I just want to save the city, help people and play the drums. It's not like I want to be a unicorn astronaut space princess. I haven't since I was five. Quote2.png
--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)

Quote1.png We can play "what if" forever. I've met people who look at our whole universe as a big game of "what if." What if Gwen Stacy didn't die? What if she got super-powers instead? What if she, just once, she got to be the hero? Quote2.png
--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)
Quote1.png You're seriously telling me not to be a hero in my own hometown because you're prettier than me? Quote2.png
--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)
Quote1.png I know what you're gonna say--we've talked this through. We've made a decision. But that's exactly my problem with this, It's not our decision to make. He came to me, and asked me what to do. He wanted to know if it's what I would've wanted. If I were--If I were the other me. Your me. I get it--confusing. And I tried to answer him the best I could. I thought about how I would feel, if I were... me. But the truth is, I have no idea what that Gwen would've done. We don't have that luxury here, do we? Yes, we all had these visions of Norman killing him. But Miles-- when you talked to him, you told him that was a risk and it didn't change his mind, did it? This is what I'm trying to say-- this is his fight. These are his demons. We may think we know best-- we may think he's wrong-- but hasn't he earned the right to make that choice himself? I mean, come on-- This is Spider-man. There's a reason they call him the best of us. It took me a while to figure it out. The Peter Parker I knew was a very different guy. This one is the real deal. A hero. No matter who tries to stop him, he's going to do what he believes is right. And if we told him that's how he'd die? Well, I'm guessing-- he wouldn't have it any other way. So yeah, I'm Gwen Stacy-- thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. Quote2.png
--Gwendolyn Stacy (Earth-65)
Quote1.png Where I come from, we figured out a long time ago that you can't own people. Quote2.png
