Daughter to Captain George Stacy and Helen, it was after high school that Gwen enrolled at the Empire State University to major in biochemistry. Apart from befriending Harry Osborn and Flash Thompson, she meets Peter Parker who is also majoring in biochemistry. It was during this time that Spider-Man’s First Girlfriend Gwen Stacy begins to develop a more romantic interest in Peter, especially since she had already dated both Flash and Harry and found Peter Parker to be a breath of fresh air when compared to them.
