10 Messed Up Marvel Comics Moments We'll Never See In Movies
10. When Norman Osborn Impregnated A Barely Legal Gwen Stacy
Offending Comics: The Amazing Spider-Man, #509-#514 (2004-2005)
Quite possibly the most controversial Spider-Man plot ever
published, J. Michael Straczynski’s Sins Past story arc basically retconned
Gwen Stacy’s death and took a big dump all over her character. Remember when
Gwen buggered off to Paris for a bit and returned only to be chucked off a
bridge to her death by Norman Osborn in his Green Goblin get-up?
Well, it turns out his reason for murdering Gwen was that he’d
previously impregnated her with twins and offed her when she threatened to
confess all of this to Peter Parker. During her and Norman’s tryst she was over
the legal age of consent but only by a few years and the whole thing’s made a
lot more icky by the fact that Norman was a good few decades older than her at
Fingers crossed this arc is left solely on page because the
thought of the Green Goblin banging a barely legal Gwen Stacy is too much for
the big screen.
