How did Gwen Stacy die? YOU The World have decided.

Amazing Spider-Man #121, Gwen Stacy falls to her death
All seekers of truth and justice will no doubt be delighted to know the results are in from the latest poll to hit the internet.

Because you the jury have decided just how Gwen Stacy died.

It's an issue that's vexed the world for nearly four decades but at last the truth can be revealed.

And what an epic poll it was, with a mighty 41 votes, making it by far the most number of votes for any Steve Does Comics poll ever.

In joint fifth place, with 2 votes each, were, "The sheer speed of her fall killed her," and, "I don't know."

In fourth place, with 4 votes, was, "The impact of the Goblin glider knocking her off the bridge killed her."

In third place, with 5 votes, was, "Gwen Stacy is still alive! I refuse to accept she's not!"

In second place, with 6 votes, was, "The Goblin had already killed her before Spidey arrived at the scene."

But the runaway winner, with a walloping 22 votes, was, "Her neck broke when Spidey caught her."

Amazingly, no one voted for, "Mary Jane Watson poisoned her then framed the Goblin." How that girl gets away with it, I'll never know. I happen to know Mary Jane Watson also killed George Stacy, the Kangaroo and Uncle Ben, as I'll reveal in my Spider-Man retcon if Marvel ever have the sense to let me write the strip.

As always, thanks to all who voted - and apologies to J Jonah Jameson, who it seems was right all along; Spider-Man is indeed a menace to society.

Hey, in Spidey's defence, I don't think she would have done very well if he just let her hit the water!

I'm pretty sure Gerry ( Killer ) Conway confirmed in an Amazing Spider-Man letters page ( remember them? ) that Gwen was indeed killed by a combination of Spidey's web-line and gravity. Those Staceys just had the worst luck...

Yeah. That Spidey - bit of a jinx or what?
