I am so tired of people saying Gwen Stacy is a damsel. She is far from that. She goes back for Peter in the school scene, knowing he is facing something dangerous, and whacks at a giant mutant with a trophy. She refuses to leave Oscorp before getting everyone and out and finishing the antidote. People seem to forget if she hasn’t made that, even if Peter defeated Connors, the city would be filled with mutant lizards. She sacrificed the danger of losing her life to stay and try to keep Connors from getting to the top of the tower anyway. She was raise by a chief of police, obviously she knows what courage is an she puts others above herself. She saved the entire city and got no recognition for it, nor asked- she is a hero.
