Welcome to another Comics THORsday! Today we’ll explore the Unbelievable Gwenpool #5. In this issue, Gwenpool is meeting another Marvel Superhero: Spider-Man, Miles Morales! We left the team answering a client’s call just when Gwenpool had gotten rid of M.O.D.O.K. Because they haven’t decided who is the boss yet, they send Gwenpool to the meeting of the client. Not to be suspicious, they ask her to use regular clothing and the metro. And that’s where she meets Miles Morales.
The first thing Gwenpool does when seeing Miles Morales is starting to fangirl. What would you do if you see one of your heroes in front of you in the metro? I would probably fangirl too. But, Miles is suspicious and traps her and asks her how she knows who he is. Gwenpool cannot tell the truth because no one would believe they’re superheroes in a comic book. So, she lies and says that she can see who some people are thanks to the gift of a dying watcher. It works.
Miles arrives late at school, and Gwenpool goes with him. A bomb explodes, and they decide to help. Well, Gwenpool decides to go with him. However, she has no powers whatsoever, and she is assisted by Spider-Man. Later on, they go to Miles home, and she ends up staying to work on a “school” assignment along with Spider-Man. The mission: to discover who put the bomb in the school.
Gwenpool has been lucky so far. However, the episode with Spider-Man left a print in her mind: she wasn’t helping at all. She was being rescued like all the other people around in the school. So, what can Gwenpool do? Is she just mad? And what happened to the client that is waiting for Gwenpool to arrive at the meeting?
This issue is also cool because we get to know a little bit more about Cecil, the ghost. He was killed by M.O.D.O.K. and resurrected as a ghost by Doctor Strange. Gwenpool is euphoric to have him around again. But it seems that Cecil is having quite a hard time taking in his new status. Cecil is now a ghost, and he cannot do most of the things he could before. The question is: how will his friendship with Gwenpool be in the future? Will it prevail? Or will he be miserable as a ghost?
