As part of GameInformer‘s exclusive deal for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, we’ve got another new gameplay trailer. This one focuses on the super hero alter-ego of Gwen Stacy, called Spider-Woman, but she’s better known to fans as Spider-Gwen. After all, there are quite a few Spider-Women in the Marvel Universe.
For those who aren’t all up on their Spider-Verse lore, Spider-Gwen is from an alternate universe where Gwen Stacy was the one bitten by a radio-active spider and gained arachnid super powers which she uses to fight crime. That universe’s Peter Parker, the one who normally gets bitten by radio-active spiders in Marvel universes, instead turned himself into lizard monster while trying to give himself powers like his idol Spider-Woman. In the end, Spider-Gwen had to fight Lizard-Peter, and poor Peter was accidentally killed in the conflict.
Gwen’s move-set in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was revealed by GameInformer and includes some absolutely great abilities with typically Spidey names:
Swing time: Gwen shoots a string of web into the air, then uses the momentum for a swing attack in the area. You can tap the attack button to lengthen the attack.
Legit Beatdown: Gwen creates a giant ball of web and swings it around her head in a circle, hitting enemies in an area.
Catchy Attack Name: Gwen releases multiple we blasts in front of her. You can tap the attack button to produce more webbing.
Disappearing Act: Gwen warps into the air above enemies and then slams to the ground unleashing a devastating shockwave. Players can hold the attack button to aim.
