Being a superhero may be a full-time job, but it typically doesn’t pay. For Gwen Stacy, that’s a concern, especially since her dad has been on leave from his role as police captain. In Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider #6, she tells him she might take on some odd jobs for pay, to help them stay afloat. It’s not her usual M.O., but it will work with her plan to stay in Earth-65 and resume business as usual after the devastating events of Spider-Geddon.
