Spider-Women: Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, and Silk
Okay, this is kind of cheating. But these ladies are all kicking ass in such enjoyably different ways. Spider-Gwen is Gwen Stacy, the Spider-Woman of her alternate world. This series could’ve easily just relied on gimmicky gender-swap stories, but both she and her universe easily holds its own against the familiar, established continuity, and gives Gwen and her father, both deceased in the mainstream comics reality, a second chance for fans to enjoy them. Meanwhile, Spider-Woman has become a story about Jessica Drew balancing pregnancy, then motherhood with her costumed activities. Where else can you mix in mundane concerns like coping with the boredom of maternity leave and trying to fight off alien Skrulls in a hospital located in a black hole? And last, but by no means least, there’s Silk, aka Cindy Moon, a kind of super-heroine Kimmy Schmidt, who’s trying to rebuild her life and balance work and superhero activities after being locked in a bunker for ten years, during which time her family has disappeared.
