Character Info

Profile

Click to expand.

Gwenpool is related to neither Gwen Stacy, nor Deadpool. The lady who made her costume misread her name on the forms, and thus GWENPOOL was born! A reality-bending danger from another Earth, Gwen has 'retconned' herself into being a Mutant from this universe who simply cannot remember her life her. Confusing, huh? Also, she thinks this is all a comic book world, and thus she can get up to some insane stuff. She knows a CRAZY amount about the world around her, but doesn't seem to know secret identities, at least!

Timeline

Timeline:
2002: Gwendolyn is born on Earth-TRN565 to a normal middle-class family in the Midwest. Life could have been great for her, but she was kind of a loser. She didn't care.

2002 - 2017 : Gwen trudges through life. Her friends all end up moving away, and she quits high school. She dives into fantasy to find a fixation for herself and ignore her life. She doesn't work, doesn't pursue friends or relationships, and just reads comics and plays video games.

2018: She is finally convinced by her mom to get a job, and she finds one at a movie theater. It does not help help her obsessions.

2019 - 2020: Through unknown means (She has told twenty different stories, honestly), her and her brother Teddy are pulled into the Prime Marvel Universe. Her vast knowledge of comics helps her and she is overjoyed. However, the transfer wipes some of her knowledge, as well, muddling any knowledge she has of secret identities and some other things. She is seperated from her brother, and dives into being a costumed individual for the thrills. However, in late 2020 she begins to fear that she will be 'retconned', so she uses her reality alteration to retcon herself. She is 'retconned' into being Homo Superior, and always having lived in this universe, though her first use of powers had wiped her memories of that, and replaced them with memories of her other world.

Confused? Welcome to Gwenpool.

Personality

Homicidal:
"What's the big deal if you die? You've disappeared from publication for
months - years at a time. You'll just come back again eventually."

- The Unbelievable Gwenpool #0

Since deciding to become a proper hero, Gwen has tried to ease back on the homicidal tendencies, but it isn't easy. Imagine you're playing a video game. You don't really see the people in the game as 'real' do you? You don't much pay attention to their thoughts and feelings, their hopes and aspirations. Of course, you don't! It's more fun to just blast them or run them down in your stolen Rhino tank.

Well, that's how Gwen sees the world around her. It's all subject to the immutable laws of superhero media, one of which is that anyone who dies can come back. She has no qualms killing because, well, if that character were important then the writer will bring them back when they're needed. If not? Well, they're just a secondary character and who feels bad about the background extras? Not Gwen. She has absolutely zero problem gunning down the bad guys - they're just text on a screen (or ink on a page) after all.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

Fangirl:
This is the big one, really. Gwen hyper-fixated on comics back 'home'. She read them over and over, memorising little details. She can draw on that lore know, and knows things that nobody should know. Memories of actual secret identities are gone (Because, come on!) but all the rest is there. Like, she knows about Superman's battle with <insert alien here> even though it happened on Jupiter, because it happened in Action Comics #324. She knows powers, exploits, and all kinds of things. She knows who to go to for various things, and where to find folks or get things done...much to everyone elses annoyance.

The Protagonist:
"I'm very curious how I'm going to survive this. Ha! A pillow truck?"

> FWOOMPH < "My ducks!"

"Classic."

- The Unbelievable Gwenpool #0

Gwenpool is a firm believer (be it true or not) that she is the protagonist, heroine, and main character in a comic book. As such, she enjoys a certain sort of luck in all her exploits. Things generally have a habit of turning out for her. She can fling herself from the top of a tall building with no thought as to where she's going to land and somehow land on a mattress, or a trampoline, or a passing truck full of pillows (or very soft and squishable ducks). Generally speaking, things tend to go her way like they would in a story where she is the protagonist and she is expected to (eventually) come out on top. Is this reality manipulation? Is this a luck factor? Is she actually just a character in a work of fiction and you're all crazy thinking it's real? Who can know these things?!

Unfortunately for her, her role as the protagonist has a penchant for going squirrely at the worst possible moment. As such, while she may be confidant that things will work out for her, the universe is not making any such promises.

Skills

Click to expand.

Acrobatics:
She's surprisingly flippy! She could have actually done something in her life with her skills, but never pursued them out of apathy. She can flip and tumble with the best of them, which, when you add in blazing guns or twirling swords, is an 'UH OH'.

Driving:
She isn't the best driver in the world, but boy, does she love her motorcycle. She can handle basic driving, and even some car chases, but she is far from a pro. Still, that hardly stops her.

Firearms:
"Yeah ... for someone who is so mysteriously capable of ruining a crime
boss's night ... you're kind of a terrible shot."

"Well, I haven't been a super hero for very long."

"Do you think you're acting like a super hero?!"

"I don't know if you saw me, but I just shrugged."

- The Unbelievable Gwenpool #0

Gwen really enjoys guns. Next to swords and explosives, they're her favorite tool in her super hero arsenal. Be it a pair of handheld pistols, a submachine gun, a rifle, a bazooka - you name, it she loves it. This is where you're expecting to hear about how she trains all the time and can shoot Biff Tannen's hat off his head or hit a target the size of a quarter from a mile away, right? Ha!

Gwen's skill with firearms is pretty much all enthusiasm. She has no real training in their use beyond what she's learned 'on the job'. She can reasonably hit things; she knows how to reload and maybe fix jams but that's about the extent of it. Trick shots and long-range marksmanship are kind of beyond her.

Then again, sometimes the luck of being the star of her very own story allows her to hit the mark when her (lack of) skill lets her down.

Swords:
Much like her 'skills' with firearms, Gwen loves swords. She twirls and tosses them, flipping about like a maniac. She she actually great with them? No, but if you swing sharp implements are people, it tends to do the trick. Plus, her Protagonist abilities tend to mean she gets through the situation, often looking awesome while doing so.

Resources

Armory:
She's far from wealthy, but she's stolen or 'acquired' quite the armory over her time here. She has various firearms, knives, swords, grenades. Hell, she even has a rocket launcher that can be switched over to non-lethal! She's always on the look-out for more awesome things to add to her armory, of course.

Suit:
Her costume doesn't really add any armor, and she doesn't really try to keep a secret identity...but her costume is cool!

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Fangirl:
She had posters of various characters on her walls, and she can sometimes fangirl or freak out. She might throw herself unabashedly at Batgirl, or try and partner up with the X-Men, etc. It can distract her, or get her into big trouble. It usually does, in fact.

Pseudo-Cidal:
"This looks like a good time to stop you!"

"Waugh! No! Charging and yelling was the worst option! You have guns!
They work from far away!"

- The Unbelievable Gwenpool #0

The other side of the 'being the Protagonist' coin is that Gwen sometimes (most times) has absolutely no regard for her safety. So convinced is she that things will turn out for her that she will just put herself in mind-bendingly dangerous situations without considering how she will get out of them. Charge into a laboratory housing a highly fatal virus with guns blazing? Sure. Leap out of a plane without a parachute? You betcha. Tell Wolverine he's short? You better believe it, bub. Being a superhero means being in danger, and Gwen attracts danger like ... a ... like a ... person who ... gets in danger ... a lot. Like a real lot.
