    "Ghost Spider" still sounds more like a villain name to me. They even used it for one of the Spider Slayers back on USM.

    You're not alone. It sounds to me as well.

    Well, Spider Gwen is easier to say for a teenage hero than Spider Woman (if that truly is like in the comics) (also, teenage Wonder Woman works since she's more iconic). Unless a project is meant to be supernatural, a name like Ghost Spider does have an ominous aura to it.

    Well, we also usually have a teenage Peter Parker running around as "Spider-Man," so I don't see it as much of an issue :shrug:.

    Well, Spider-Man is a more iconic name, even if he's usually a teenager. Spider Gwen is something relatively recent, hence why this name is used instead

    It doesn't make much sense to me - the "Spider-Gwen" name from the comics is supposedly too recent to use, so they come up with a completely new name for the character instead.

    They could've just called her "Spider-Woman" and saved everyone and themselves all the trouble.

    They said she's called "Ghost Spider" since "Spider-Gwen" doesn't make sense for a character with a secret identity, but everyone seems to forget that she's not actually called Spider-Gwen in the comics :sweat:.

    I can only assume that for some reason Marvel doesn't want to associate Gwen Stacy with the Spider-Woman moniker in outside media.

    Well, if nothing else, I have to admit "Ghost Spider" sounds better than the "Kid Arachnid" codename they used for Miles Morales on USM.

    The Marvel Database wiki listed the tie-in comics for this as part of Earth-616. (By an admin of that site I should mention.)

    Was this ever confirmed or are the "Marvel Rising" comics separate from the film?
