Gwen Stacy, whom we met under the skin of Emma Stone (Zombieland: Coup de Grace – 84%, La La Land: A Love Story – 92%, It is said of me 85%) in the saga of The amazing Spiderman, is the one who obtains the spider powers in an alternative universe (Earth-65), and becomes Spider-Gwen. Her greatest strength is her superhuman agility, the ability to stick to walls, and her enormous intelligence.
Kate Bishop, on the other hand, is a skilled archer known for taking on the mantle of Hawkeye in the comics. Born into a wealthy family, she trained in various martial arts and various types of weapons after personal trauma. Her strength lies in her intelligence, combat skills, and her stubbornness, though sometimes the latter can work against her and she has a hard time asking for help.
They both share determination, bravery, and a desire to do the right thing, but their origins and powers are different. While Spider-Gwen is a superhero with superhuman abilities in an alternate universe, Kate Bishop is a normal person in the main Marvel universe who becomes a hero through training and determination.

In the interview with ColliderSteinfeld did not give a forceful answer and rather hesitated to choose any of her characters, but before giving the floor to Moore and the interviewer, she launched a phrase by which it can be understood that, according to her, the experience of Kate Bishop might be enough to win over the mighty Spider-Gwen:
As much as I thought about it, I don’t know if I have the answer, I think they are both very capable and skilled, I feel that between now and when it happens, Kate would have more experience, and she is very fast…
Both the interviewer and Shameik Moore they agreed that Kate wouldn’t stand a chance against Spider-Gwen, who has the spider-sense. To verify this, we can compare the performance of Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with that of Spider-Man in that same universe, and we will see that the distance between the two superheroes is abysmal, with the arachnid being able to face the most powerful villains, such as Thanos’ Black Order, and even against Doctor Strange, while Hawkeye barely survives when he has to face really powerful villains.
Some fans of the archer and his apprentice could argue that with a good strategy the superhero would beat several superhumans, including Spider-Man or Spider-Gwen, but realistically the odds are small, although in the world of comics the greatest power is scripted, and a writer’s pen can make a depowered human defeat a super-powered metahuman.
Spider-Man: A New Universe (2018) distinguished itself both for its innovative visual style and its unique storytelling. The film, starring Miles Morales, an Afro-Latino teenager, had a huge impact on the portrayal of superheroes in comics, and the animation genre in general. The film was widely acclaimed for its bold visual style, which blends various animation techniques to reflect the feel of reading a comic.
Additionally, the storyline featured a multiverse of Spider-Man characters, allowing it to explore various versions of the Spider-Man story, challenging genre conventions and expanding the scope of the spider-superhero universe. The film was rewarded for its innovation and storytelling with the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2019, underlining its importance and success both critically and commercially.
