Origin

Gwen Poole lived in a universe not unlike ours, where all super-heroes and super-villains were fictional characters that manifested through comic books, video games and movies among other media.[1]

Through unrevealed means, she arrived to the Marvel Universe, claiming to have hailed from "the real world." Unwilling to being relegated as an "extra," she went to a tailor for super-heroes and requested her own costume to stand out. The tailor Ronnie complied, but she also misread Gwen's form, and thought the young girl went by the alias of "Gwenpool."[2]

Gwen Poole, in her home universe

Meeting Howard the Duck

One of Gwenpool's first misadventures involved her meeting Howard the Duck, who was coerced by the Black Cat into finding Gwen after she had stolen a virus from her and sold it to Hydra for quick cash, believing that the Avengers would simply deal with any sort of consequence. When Gwenpool tried to kill Howard to prevent the Black Cat from finding her, he made her see the error in her nonchalant attitude, which originated from Gwen undervaluing the lives of the inhabitants of the Marvel Universe, whom she believed were nothing more than fictional characters. In order to fix the problem she had caused, Gwenpool set out to retrieve the virus from a Hydra base.[2]

Gwenpool and Howard assaulted the Hydra base and retrieved a canister with the virus. When they were surrounded, she ingested it, believing it was the mumps, a virus she had been vaccianted from in her home reality. The virus started to mutate Gwen, but a Hydra agent provided her with the cure to avoid infecting the entire base. When Howard met up with the Black Cat to give her back the box that supposedly contained the virus, Gwen appeared disguised as a member of the organization that had sold the virus to the Black Cat, pretending to want it back. Using the money obtained from the transaction with Hydra, Gwen bought the box from the Black Cat, preventing her from discovering it was empty.[3]

Unmasked

Agent of M.O.D.O.K.

In order to find an stable source of money, Gwen decided to become a mercenary, getting contract jobs from her tailor Ronnie. One such mission involved assassinating a naga named Orto, which netted Gwen a large sum of money;[4] however, when she attempted to open a bank account, she was unable to do so due to lack of proper identification. The trip to the bank wasn't a total loss as she did meet Cecil, a hacker who helped her with future assignments.

After killing M.O.D.O.K.'s best agent and taking the credit for a job carried out by him, that involved killing several Teuthidans stationed on Earth, M.O.D.O.K. tracked Gwenpool down and murdered Cecil to threaten her into becoming his new henchman and an agent for his Mercenary Organization Dedicated Only to Killing,[5] whose members consisted of Batroc, Mega Tony and Terrible Eye.

Her first mission consisted of abducting a black druid named Seed of Pain from police custody to assassinate him. They were intercepted by Thor, who wanted to retrieve Seed of Pain to help an elf colony. Lacking any training whatsoever, Gwen was mostly useless in the fight, though she managed to distract Thor using her knowledge of the "real world," calling out the hero by her real name, and distracting her long enought to fire a bazooka on Seed of Pain.[6]

Having caught notice of Gwen's lack of skills, Batroc confronted her, but decided to remain quiet. With M.O.D.O.K. growing suspicous of Gwen's absolute lack of back records, which also prevented her from getting paid, she got Doctor Strange's help. The sorcerer transplanted every trace of Gwen's existence from her home dimension to her new reality.[7] Even though Gwen now enjoyed the benefits of getting paid and Batroc's training, the appearance of her back records allowed M.O.D.O.K. to discover she was a normal person with no real skills. M.O.D.O.K. confronted Gwen and tried to kill her for it. With a mix of luck and Batroc's training, Gwen managed to fend off M.O.D.O.K., ultimately defeating him with the help of Cecil's ghost, whose presence was made possible in the land of the living with Doctor Strange's help.[8]

Head of M.O.D.O.K.

With M.O.D.O.K. gone, Gwen was appointed as the new representative for their client. On the way to the client's home, Gwen came across Miles Morales on the subway, shocking him when she made it evident she knew his secret identity as Spider-Man. She claimed to have been gifted with knowledge from a dying Watcher to calm him down. On their way to Miles's school, they witnessed an explosion and together helped evacuate the building.[9] Gwen decided to further help Miles solve the mystery of the arsonist, due to knowing the identity of the culprit because of having read comics featuring Miles back in her old universe. When they snuck into the house of the arsonist, a classmate of Miles named Damian, Gwen tried to kill him. Spider-Man stopped her and later webbed her up for the police. Batroc and the other agents of M.O.D.O.K. broke her out of prison.[1]

Gwen and the agents of M.O.D.O.K. were targeted by the Teuthidans for the death of their agents. They managed to distract the aliens and escape, allowing Gwen to finally visit their client, a oddly normal man named Vincent who requested jobs to M.O.D.O.K. to eliminate threats for the sake of his utopian vision of a mundane world. On her way back to the base, Gwen had to evade the combined forces of the Teuthidans and the NYPD, who had been coerced into helping them find her.[10] Back with her group, Gwen devised a plan to defeat the Teuthidans, which consisted on luring them to Times Square and violently deal with them while distracting the entire NYPD with countless of false crime reports. Her plan was thwarted by none other than Vincent, who condemned the disregard for peace and order in Gwen's plan, and intended to hand her over to the aliens so they would leave, which he believed to be a much more peaceful option. Refusing, Gwen shot him in the face, revealing that he was a Doombot.[11] Gwen tried to further retaliate against Vincent with no success, for which she was force to retreat. Once back in their base, Gwen and Cecil were having trouble trying to make a new plan when they discovered a group of other grunt agents of M.O.D.O.K. living in the headquarters.[12]

Gwen Poole has little regard for any lives aside from her own, property damage, or anything that transpires that doesn't affect her directly. This is a consequence of Gwen inhabiting a universe she believes is entirely fictional, for which she thinks the world is ruled by storytelling devices and tropes.[2]
