Although Gwenpool art was first seen on the Chris Bachalo variant cover of Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2 (above), the first appearance of Gwenpool (Gwen Poole) was in this issue, in a story entitled "Ms. Poole If You're Nasty (part one of three)", written by Chris Hastings, with interior art by Danilo Beyruth.
In her first panel, Gwenpool steals a pen from atop a motorbike en route to a bigger heist on a rooftop...
The pen comes in handy but Gwenpool ends up hurtling off the side of the building..
As Black Cat recounts the story of the thieving "pantsless arctic ninja", something lurks under Howard's desk...
