In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, we learn that Kingpin wants to find a replacement for his wife Vanessa and son Richard by using their DNA in the machine that opens holes into other universes. (He uses a hair from a comb that gets put into the machine.)

But when Peter Parker as Spider-Man is fighting during the machine power up his head is pushed into the beam, which I assume was the reason why other spideys were pulled here because they share the same (close enough) DNA. Including Peni Parker (which could be a distant future relative in her universe, and even Spider-Ham (Peter Porker, which I'll accept as being close enough in his animal universe).

But as far as Gwen, Spider-Woman, how was she pulled into Mile's universe?

We learn that her Peter Parker was killed long before, so why did a portal/hole open up near her? When she would not share any DNA with Peter at all?

It can't just be the randomness we see from other universes, because we would have to assume there would be other (normal) people pulled in as well, not just spideys.

Maybe I missed something, but it just seems like they glossed over a valid reason.

  • Same spider DNA? – jejorda2 Jan 14 at 21:43

They share the DNA of the irradiated spider, which is why they were pulled from their respective universes. It's the one thing they all have in common and is why Doc Ock (Or Liv, if you are friendlier with her than I am) says that the fact these extra spider people are here proves her theory will work to retrieve Fisk's wife and son from another universe.

  • You are probably right. I've just downloaded the screenplay from Sony here, so I'll take a look first and see if there's anything else. – BlueGI Jan 15 at 18:37

    I'm going to accept this as an answer. Though speculative, it makes sense due to the conversation you mention as well as all the intros where the spidey's say "I was bitten...", etc. – BlueGI Jan 16 at 16:52
