As a child, Gwen watched her father walk off every morning, ready to take on the world. Every day she feared for his life. Eventually, her father was appointed to Commissioner, and they were able to move out of their apartment, into a big home, which she wasn't very fond of. She wanted a humble life, rather than the one she was getting.
She began getting a lot more things than she needed. When she tried to complain, her parents brushed it off as child nonsense. It wasn't long until he was running for mayor of the City. This enraged Gwen, knowing if he won, they would be under constant hassle by the city.
After her father lost the running and was not elected mayor, a little stress was taken off of Gwen's shoulders. She started going to High School, where she had trouble making friends. However, she also began taking gymnastics and martial arts classes. She made a few friends there, but none of them went to her school. However, she eventually met Harry Osborn, and the two of them became good friends.
When another ballad came around, her father won the race and was elected mayor. This pushed her over the edge, and she decided it was time to act. She made an alternate identity for herself as the Black Cat, and she began stealing from the rich families, including her own, and giving the jewels and money to the poor and under-privileged.
