I was looking for an image to use for the avatar contest, and stumbled across the Wikipedia page on Gwen Stacy. It says that there is a controversy regarding what was the actual cause of her death, the "shock of the fall" or Spider-Man's web causing her to stop too suddenly, breaking her neck.
Is there really any doubt that it was a broken neck caused by the webline catching her? I know that there are going to be those who say "yes", but is this view really prevalent enough to call in a controversy? There's even that little "snap" sound effect at the crucial moment.
Yes, Green Goblin says a little later something like a person would die from a fall from that height before hitting anything anyway, but that doesn't even make sense in context, and he's hardly a reliable witness here.
Why do you think?
