Captain of the New York Police Department
|Behind the scenes|
The Amazing Spider-Man (mentioned only)
Captain Stacy appears in The Amazing Spider-Man as the man leading the investigation into Spider-Man's vigilantism. However, too eager to capture and put Spidey behind bars, he does not believe that Dr. Curt Connors has been turned into a giant lizard. His daughter starts to date Peter Parker, a boy going to her school. He and Peter got into an argument with each other while they were eating with his wife, Gwen and his sons. Peter believed that Spider-Man was innocent of his crimes while George believed him to be nothing more than a masked vigilante. This caused Peter to leave the house because he felt the Captain was slandering Spider-Man's name.
Later, Stacy almost walked in on Peter and his daughter in her room; Stacy asked Gwen if she wanted a snack, only to hear her refusal. She was acting strange, but Stacy decided not to worry about it.
Captain Stacy and his fellow officers went to stop the Lizard atop Oscorp Tower, only to be joined by Spider-Man. Spider-Man's mask came off, revealing to Stacy that he is Peter Parker, but, suddenly, the Lizard struck Stacy with its sharp claws, wounding him. As he lay, dying, he made one final remark to Peter: he asked him to promise to stop seeing his daughter for her own safety. Peter initially agrees to it, but realizes that it's a promise that cannot be kept. George's death is what led Gwen to develop a bitter hatred towards Connors for killing him, and Connors, being placed in an asylum for his crimes, seems to hold some genuine regret for killing the captain.
- Stacy (along with Alistaire Smythe) was one of the few people to know Spider-Man's true identity before he died. The others are his daughter and Connors.
