I don't think "damsel in distress' is the right way to describe this behavior.
But I agree, in the first film she was the typical damsel, whereas in the second, she was only taken in the end. In the third, Harry used her as leverage to get to Peter initally, but considering the initial plan was to make Gwen be the target at the end after she was already in trouble, I'd say she would have out-damseled MJ in SM3.
