Amazing Spider-Man #242-243
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #242, Amazing Spider-Man #243
The couple make up, and Mary Jane Watson returns to Peter's life and the cast of the book.
The villain of this arc is the awesome Mad Thinker...
...who decides to investigate what he's heard about Spider-Man.
While still in prison, he mentally activates on of his battle-droids.
Spider-Man is able to destroy the robot in issue #242 (but the Thinker is able to confirm that Spider-Man has a Spider-Sense)...
...leaving issue #243 mainly as a downtime issue, although Spidey does stop some revolutionaries from holding a church hostage.
In addition to Mary Jane coming back, the big news is that Peter Parker decides to quit grad school.
Between being Spider-Man and being a photographer, going to school is just too much for him.

A notebook on Ben Urich's desk reads "Bob Camp(phone #)-re:Axe Murder". Bob Camp was an inker on the Conan titles and other places around this time, but I don't know if "axe" refers to anything special.
I hate these issues only because they brought Mary Jane back. They should have just kept her as the bitch that turned down Peter marriage proposal
Grad school must not have agreed with Peter - he looks like he's on death's door in that last panel!
