Amazing Spider-Man #82
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #82
Peter is broke so he tries to get a gig on a talk show, but Electro, who works as an electrician on the set, gets paid by JJ to attack Spider-Man.
Robbie and Captain Stacy realize what JJ did and that it was wrong (and probably illegal) but they don't do anything about it. Spider-Man defeats Electro by making his hands touch his feet, which somehow creates a short-circuit.
There's a great scene where Peter has to wash his costume in a public laundromat, and wears a bag on his head to disguise his identity.

This was during the period when Marvel finally got their periods to print correctly instead of vanishing half the time, so issues like this are minus exclamation points in dialogue just to show this off.
This story was supposed to be included in the first "Origins of Marvel Comics" book but got bumped due to space, leaving a confusing reference in Stan Lee's introduction.
