Amazing Spider-Man #204-205
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #204, Amazing Spider-Man #205
She's totally psycho, completely obsessed with Spider-Man.
Spidey convinces her to see a doctor.
Once again in these issues, we see the Black Cat's bad luck powers.
Later we'll find out she's just been rigging things up in advance, but i'm not sure how that explains Spidey's webshooters locking up. Maybe she also takes credit for random bad things that happen, or maybe she really did have latent bad luck powers.
Meanwhile, J. Jonah Jameson is wandering the streets of Manhattan without any memory and Robbie Robertson is getting as cranky and mean as JJ used to be. This will turn out to be due to the manipulations of Dr. Jonas Harrow.
And Peter catches one of his students, who had been flirting with him and who he turned down a date with because of the teacher-student relationship, trying to break into his file cabinets to get to the exams.

When Marv Wolfman quit Marvel, he left a number of two-parters unfinished, including this one. Instead of letting Marv finish his contracted pages, Marvel applied his accumulated vacation and sick pay to them and then refused to accept freelance work from him. Marv refused to accept the smaller plot-only pay for the 2nd halves, so other writers had to finish everything from scratch. Marv was, putting it mildly, extremely displeased over this.
