Amazing Spider-Man #93
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #93
He doesn't like Spider-Man's intrusion on his civilian life, but he's talking about the need to continue to be Spider-Man because he needs "the excitement -- and the action -- and the danger". What happened to great power, great responsibility?
His rejection of Gwen causes her to travel to England to live with her uncle.
Meanwhile, the Prowler hears about Spider-Man's supposed killing of Captain Stacy and remembers that Spidey asked him to pose as Spider-Man and lurk outside Captain Stacy's window. He wonders if this means he was somehow an unwitting accomplice in Stacy's murder and he goes after Spider-man for revenge.
Spider-Man beats him and brings him to the hospital but not in time to stop Gwen from leaving.

If I recall correctly from Marvel Essentials, Sal Buscema inked this issue. Mortellaro did backgrounds.

The UHBMCC lists Romita and Mortellaro as the inkers. I'm sure Mortellaro did the backgrounds as usual. Was the info in Essentials an update/correction?

"It's as though Fate itself is conspiring to keep me from Gwen!"
"Fate" in the form of bad, bad writing, apparently.

When I first read this when I was younger, I was stunned at the way this issue ended, with Peter too late to stop Gwen from taking off on the airplane. I was, like, "Holy cow, she's gone! Gwen's gone!" And I thought she wasn't coming back, though I was relieved when she returned a few issues later. I've always preferred Gwendy over MJ.
