The Amazing Spider-Man #079 (1969)
“To Prowl No More!”
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: John Buscema
Storyarc with The Prowler concludes. The story picks up with Peter falling out of the window. He quickly changes into Spider-Man and battles the Prowler. The Prowler narrowly beats Spider-Man with his gas pellets and runs away before the fight can continue. The Prowler decides that he can make a name for himself by defeating Spider-man and lures him into another fight by breaking into a diamond shop. Spider-Man is victorious this time, unmasks The Prowler and has Hobie tell him why he turned to crime. Realizing that Hobie is just a confused kid, much like himself, he lets him go and webs away. The Gwen story is furthered by Peter seeing Gwen on his way to class and telling her off for the Flash incident.
