Amazing Spider-Man Vol.1 #32


The Master Planner, who has been running experiments and stealing radioactive material, is actually Doctor Octopus. Meanwhile, Peter Parker is delivering new photos for The Daily Bugle when he’s spotted by Betty Brant. Peter is conflicted by the fact that she loves him but hates Spider-Man and he decides the best thing is to make her angry so she forgets about him. Ned Leeds tries to reason with Peter, but he shoves Ned aside and to not burden Betty with his secret.
