History: (Web of Spider-Man I#40 (fb) ) - The Cushing's second daughter was nearly named Tracy by her parents (big fans of Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn) before they named her Kathryn, instead.

(Web of Spider-Man I#40 (fb) ) - When she was 18, Kate Cushing watched her sister Tracy sink into depression, fall prey to a cult, and ultimately abandon her family to be with them. Kate felt powerless, and later became a journalist so she could have power - the power of the press.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#138 (fb) ) - At some point in her journalism career, Kate won a Pulitzer.

(Web of Spider-Man I#5) - Kate Cushing was hired as the Daily Bugle's new city editor to replace Joe Robertson, who had been promoted to editor-in-chief. She was introduced to photographer Peter Parker; she wasn't terribly impressed by the quality of his work, which she found mediocre, but recognized that he was good at being in the right place at the right time. She assigned him to take pictures of the peace talks at the Schavian Embassy. Later that day, Dr. Octopus invaded the Bugle, taking its staff, including Kate, hostage. He demanded that Kate alert the media, letting them know that he had challenged Spider-Man to battle. She did so, but ninety minutes later, the wall-crawler hadn't turned up. After another hour had passed, Peter called into the Bugle; Kate appraised him of the situation, and he hung up. Octavius' patience had worn out, however, and he took Kate hostage and departed for his hideout, where he tied her to a chair. Spider-Man tracked Ock down, and defeated him, freeing Kate. Later, at the Bugle, she appraised Parker's photos, which were the only pictures anyone had taken of the conference...but which had been taken from behind a mesh screen, making them useless. She opted to run Lance Bannon's photo instead, and dismissed Parker.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#270) - Joe introduced Kate to Bugle publisher  J. Jonah Jameson; impressed with her resume, Jameson welcomed her to the Bugle. Kate reciprocated by grabbing his cigar out of his mouth and breaking it in half, asking him to "refrain from smoking these disgusting things" in her presence. Hearing that Spider-Man was involved in a battle with Firelord downtown, Kate manned her desk; Jameson suggested that she call Parker for photos, which she promised to consider, despite her middling opinion of Parker's work.

(Web of Spider-Man I#11) - Cushing and Robertson discussed a neighborhood watch movement inspired by Peter Parker's encounter with some street thugs. Intending to avoid promoting vigilantism, they decided to bury the story.

(Web of Spider-Man I#12) - Jameson called Cushing and Robertson into a meeting, where he berated them over the Times scooping them on a story about the Parker incident. She watched as the two men had a heated argument over the Bugle's policy on vigilantes.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#273) - Cushing called a meeting to discuss investigating the shadowy finances of the Cult of Cosmic Oneness. Overlooking Parker, she assigned Ned Leeds and Lance Bannon to the story.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#111) - As she watched a news report on club owner Ralph Macchio, who blamed the Cult of Cosmic Oneness for his wife's death, Kate assigned Parker and reporter Joy Mercado to file a story on Macchio's club.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#112) - Kate asked for Robertson's help to stop Jameson from constantly hovering over her; he suggested that she just wait until Jameson was preoccupied with his new Now Magazine enterprise.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#113) - Learning that subway vigilante Ernie Popchik was a boarder at Parker's aunt's house, Kate assigned Parker and Mercado to cover him.

(Web of Spider-Man I#14) - Finding Robertson on the verge of giving Parker an advance, Cushing cut in, insisting that his output was too unpredictable to justify it. Joe deferred to her authority, and turned Peter down.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#278) - Cushing and Joe Robertson assigned Peter to conduct an interview with his friend Flash Thompson, who had been arrested under suspicion of being the Hobgoblin.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#115) - When Parker brought her a roll of unusable photos of a mugging (which Peter had deliberately ruined to prevent publicizing the victim's identity), Kate was upset. Nevertheless, as she was unable to find Lance Bannon, she assigned Peter to work with Joy Mercado on a story about a child abuse complaint filed by teacher Steven Alvarez. Parker later returned to Cushing with no photos of the confrontation between Alvarez and the alleged abuser, Fritz Woolcot, having intervened as Spider-Man instead; displeased, Cushing chewed Parker out for thirty minutes.

(Marvel Fanfare I#42/1) - Parker brought Cushing some unflattering photos of the Mayor - she was surprised at their quality, and offered him an assignment to photograph the British Prime Minister, who was coming in for a surprise meeting at the United Nations. When he asked for his check before he departed, Kate hollered for a page boy, Simon, to get Parker's check. Once he got it to her, she gave it to Parker (who had stopped to let Betty Brant repair his torn pants) and hustled him out the door.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#118) - When an explosion (caused by the abused boy, Alex Woolcot) went off in front of the Bugle offices, Kate saw Bannon dash off to the scene, and Parker dash off in the opposite direction.

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual I#6) - Kate admonished Parker for bringing her more cliched Spider-Man pictures, and instead asked him to bring her pictures of Ace.

(Amazing Spider-Man Annual I#20 - BTS) - Kate missed work due to a dentist appointment.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#283) - Cushing bought photos of a rampaging Titania from Parker; while she intended to run them in the paper, she still criticized his composition.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#125) - A passing Kate and Joe overheard Jameson ranting about the new Spider-Woman to Peter.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#284) - Cushing attended Ben Urich's presentation on the gang war currently erupting in New York City; afterwards, Parker offered her photos from a warehouse shootout the night before, but she turned him down, having already received pictures of the incident from Bannon.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#285) - Parker came to Kate with photos of another gang shootout, but she already had a stack of pictures from a variety of sources.

(Daredevil I#242) - Cushing argued with reporter Simon La Grange over his arrangement with the murderous Caviar Killer - she insisted that he had to give his idntity to the police, but he refused. Ben Urich joined them, insisting that the Bugle was irresponsible to keep giving the killer a mouthpiece. Kate sided with Ben, and had to restrain him when La Grange, addicted to the fame the Caviar Killer had brought him, vowed to take his story to the TV networks, instead. After La Grange stormed out, Kate agreed to call the police to tell them what the Bugle knew about the case.

(Spider-Man vs. Wolverine#1) - Cushing heaped effusive praise on Parker's photos of a murder scene, and ran them on the Bugle's front page.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#289) - Kate attended Ned Leeds' funeral.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#296) - Peter called Cushing to see if she had any work for him; she didn't, and informed him that they already had plenty of Spider-Man photos, so if he was going to take any more, they'd have to be spectacular. Later, Spider-Man, trying to draw out the escaped Dr. Octopus, came to Cushing's office, where he suggested that the Bugle run a fake article about Ock's psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Jefferson, publishing a tell-all book about the villain. Remembering her degrading experience as Ock's captive, Cushing agreed and ran the article. 

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#137) - Kate tried to get Robertson's attention, but found him distant and distracted - unbeknownst to her, due to the return of his longtime nemesis, Tombstone. He did manage to tell her to call Parker about an assignment on the new Tarantula and his targeting of Delvadian refugees. Unable to find Parker at home, she called his wife, Mary Jane, at work, and had her pass on the message.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#138) - Kate came in to Robertson's office to tell the overworked editor to go home. She asked what was troubling him, but he wouldn't tell her - but after she left, Kate found a file on Tombstone on his desk.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#303 - BTS) - Peter came to the Bugle, looking for an assignment; Cushing informed him that they'd needed a photographer half an hour ago, but the job had gone to Bannon.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#139) - Kate and Jonah discussed their concern for Joe Robertson.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#140) - Kate and the rest of the Bugle staff visited Joe in the hospital after he was attacked by Tombstone.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#142) - Kate, Jonah, and Urich visited Joe in the hospital to take down his story about the murders Tombstone had committed earlier in his career.

(Web of Spider-Man I#40) - When Parker came into her office, Kate greeted him sarcastically until he told her that Betty Leeds had fallen in with a cult, the Students of Love. She told Parker about her sister Tracy, and when he told her he had a clue to Betty's whereabouts, she loudly summoned Ben Urich and asked him to cover the story. She then dismissed Parker, waving off his suggestions that she cared...then called the police to report Betty missing once Parker had left.

(Web of Spider-Man I#41) - Kate passed by the Bugle's front desk, where she found Flash Thompson loudly arguing with the security guard about seeing her. Learning he was looking for Betty too, she let him in and introduced him to Urich so he could assist him, as the police had been no help.

(Web of Spider-Man I#42) - Urich and Parker presented the information they'd gathered on the Students of Love to Kate; Parker told her that Spider-Man had visited their farm, but she reacted angrily when Parker said that Spider-Man wasn't sure the Students warranted investigating (as Parker had been tricked by their leader's phony healing powers), and wouldn't give them the farm's location.

(Web of Spider-Man I#43) - Ben called Kate at home to tell her that the Students of Love's farm was only one town over from her home. She ordered him to drive down and pick her up so they could go there together. He did so, and she called the police en route before arriving to find the cult's compound in flames. They found Peter, Betty, and Flash had all gotten out safely, and Kate also learned that a woman named Tracy had been a member of the cult. She approached the woman, but found that the woman didn't recognize her. After telling Urich and Parker to get to work, she walked off, with tears in her eyes.

(Incredible Hulk II#346) - Cushing watched SHIELD agent Clay Quartermain testify before Congress on TV with Jameson and Parker.

(Amazing Spidr-Man Annual I#22/1) - Kate brought Jameson the results of the Bugle's daily opinion polls, which showed that the public approved of the vigilante murders the Bugle had falsely accused Spider-Man of. Much to her amusement, Jameson ordered her to put her reporters into action to prove Spider-Man's innocence.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#144) - Kate was present at the Bugle offices to welcome Joe back to work...and, unfortunately, to witness his arrest by federal marshals for obstruction of justice. 

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#146) - After approving a headline - POLTERGEISTS! - regarding the bizarre, supernatural forces that seemed to be overtaking New York City, Kate was publicly berated by Jameson, who considered the headline to be irresponsible; he suggested that it be changed to POLTERGEISTS?. Kate was embarrassed - especially because Jameson was right, but Glory Grant told her not to let Jameson get her down.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#147) - Wielding a jagged piece of debris, Kate helped defend the Bugle offices from a full-scale demonic attack alongside Spider-Man, Jameson, and the rest of the paper's staff.

(Web of Spider-Man I#48) - Cushing helped clean up the damaged Bugle offices, and ordered that the windows be barricaded to prevent further demonic incursions. She helped Spider-Man to his feet, but he left in a hurry, still hallucinating monstrous foes.

(Web of Spider-Man I#49) - While talking with Peter in her office, Kate got a call from Mary Jane, who (not knowing Kate's voice) asked her to get Peter on the phone - even though he was "in with that ice queen, Kate Cushing". She handed the phone over to Peter with her customary warmth. Later, Parker came to her with a proposal for a photo essay on a day in the life of a drug pusher. She accepted it, on the grounds that Peter could be killed in the process. When he gave her the resulting photos, she was very impressed, and suggested they could be Pulitzer-worthy.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#314 - BTS) - Peter came to see Cushing on Christmas Eve about a photo assignment, but she didn't have anything for him.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#149) - Joy called in to Kate from the courthouse where Joe was on trial, and told the editor that she thought he would be convicted. Kate ended the call, then talked to Glory about her new boyfriend. When Glory mentioned that he was Eduardo Lobo, a name Kate recognized as a notorious Texas gangster, she tried to warn Glory, but she was oblivious to Kate's concern.

(Web of Spider-Man I#50) - Kate reacted with surprise when Jameson told her to draw up a contract for sleazy paparazzo Nick Katzenberg.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#150) - Kate was present in the courtroom when Joe Robertson's guilty verdict was handed down. She left the courtroom to comfort Joe's wife, Martha. Later, at the Robertson home, she talked with Lance Bannon about "Jameson's" (secretly the Chameleon in disguise) odd behavior.

(Web of Spider-Man I#51) - Cushing apologized to Parker for her inability to buy his pictures - she explained that "Jameson" was only willing to buy pictures from Katzenberg now.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#151) - Kate was present in the Bugle offices when a frustrated Spider-Man assaulted "Jameson", and witnessed Glory's subsequent confession to stealing the Bugle's file on the Kingpin for Eduardo.

(Web of Spider-Man I#53) - Parker came to Cushing with news of an imminent assault on Fisk Tower by the Lobo Brothers and their gang; she doubted that "Jameson" would do anything about it, and lamented that he was treating her like a "glorified copy girl". True to form, he refused to run the story, then brushed Peter and Kate off to talk with Katzenberg. Fuming, she swore that if it weren't for her loyalty to Joe (who had been sent to jail for obstruction of justice), she would quit.

(Web of Spider-Man I#54) - Kate was present in the Bugle offices when Katzenberg came in reeking of onions and garlic.

(Amazing Spider-Man Annual I#23/1) - Cushing put on CNN in the Bugle offices, showing the staff a report on the Lemurian-abetted escape of the Abomination from custody. She assigned Mercado to cover it. Later, she and the rest of the Bugle's staff monitored the battle between Spider-Man, She-Hulk, and the mindless Abomination.

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual II#9/3) - Kate and some other Bugle staffers attended a surprise birthday party for Mary Jane.

(Spectacular Spidr-Man II#154) - Kate summoned Katzenberg for the returned Jameson; she was pleased to hear him berate him for the low quality of his pictures, but was unpleasantly surprised when Jameson singled out one picture for praise, and kept him on staff.

(Web of Spider-Man I#55) - While Jameson reviewed Parker and Katzenberg's photos of the same battle between Spider-Man and the Lobo Brothers, Kate gave him an ultimatum; if he printed Katzenberg's pictures, she'd quit. Unsurprisingly, Jameson went with Parker's.

(Web of Spider-Man I#56) - Jameson and his stockbroker walked past Kate as they discussed Thomas Fireheart's Bugle takeover bid.

(Web of Spider-Man I#57) - Kate saw Katzenberg take a call from the Rocket Racer meant for Parker, but by the time she realized what he was doing, it was too late to stop him. However, when Parker came in, she used Katzenberg's pad of paper to find out where he'd gone.

(Punisher War Journal I#14) - Peter called Cushing at the Bugle from Central Park, where he was watching Eric Hartmann's neo-Nazi rally. He asked Kate if she wanted pictures of it; when she mentioned Hartmann's name, Jameson grabbed the phone and demanded pictures.

(Punisher War Journal I#15) - As Kate handed over Peter's paycheck to Mary Jane, who had come to pick it up, the Bugle offices were stormed by Hartmann's neo-Nazi thugs, who took Kate, Mary Jane, and the other Bugle employees hostage. Before they could acquiesce to their demands, however, Spider-Man and the Punisher rescued them.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#157) - Jonah called Kate and the rest of the Bugle staff to a meeting, where he told his shocked employees that Thomas Fireheart had wrested control of the Bugle from him - effective immediately.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#326) - Preoccupied by the Fireheart situation, Kate brushed past Peter at the Bugle; later, she was among those Bugle staffers endangered when the villainous Graviton lifted the Bugle from its foundations, but was saved when Spider-Man defused the situation.

(Web of Spider-Man I#59) - Kate and the rest of the staff met with Fireheart, who presented them with his new pro-Spider-Man editorial direction. Kate suggested that his position was just as biased as Jameson's had been; he took her into his office to discuss it further, only for Titania to invade the Bugle offices, seeking Spider-Man. Hearing the commotion, Fireheart knocked Kate out so she wouldn't see him transform into the Puma.

(Web of Spider-Man I#60) - Katzenberg presented his photos of Spider-Man and Goliath (Josten) wrecking the Triboro Bridge to Cushing and Fireheart, but Fireheart refused to print them; when Nick appealed to Kate directly, she meekly agreed with Fireheart.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#161) - Kate was in attendance when Joe Robertson was granted a Presidential pardon, and attended the subsequent party at the Robertson home. She fled, along with the rest of the guests, when the Hobgoblin attacked, seeking to assassinate Joe.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#164) - The Kingpin's right-hand man, the Arranger, called the Bugle, offering an exclusive interview - but only if Peter Parker would photograph him. Kate called up Peter to offer him the job, and assigned Mercado to do the interview.

(Web of Spider-Man I#65) - Kate gathered outside the Daily Bugle after it had been lifted off its foundation again by Graviton; this time, the building was condemned.

(Web of Spider-Man I#71) - Kate assigned Peter to get pictures of a heavily-guarded witness against international criminal Simon Steele.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#173) - Kate attended the Bugle's Christmas party - now being run by Jameson again - and witnessed an altercation between Parker and Katzenberg.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#174) - Kate attended the dedication of the new Daily Bugle building, but felt uncomfortable because she'd stayed with the paper when several others, like Joe Robertson, Betty Leeds, and Peter Parker had sided with Jameson.

(Web of Spider-Man I#77) - Kate and a number of other Bugle staffers attended the grand reopening of the old Poseidon Hotel as a homeless shelter. When the floor collapsed, due to sabotage from Firebrand, Kate disappeared.

(Web of Spider-Man I#78) - Flash Thompson uncovered the unconscious Kate and Katzenberg from the rubble. Betty Brant put Kate's damaged arm in a makeshift sling, and helped her get to safety with the rest of the survivors. Later, back at the Bugle, she was present when Rose Palermo was given a new column at the paper.

(Spider-Man: Fear Itself) - Peter came to Kate to hustle up some work, but was distracted by whatever Jameson was yelling about in his office and left.

(Spider-Man Unlimited I#1/1) - The police called Kate at the Bugle to warn Jameson that Carnage had escaped from custody, as he had previously held Jameson hostage. After searching the entire building, she finally found him, and passed on the message.

(Spider-Man I#41 - BTS) - Cushing spearheaded an investigation into illicit weapons manufacturer ARMS (Alternative Resources Munitions Supply).

(Spider-Man I#41) - Late at night, Parker called Cushing at home to inquire about her ARMS files, only to be told in no uncertain terms to stay away from them, as the data had yet to be backed-up. Unbeknownst to Kate, Parker had already looked at them...and gotten them stolen by Iron Fist.

(Spider-Man I#43) - Kate witnessed Spider-Man and Iron Fist's battle with ARMS' armored Platoon warriors. After they triumphed, Kate interviewed Iron Fist about the incident.

(Spectcaular Spider-Man II#215) - Joe suggested to Kate that he pair Parker with new photographer Angela Yin on a story about missing china magnate Phillip Cussler. She deferred, as she hadn't been able to contact him for a week. Trying one more time, she did reach him at home; he declined the assignment, but requested more information on the Cussler case.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#225/1 - BTS) - Cushing assigned a Bugle staffer to write a sidebar on a convicted alderman.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#416 - BTS) - When the Bugle fell on hard times, Kate was laid off.

(Captain America 1999) - Having apparently been rehired at the Bugle, Kate attended an editorial meeting, at which the topic of reporters Sid Franken and Dan Davis and their pending Roxxon expose came up. Kate took their side, clashing with national desk editor Sam. Ultimately, Joe Robertson had the story put on ice until more evidence could be collected.

Comments: Created by Danny Fingeroth, Jim Mooney, and Bob Sharen.

Kate Cushing kind of filled a couple needed roles in Spider-Man's supporting cast - she was a female character who wasn't intended to be a potential love interest for Pete, and she was an antagonistic character who wasn't cartoonish (Jameson) or repulsive (Katzenberg).

It's left somewhat ambiguous as to whether "Sister Tracy" actually was Tracy Cushing or not. I'll err on the side of caution and assume it isn't her.

Kate has the '80s-est character design, from the shoulder-pad-bedecked power suits, to the giant Janine Melnitz glasses, to that haircut. She does show up without glasses, sometimes, so either they're just for reading, or she wears contacts, or she just wears them to look smarter.

Cushing's hair is mistakenly colored black in Daredevil I#242.

Kate's full first name has been spelled a number of ways - Kathryn, Katherine, and Katheryn. The Handbooks go with Kathryn, so I'm sticking with that.

After appearing in the Spider-books pretty consistently from 1985-1991, Kate's appearances became more infrequent until she was laid off from the Bugle. That didn't stop her from appearing in the 1999 Cap Annual, though - I guess she got rehired?

Kate Cushing has small profiles in the Spider-Man Encyclopedia and All-New OHotMU HC vol. 11: Spider-Man's Friends and Associates. Curiously, both profiles mention that Thomas Fireheart was attracted to Kate during his stint as Bugle owner, but I can't find any evidence of that in the actual comics. Maybe someone got Kate and the Puma confused with Glory Grant and Eduardo Lobo.
