History: (Amazing Spider-Man III#1/1) - The White Rabbit recruited Panda-Mania into her new animal-themed team, the Menagerie (along with the Hippo and Skein, the latter of whom refused to return to her old Gypsy Moth alias, despite the theme). Together, they stole a fortune in Faberge eggs from an auction house at 49th Street and 6th Avenue. As they escaped into the street, Spider-Man appeared to foil their plot. Panda-Mania and Hippo hefted cars to blockade the street, preventing the cops from following them, but Spider-Man took down the others in rapid succession, leaving only Panda-Mania. As she tried to run away, Spider-Man wrangled her with webbing and webbed her up with her comrades.
(Amazing Spider-Man Annual III#1/1) - Panda-Mania and the Menagerie stole a fortune in gems from the Diamond District - almost more than even Panda-Mania could carry. As they fled from the scene of the crime, they ran right into Spider-Man. In a hurry to return a missing cellphone (long story), Spider-Man punched out Panda-Mania and made quick work of the rest of the Menagerie, leaving them webbed to the street.

So the panda is not exactly the most fearsome of animals, but it's scarier than a white rabbit or gypsy moth, I guess. Hippos are friggin' terrifying, though.
