J. Jonah Jameson is owner of the Daily Bugle.


J. Jonah Jameson was raised as a child by David and Betty Jameson. David was an officer of the United States Army, a war veteran decorated as a hero; at home, however, David regularly abused his wife and son. As a result, J. Jonah Jameson grew convinced that "No one's a hero every day of the week" and "Even the real heroes can't keep it up all the time."

It was later clarified that David Jameson was in fact Jonah's stepfather, and the brother of J. Jonah Jameson Sr., Jonah's biological father, who had to leave his son behind for undisclosed reasons. It's unknown if Jameson remembered him.

Hobgoblin RisingEdit

Jonah is looking for a new freelance photographer to do the job Peter Parker did back when he was a freelancer.


He buys photos of Spider-Man off of Drew Michaels acting in similar fashion to how he did with Peter.

The Longest NightEdit

He informed Drew Michaels that his brother had been killed by the Lizard. He decided to honor A.J. Michaels on the front page of the Bugle for his heroism.
