Throughout his career, Spider-Man�s major nemesis has not been Dr Octopus, the Green Goblin, the Kingpin or any other conventional super-foe, but J. Jonah Jameson, editor-publisher of the New York Daily Bugle - a newspaper which has run a campaign against Spider-Man (and other masked vigilantes) that has often turned the public against superheroes. Initially annoyed that Spider-Man got more acclaim than his astronaut son, whom he wanted to boost as �a real hero�, Jameson�s hatred of Peter Parker�s alter ego has grown into an overpowering obsession which has threatened his health and business. Ironically, he is also Parker�s most frequent employer, buying the freelance photographer�s blurry, out of focus shots of Spider-Man in action for the front page � and paying as little as possible for them.
FIRST APPEARED IN AMAZING SPIDER-MAN # 1 (1963)
