J. Jonah Jameson is a side character in Marvel's Spider-Man. A former newspaper publisher at the Daily Bugle, he hosts the radio show Just the Facts in New York City, on which he notoriously slanders Spider-Man. Jameson is voiced by Darin de Paul.
Jameson spent much of his career building the Daily Bugle into what it is today: the premiere New York City newspaper. His fearlessness for compelling journalism earned him multiple top national accolades, including the Pulitzer Prize award, and a prestigious book deal. After decades of leadership as the Daily Bugle's publisher, he turned his attention to podcasts, vowing to continue delivering his trademarked brand of gutsy news to the citizens of New York.
It is known that he bankrolled the experiment that created the Scorpion in order to create an anti-Spider-Man.
Since leaving the Bugle, Jameson has begun his own podcast called Just the Facts with J. Jonah Jameson, and can constantly be heard over the radio providing his commentary to recently completed missions and side missions. Here he takes the role of a conspiracy theorist, airing his own uncensored, unsubstantiated, personal views on what he feels is wrong with the city. His statements are often open attacks on Spider-Man, such as blaming him for the chaotic fallout from Kingpin's arrest, or clear publicity attempts. Jameson employs an assistant called Jared; though he is never seen or heard, Jameson frequently yells at him during his podcasts, either belittling him for his supposedly poor work or scolding him for correcting one of his mistakes while on the air.
Jameson's podcasts continue during the Hammerhead crisis in The City That Never Sleeps DLC campaign. A number of his podcasts indicate that Jameson is now struggling financially, as he is unable to afford an ambulance ride.
While not physically in the game, part of Jameson's upper body can be seen when his radio show comes on, as well as on billboards around the city. He appears to have a gray and white, squared haircut with a dark gray mustache across his upper lip.
Jameson is a self-righteous conspiracy theorist whose opinion of Spider-Man is extremely low, constantly lambasting him at any opportunity and often coming up with outlandish theories to try and discredit the hero. He stubbornly believes that Spider-Man is nothing more than an attention-seeker who is more harmful than helpful for New York. He comes off as very close-minded and biased, frequently ignoring any information that goes against his views, and deeming any supporter of Spider-Man a "lost cause". He believes that the superhero should either reveal his true identity and join the police force, or just let them "do their job".
J. Jonah Jameson was introduced in the first issue of the Amazing Spider-Man series (March 1963).
