John Jonah Jameson starting his long newspaper career with the Daily Bugle as a cub reporter while still in high school.

When the Daily Bugle came close to financial collapse Jameson used his personal assets and inheritance to purchase the newspaper. Turning the paper's fortunes around, Jameson built a publishing empire expanding into magazine publishing.

Jameson is known for his editorial crusades against masked vigilantes, Spider-Man in particular which he considers more of a menace than a benefit to society
