Believing Dr. Spencer Smythe to be another crackpot inventor who wished to waste his valuable time, Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson was prepared to show him the door - until free-lance photographer Peter Parker convinced Jameson he had nothing to lose in allowing Smythe to demonstrate his robot designed to capture Spider-Man.
Feeling cocky, Parker believed Smythe's invention to be a less than prodigious automaton which he could use to turn the tables on Jameson and embarrass him once again as Spider-Man while simultaneously earning a tidy profit from photographs of the battle to come. Only by using his knowledge of science and computerized robotics was Spider-Man capable of escaping the first of many encounters with a Spider-Slayer.
