In all the various incarnations of Spider-Man two performances of J. Jonah Jameson stand out among the rest, Ed Asner in the 90s cartoon and J.K. Simmons in the Sam Rami films. It’s not just the performance of the actors however. In both versions Jolly Jonah is also written as a bit more complex that “Spider-Man: Threat Or Menace”. He’s an antagonist for both Spidey and to a lesser extent Peter but is he at villain level? Author Caroline Furlong doesn’t seem to think so, at least not when done right.
