First Name[edit]

Where did that "James" originate from?

Likewise "John". Anyone know? As the Marvel profile is user-edited, I'm not sure it's valid as a source. MultipleTom (talk) 21:51, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Gotta find an issue with the name. Those handbooks can't be trusted... MultipleTom (talk) 23:59, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
Stan Lee tweeted it was "Jeremiah" (tweet) on December 15th 2010. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.3.62.195 (talk) 00:54, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Ultimate Jameson?[edit]

Anyone got info on Ultimate J. Jonah Jameson? Scorp Stanton 03:42, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

The Ultimate version is more or less the same, except his hatred of vigilantes stems from his son's death during a flight mission, I believe as an astronaut. The government would not give him the details, as they were classified. Since then, he seems to have dedicated himself to revealing the truth. I could cite some issues when I get home. 192.251.125.85 11:36, 22 March 2007 (UTC)


Possible Inspiration?[edit]

Jameson's mannerism is very similar to Henry Cameron in Ayn Rand's "the fountainhead." Since Ditko is a well known Ayn Rand fanatic, it is worth looking into that character as a possible influence.

I seem to recall reading that Jameson was modeled on Jack Kirby. HandsomeMrToad (talk) 08:46, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Some recent fan have actually liked Jameson with Adolf Hitler and not just because of the Hitler mustache. See Jameson was portrayed as a victim of child abuse by his father in the mainstream Marvel storylines, and Adolf Hitler was said to be abused by his Father Alois Hitler. And they both have persecute groups of people, while Jameson mostly directs his attention on Spider-Man, he has persecute other super-powered individuals in his newspaper and in his career as a Newspaper Editor and Media figure as especially those wearing Masks. It's kinda looks similar to how Hitler was known to bad mouth Jews/Hebrews, Romani people/Roma/Gypsies and other "Non-Germans" During WWII and in his speeches.--110.159.187.245 (talk) 13:26, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Maria Lopez[edit]

Did Jameson really have a relationship with a television reporter named Maria Lopez, or was that just something the newspaper comics made up? --DanMat6288 (talk) 03:40, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

In so far as Jameson can "really" do anything, it wasn't in the comics, but you're welcome to add this information about the newspaper incarnation of the character. MultipleTom (talk) 21:51, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

JJJ and "Mr. Drysdale"[edit]

MILBURNE DRYSDALE was played by Raymond Bailey on the 1960s television series, The Beverly Hillbillies. Drysdale was Jed Clempett's banker and a notorious skinflint who would become hysterical if Jed ever mentioned taking his millions out of Drysdale's Commerce Bank. Stan Lee may have been influenced by this character when scripting JJJ's dialogue because some of JJJs comments about giving an employee "...a key to the executive washroom!" instead of a raise were lifted straight from the then-popular sitcom! Moreso, there were even similarities between the physical appearance of the two characters, including their mutual appreciation for cigars...MARK VENTURE (talk) 18:16, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Category: Fictional Goat.[edit]

This category is of course citing Earth X...but I don't believe it's notable enough example for that category IMO. Jhenderson 777 20:16, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:J. Jonah Jameson/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

I'd like to point out that Marvels is not in continuity, as events take place by the rationale that they happened on the comics' cover dates - e.g., the Fantastic Four's origin takes place in 1961. By today's continuity, the FF's origin takes place in the 90s, and J. Jonah Jameson was definitely not around in the 30s!
