Return of the Father

J. Jonah Jameson Sr. met Spider-man for the first time when he was standing as a juror in a trial against a mob boss. The jury was being transported to the courthouse by subway when the train was derailed in an attack by the Shocker. Spider-man took down the bad guy, but structural damage to the tunnel left the group of survivors in a perilous state. At this point Jameson introduced himself to the web-crawler and apologized for the actions of his son, vitriolic newspaperman, J. Jonah Jameson.

During their escape from the tunnel. JJ Sr. confided that his son's stepfather was the cigar smoking military man that raised him to be who he is today.  Quietly he added that JJJ's stepfather was actually JJ Sr's brother.  JJJ Sr left the country while JJJ Jr was a child. Upon escaping from the tunnels, JJJ Sr disappeared before his son could get a chance to speak with him. However soon afterwards, Jonah met his son again. At first, Jonah junior was angry beyond believe and wanted nothing to do with his father. Soon hower, the father and son worked out their differences and, although Jonah still had some grudge against his father.
