Quote1 Rrrrgh... Bodega Bandit. You are the worst arch-nemesis -- ever. Quote2
-- Spider-Woman src

The Bodega Bandit was a burglar, stopped numerous times by Spider-Woman. During one encounter, after stealing the register from a restaurant called Dollar Dog, Spider-Woman threw him into a dumpster.[3]

When Bodega Bandit tried to rob the Dollar Dog again, his pet dog, Bandito, was attacked and eaten by the Lizard. Spider-Woman confronted him in his dumpster over the Lizard's attack, but backed off upon realizing his dog was dead.[4] She later gave him her pet hamster, Pine Cone, as a replacement.[5]

  • The Bodega Bandit is based on the McDonalds mascot "The Hamburgler," even using the Hamburgler's catchphrase after robbing a burger joint.[1]
  • The Bodega Bandit's identity is unknown, but is speculated to be John Jonah Jameson III, a former astronaut who suffered a mental breakdown after returning from a space flight. Alternatively, he and his fellow Bunch of Bandits are speculated to be the same person - the avatar of a cosmic entity with a strange sense of humor.[2]
