Seemingly those of the J. Jonah Jameson of Earth-616.


  • Voiced by J.K. Simmons, who portrayed the same character in the original Spider-Man movie trilogy.
  • This version of Jameson initially never appeared in person, he was only seen through a screen in his early appearances.
  • This version of Jameson is likely to blame Spider-Man for any disaster no matter whether he is involved or not. This is shown when Ego is defeated by S.M.A.S.H. and Jameson claims that Spider-Man's plot had been foiled despite the fact he never appeared in the episode.
