J. Jonah Jameson's history is presumably similar to his Earth-616 counterpart's up to the point where Spider-Man first bonded to the Venom symbiote. For years, Jameson had a vendetta against Spider-Man, believing him to be a menace, and he felt it was now justified after learning that Spider-Man had killed the Hobgoblin. His editor Robbie Robertson was more skeptical and thought Hobgoblin's killer was a Spider-Man impersonator. Then Spider-Man flew through and broke Jameson's left hand before threatening him to end his smears of him or he would break Jameson's other hand.

Spider-Man's threat motivated Jameson to join forces with many of Spider-Man's old enemies and form the Sinister Six. While Jameson didn't like the criminals, he felt Spider-Man was a bigger threat than any of them.[1]

Jameson and the Sinister Six planned to lure Spider-Man out in a remote location. They were surprised when Eddie Brock took Doctor Octopus' place on the team after killing him so he could kill Spider-Man after blaming him for the wrongs in his life. When Spider-Man arrived at the location after getting it out of Beetle, he battled the Sinister Six and killed three of their members. Jameson then deployed a remotely-piloted Spider-Slayer Mark V and forced Spider-Man in a burning barn.[2]

Jameson was about to kill Spider-Man, but he was convinced to help Spider-Man after he was convinced he killed because of his black suit and learned that Spider-Man was Peter Parker. After knocking out Kraven the Hunter, Jameson took Spider-Man to his apartment and told him that his suit likely died in the barn fire. Then Jameson learned from Black Cat when Spider-Man killed the Kingpin, he made sure that the world learned that Spider-Man was Peter Parker and was now wanted by the NYPD.[3]
