History

Joseph "Robbie" Robertson was Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Bugle, the newspaper at which Peter Parker worked and sold his photographs of Spider-Man.[1]

Unlike the Bugle's volatile Publisher, J. Jonah Jameson, Robbie tried his best to remain objective towards Spider-Man instead of automatically assuming he was a criminal.[citation needed]

Joseph Robertson was married to Martha, and his son Randy "Rand" Robertson attended Midtown High School with Peter Parker.[citation needed]

At one point, he surreptitiously approved Ned Lee's idea of investigating Spider-Man's secret identity, even though Jameson felt this would make him an "average Joe" and thus less interesting to the readers.[2]

Robbie Robertson later allowed Ned Lee to pursue a similar investigation into the Green Goblin.[citation needed]
