John Jameson (Earth-78327)

John Jameson is bitten by the radioactive spider. As was the case in the previous two stories, Parker obtains the spider. John's father Jonah Jameson learns of his son's new powers and immediately starts to endorse him in his paper and encourages him to become a crime fighter. John agrees and dons a costume and a jet pack. Like Flash Thompson he does not develop web shooters, and when the runaway space capsule falls to Earth, he relies solely on his jet pack to slow its decent. Unfortunately, the pack is not strong enough to slow the capsule's fall and he is crushed beneath it.

Notes

  • After the end of the three stories, it is explained that no matter who was bitten by the spider, Parker uses the spider's remaining venom to develop a serum that grants him spider powers and he dons the mantle of Spider-Man.
  • At the end of the three stories, the three heroes' careers had came to a sudden end; Flash and John's deaths and Betty's decision of giving up being Spider-Girl after the death of Ben Parker.
  • Out of all three spider heroes of each story, Betty is the only one used web shooters, whereas Flash did not have any and John only used a jet-pack.
  • Betty Brant giving up her identity as Spider-Girl homages Spider-Man No More!
