* BadassMustache: For much of his history, Jameson rocked a pencil moustache in the vein of Charlie Chaplain and Adolf Hitler -- even [[ArchEnemy Mac Gargan]] was impressed that Jameson had the balls to rock a Hitler stache. Jameson eventually shaved it off and grew it out after getting a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and DeathGlare from Captain America.

* FutureLoser: Ends up as one according to Miguel O'Hara, the Spider-Man of the year 2099. While Spider-Man ends up becoming a legendary figure, Jameson ends up a forgotten nobody who gets lost in obscurity.


* DeadpanSnarker: She seems to like sarcastic humor and Peter is usually target of her jokes.
* GenkiGirl: She has a spontanious and outgoing personality, often bringing a smile to the people she meets.

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: JerkWithAHeartOfGold: On his better days. Sure, he's short-tempered, tight-fisted, and an often obnoxious loudmouth, but he's also been shown as a tireless crusader supporting everything from labor union rights to mutant rights, going after organized crime figures and corrupt politicians despite repeated attempts on his life, and discreetly supporting various charities and social projects, and even hiring a good lawyer for Peter Parker when Parker was falsely accused of murder. He's been pretty much consistently portrayed as a social liberal whose ideals are wrapped in civil liberty and constitutional rights. despite the fact that he's a mean-spirited douche to the people around him.
** In the arc where Spider-Man publicly unmasked himself as Peter Parker,
Jameson fluctuates between went so far as to refer to Parker as being like a son to him, and that he had always regarded Parker as the two extremes DependingOnTheWriter."last honest guy in town". What does Jameson do next? Turns around and sues the crap out of Parker for misrepresentation. Of course, he wasn't entirely unjustified in doing this; he was also later confronted by other characters about how much of a jerk he'd been to Spider-Man / Peter over the years.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: On his worse days, especially when written by Creator/StanLee, who preferred to depict Jonah as a {{Jerkass}} [[TheScrooge Scrooge]] who feels that appearing to have a heart of gold is the best way to make money. To drive this home, he was once offered a deal: if he stopped bashing Spidey every time he needed an editorial, he'd get an exclusivity deal with the ComicBook/NewAvengers. He even got to hear ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' tell him Spidey was a hero rather than a monster. His response? After shaking hands on the deal, he promptly went back to not only committing libel, but making accusations of bribery and digging up things like "wanted murderer" (Wolverine), "terrorist" (Spider-Woman) and "convicted drug dealer" (Luke Cage, who was framed and ''exonerated'').

** In ''ComicBook/XFactor2006'' Issues #216-219, it is revealed that Jameson, along with his friend General Sam Ryan and Dr Young Soo Pock, founded SCARs, a secret military program in which three women where transformed into {{Cyborg}} {{Super Soldier}}s for black ops missions. Unfortunately, the cybernetics drove two of the women mad, requiring them to be mindwiped. After regaining their memories they planned to assassinate Jameson but were foiled by the ComicBook/BlackCat and X-Factor Investigations. Unlike the above examples, this one had nothing to do with Jameson trying to defeat Spider-Man and was actually done before the Wall-Crawler became a superhero.

* BreakTheHaughty: Given what a pain in the ass he is, it goes without saying that over the years, he has received countless stories that've dropped a ton or two of karmic bricks on him.

* CreateYourOwnVillain: Jameson's vendetta against Spider-Man has resulted in him creating some actual villains of his own:
** Jameson hired [[MadScientist Spencer Smythe]] to create a series of robots called the Spider-Slayers for the purpose of capturing and unmasking Spider-Man. Ultimately, Smythe ended up poisoned by the radioactive materials used in the manufacturing of the robots. Blaming both Jameson and Spider-Man for his impending demise, he tried to kill them using an explosive device. Fortunately, Spider-Man's technical expertise allowed him and Jameson to escape and Smythe died without getting his revenge.
** Jameson convinced a private investigator named Mac Gargan to undergo a science experiment conducted by Dr. Harley Stillwell. Gargan was transformed into the Scorpion and Jameson ordered him to capture and unmask Spider-Man. While the Scorpion proved to be more than a match for Spider-Man, [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity the experiments drove him mad]] and he turned on Jameson requiring Spider-Man to intervene and save the editor's life.
*** An escaped prisoner named Richard Deacon overheard Jameson asking Harlan Stillwell, the younger brother of the aforementioned Harley Stillwell to make a new superhero. Deacon ordered Harlan to transform him into the Human Fly at gunpoint and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness then killed the doctor after he was done.]] The Human Fly then kidnapped Jameson requiring Spider-Man to once again save Jameson from a mess he'd made.

** Jonah commissioned the creation of the Scorpion and the Fly, both of whom went on to become supervillains who have terrorized the city. Additionally, [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed & Susan Richards']] second child was stillborn because when Reed was retrieving Dr. Octopus, the only man who could help Susan give birth, one of Jonah's anti-Spiderman billboards caused the currently-medicated Dr. to suffer a psychotic relapse, delaying his arrival and causing the baby to die.

* JerkassHasAPoint: In #39, Jameson argues that Spider-Man is at least in part responsible for being a HeroWithBadPublicity. While most other superheroes tend to work in teams and communities and are fairly open with the public, Spider-Man is usually a lone wolf and frequently gets into fights with other superheroes before teaming up with them (though as Peter points out, this is very common for other Marvel superheroes). Furthermore, whenever Jameson made a false accusation against Spider-Man, the Wall-Crawler's response was never to reach out and set the record straight but rather to insult, antagonize and sometimes even ''threaten'' Jameson. [[NotHelpingYourCase Not a good luck if you're trying to convince the world you aren't a public menace.]] As Jameson points out, the Kingpin was able to turn half the city against Spider-Man without Jameson saying a single negative word against the Wall-Crawler.

Added DiffLines:

** In one story, Robbie asks Jameson why he puts up with Peter's pictures, since they're pretty amateurish all things considered, and asks if Jameson ran a background check on Peter. Jameson assures him that he did, and looks at his computer, where there's an article about Ben Parker's death open.
