Spider-Man Tangled Web #20 (2003)

J. Jonah Jameson gets enraged about Spider-Man, has a heart attack, and goes into therapy to look at his anger.  We then get a look at his childhood, which is exactly what you would have expected: Abusive drunk dad.  Mom who doesn’t protect him.  So he takes up boxing and starts punching people a lot.  Trauma bonds with a woman and marries her.
It’s all well written, it’s just unsurprising.  For once, I’d like to see a person who is a jerk as an adult and NOT have it blamed entirely on his parents.
