Spider-Man and the Vulture: ONE AND THE SAME?!

Totally ignoring Peter's comment in panel two. Okay, Jameson has finally gone around the bend. I'm sure they've fought before, and I'm sure Peter got pictures of that at the time, which means that there's documented proof in the Daily Bugle that Spider-Man and the Vulture have been seen together. And Jameson's picture just looks so gosh-darned smug in that picture. I'd sort of like to smack him.

So on the front page, JJ accuses Spidey of being in league with Vulture... and on the editorial page, he posits that they are one and the same. You'd think, in a newspaper seemingly written/micromanaged by a single person, there's be just a tad more consistency.

Also, was there not a single eyewitness to the Spidey-Vulture battle? No news-choppers hovering around the scene of the action? Nobody with a camera-phone? In real life, there'd be a dozen amateur videos of the epic battle on YouTube -- which would have, in turn, been picked up and run by the local newscasts. Which would have completely debunked BOTH of JJ's theories before he even got them into print.

Agreed. Especially in New York, and to tell you the truth, if I lived in New York with Spiderman real, I would walk the streets with a video camera.

But in the Comics world no one has what they need because it wouldn't go with the plot. Because everything has to go wrong for Peter.

We're stuck in the 1960's - if the 60's had the internet and Osama Bin Ladin.

You never know about those photo things though, those crazy internets are always faking those things anyways.

Wasn't Jameson on the scene when Spidey bought both Toomes and Drago waaaaay back in ASM #63?

In Amazing Annual 22 The editors said these strips are syndicated to the mainstream, they hafta remember that Kraven, Spider-Man and Blackie battled, especially after Spider-Man saving some stock broker or a jewel guy from this vulture back in the sixties.

J.J is just jealous, who should care for what he says? Didn't people learn not to believe everything they read in the papers? For the love of GOD; D.A tower publicly announced he's innocent, and the Spider is still a criminal to some of the readers?
