Deja Vu

Jonah Jameson is obviously trying to be Maria Lopez's knight in shining armor so he can get the "hero's reward" and that makes me want to vomit. Hopefully he'll be able to operate that camera, as I remember him having difficulties with a non-video camera earlier in this storyline. You know, when Jonah rushed in and tried to get some pictures of Doctor Octopus only to get captured, resulting the in the super-villain's escape. Let's hope that does not happen again.

Shouldn't a "story of a lifetime" be something that takes place, oh, once in a lifetime? Spider-Man has fought Doc Oct something like thirteen hundred times by now, so that seems a bit of an overstatement, even if superhero action is a rarer in Los Angeles than New York. On the other hand, Ock *is* threatening a vapid celebrity, so maybe that's the angle she's actually thinking of. Sort of like if terrorists grabbed Pamela Anderson or something.

And sadly, I think JJJ's long-ago screw-up with the camera was meant to presage his similar screw-up here, which will lose him his insanely acquired job as a news anchor, as well as Maria's affections.

I'm thinking perhaps Maria Lopez is just using Jonah, and her little hissy-fit was only an act to see how far Jonah would go for her.
