The Love Song of J. Jonah Jameson

The Love Song of J. Jonah Jameson

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.

That’s from a poem. It’s called “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” by T.S. Eliot. A very smart man told me once that poetry was a fail-safe way to get a woman to fall in love with me. Now, granted, he did go crazy and try to take down the city with a set of mechanical octopus arms, but I do think he was on to something with this. I wish this were just a love letter. But I have a lot I want to tell you, and I’m afraid some of it may be hard to hear.

First things first. I, Peter Parker, am Spider-Man.

JASON

When I was a kid in the 80’s, all I wanted was to be half-boy, half-robot. I even asked my mom to schedule a doctor’s appointment so I could get half my body replaced with robot parts. I guess I assumed the doctor was going to be like, “Whatever you say, kid—you’re the boss!” and chop my arm off with a meat cleaver, probably with a crumpled cigarette dangling out of his mouth. “We got a whole shipment of kid-sized robot arms in the back. Want me to replace your brain with the parts from your Commodore 64 while I’m at it? 64 kilobytes of RAM! How about a floppy disk drive for a butt?”
