J. Jonah Jameson, the publisher of the Daily Bugle, has denounced Spider-Man from the beginning, convincing New Yorkers to see him as a criminal and a menace. But when a robot attack on Manhattan injures Peter Parker’s students and Jameson blames Spider-Man, their feud takes on a personal dimension.
As the embittered web-slinger faces further robot attacks, each deadlier than the last, his spider-sense warns that Jameson himself is behind them, possibly colluding with Electro, Alistaire Smythe, or another of Spider-Man’s mortal foes. Convinced that his worst critic has become a mortal enemy, Spider-Man declares war on Jameson—a war the publisher is eager to wage. But in their relentless pursuit of victory, they both risk losing everything that matters to them—and may both fall victim to the cataclysmic secret behind the robots.
