Episode #29 - The Vulture's Prey

J. Jonah Jameson is kidnapped by The Vulture and the fowl bird uses his knowledge of events to plan his robberies.


J. Jonah Jameson. God love him, heís saved this show more times than I dare count. A classic example of how to handle a very 2d character, this episode is one of his finest hours. Given how well he was used in this show, thatís no small feat.

Iím not a massive fan of this shows version of The Vulture, but he worked well enough here. I thought his stealing the rocket was a stupid idea. I mean, he can already flyÖ why does he need a rocket to help him take to the skies?

The higlight of the episode is Jamesonís clueless attitude, giving Vulture all the information he needs to steal the valuables without realising it. The ending was of paticular high class, if only for the expression on Jamesonís face after Spider-Man demands a ďpleaseĒ after his plea for help. A little cheesy, but still funny.
