Answer to Trivia

Peter Parker, the alter-ego of Spider-Man, earns money by freelancing as a photographer for the Daily Bugle. Somehow, Peter is the only one who can get reliable pictures of the elusive Spider-Man.

HIs boss at the Daily Bugle is J. Jonah Jameson who debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #1 in March 1963. The gruff editor is said to have been modeled after Stan Lee himself and has been played on the big screen by J.K. Simmons and most recently Lee himself lent his voice to the character in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

This week Spider-Man's complicated adversary Venom is new on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD. J. Jonah Jameson's son plays an astronaut in an early scene.
