Excerpts

BELOW: J. Jonah Jameson's hatred for Spider-Man is evident in how he reacts to Carol Danvers mentioning him: When newly hired Woman magazine editor Carol Danvers mentions Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson reacts strongly. Jameson's hatred of Spider-Man is clearly evident when he yells at Danvers: "Don't ever mention that name in this office! EVER! GET OUT!" This panel also demonstrates Jameson's general disdain for super-heroes and his nascent hatred for Ms. Marvel. Even though Ms. Marvel saved Jameson from being killed by the Scorpion, Jameson still wants Carol Danvers to write an exposé on her. He is infuriated by how (in his opinion) she made a fool out of him when she rescued him.

BELOW: J. Jonah Jameson: I hate super-heroes! J. Jonah Jameson hires Carol Danvers to be the new editor of Woman magazine. Her first assignment is to write an expose on New York's newest super-hero, Ms. Marvel. When Danvers asks why, Jameson explains: "This is something else, something MORE IMPORTANT [than fashion]. I HATE super-heroes, Miss Danvers. HATE THEM!"

BELOW: Carol Danvers makes her strong Feminist sensibilities known: Feminism was a major theme in the first volume of Ms. Marvel comics. When hiring her as the new editor for Woman magazine, J. Jonah Jameson's disinterest in Feminism was clear. After agreeing on her salary, Ms. Marvel lays down a few rules which signify her Feminist ideas. She insists on being called "Ms. Carol Danvers." (Jameson had called her "Miss Danvers.") She also tells Jameson "forget it" when it comes to his suggestion of an editorial focus on diets and recipes.

BELOW: J. Jonah Jameson's disinterest in Feminism is made clear: When J. Jonah Jameson hired Carol Danvers (secretly Ms. Marvel) to be the new editor for Woman magazine, his disinterest in contemporary Feminism is obvious. He says "yecch" to topics the magazine has tackled lately, such as "Women's Lib," an interview with famed LGBT Feminist activist Kate Millett, and careers for women. Jameson thinks a woman's magazine should focus more on "useful" topics such as diets, fashion, and recipes - topics he regards as the proper traditional concerns for women.
