Practically every unpowered named individual in the Marvel Multiverse has received powers in some What-If-iverse at some point. I recently found out that Uncle Ben even became Spider-Man at one point.

What about J.J. Jameson? Has he ever received any powers? Were they in the 616 or Ultimates universe? If so how did he cope?

    I feel a strange compulsion to claim his incredibly charismatic editing style is his superpower.

  • After 70+ years of Spider Man, the answer to every single "Has X happened in Spider Man?" question is "yes, repeatedly"

  • @Richard yes, but "Is there a list of usually powerless individuals who have gotten powers?" would be too list-ish and probably off-topic.

  • There's also the "Captured by J. Jonah Jameson" episode of the Spider-Man TV series by Ralph Bakshi. It's note really Jameson getting powers, but a Spider-man hunter robot, with Jameson's face, that Jameson sponsors to capture Spidey.

During Spider-Island, J. Jonah Jameson gained spider powers.

enter image description here

He manages to defeat a spider-slayer, so I guess he does ok. This was in 616.
