The Law Is A Ass # 314: J. Jonah Jameson—Menace Or Menace?

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    The word “accessory” comes to mind.

    • Accessory is a term used in criminal prosecutions. It’s another word of aider and abettor. It’s not used so much in civil lawsuits.

      And I doubt they could prosecute Tony as an aider and abettor. Abettors have to act with the same degree of criminality as the principal offender. That is, they have to know what the principal is doing and want to help in that pursuit. This story showed JJJ lied to Tony, so Tony had no idea what JJJ would be doing with the armor. That would spare Tony from criminal charges but not, as I’ll explain on Friday, civil suits.

        Best part of the movie is the beginning, with Carl Denham dodging process servers and irate citizens among the aftermath of King Kong
