One of the things that aggravates me about Spider-man's "new direction" is that in addition to attempting to take Peter's character back several years (and thus making him a loser, basement dwelling man-child) they've also been rewinding the clock on several members of his supporting cast.
Take, for example, J. Jonah Jameson, who's been returned to his Spidey-hating roots and now that seems to be the entirety of his character again. A damn shape after several years where Triple-J was shown, not to be just a great newspaperman but sometimes, a great man as well. Okay, still a cigar chomping a-hole, but not exclusively so. Take, for example, his cameos in Uncanny X-men #337-#346, where he proves himself to be the kind of guy I could buy the people of New York voting for.
