16It Didn't Debut With Spider-Man

Daily Bugle First Appearance Fantastic Four

It isn't a secret that the Daily Bugle is featured in Spider-Man more than any other comic in the Marvel's catalog, so it's understandable why people would assume that it's where the fictitious tabloid was first introduced. As it turns out, that isn't the case, with the first actual appearance of the

Bugle newspaper coming all the way back in 1943, in All-Winners Comics #11. This comes 20 years before it would fully establish itself and its grouchy owner J. Jonah Jameson, in The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (1963).

Though All-Winners Comics may not be a household name today, the Bugle actually also made an appearance in another well-known Marvel franchise a whole two years before Spidey's debut comic. And where else but Fantastic Four #2, an issue that featured a manhunt for the framed super group. Apparently, Jameson had some practice demonizing superheroes before Spidey came along.
