No one has ever seen his true face as its hidden under a white mask.

Calling J. Jonah Jameson a villain might be stretching things a bit, but for a good portion of the Spider-Man comics, he’s usually an antagonist, trying to bad mouth the hero by calling him a fraud and threat. He sometimes has been able to turn the city against him, making being a hero much more challenging.
