This issue is a classic example of something Marvel did all the time in the 1980s but almost never does any more. It looks at a single, minor event that doesn’t involve supervillains or anything cosmic or worldbreaking, and shows it from the view of several witnesses. Think Rashamon.
The basic fact: A man was hit by a car, and Spider-Man was right behind him. Did Spidey chase him recklessly and cause him to be hit? (No.) Was he a criminal trying to evade capture? (Yes.) Does J. Jonah Jameson take full advantage of an opportunity to skewer Spider-Man? (Yes.) And does Spidey finally snap and scare the bejezus out of JJJ? (Also Yes.)
Great little story.
