Marvel Team-Up #37: Spider-Man and Man-Wolf in "Snow Death!"
Download Marvel Team-Up #37
John Jameson (also known as Man-Wolf) is a fictional character in publications from Marvel Comics. John Jameson debuted in Amazing Spider-Man #1 (March 1963), and was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
John Jameson was an astronaut who had been on several missions before being selected for a secret mission to the moon. While there he discovered a ruby- like gemstone that he felt compelled to own. He stole it from quarantine and began wearing it as a pendant. The moonstone proved to be an alien artifact that attached itself to Jameson's throat and on nights of the full moon transformed him into the Man-Wolf, a powerful and violent wolf-like humanoid. For months Jameson tried and failed to stop the transformations, eventually stalking his own father, J.Jonah Jameson and then-fiance, Kristine Saunders. Spider-Man intervened and fought the Man-Wolf, eventually ripping the moonstone from the creature's throat. Jameson reverted to his human form, seemingly cured.
Later, Morbius reattached the moonstone to Jameson so that he could use the Man-Wolf as a pawn in a scheme to cure himself of his vampiric illness, a scheme that was thwarted by Spider-Man. Now Jameson transformed into the Man-Wolf whenever the moon was above the horizon.
