History

The Daily Bugle building was formerly the Goodman Building, established on 39th Street and Second Avenue until John Jonah Jameson purchased and used it to establish his entire editorial and publishing facilities there, principally his newspaper the Daily Bugle. From now on called the Daily Bugle Building, the office complex is forty-six stories tall, and is capped by the Daily Bugle logo in 30-foot letter on the roof. There are loading docks in the rear of the building, reached by a back alley. Three floors are devoted to the editorial office of the Daily Bugle, two sub-basement levels for the printing presses, while the rest of the floors are rented.[1][2]

The building collapses

Many years later, the newspaper hit on hard times which led to it being offered by a buyout by Dexter Bennett as well as the entire building.[3]

The Daily Bugle building was later destroyed by Electro.[4] Later after their shares were reacquired from Bennett, and Mayor Jameson give to Joe Robertson, who was gone rogue with most of the DB!'s staff ("The DB!" being the name of the Daily Bugle under Bennet's rule) to the Front Line, the rights over the use the Daily Bugle's name.

The Front Line was so turned as a new Daily Bugle, into the former Front Line office (formerly the Alternative's office).

In this reality, the Daily Bugle building housed the newspaper of the same name until it was damaged during the events of Ultimatum, forcing the company to temporarily close down.[5] It was later reformed to house the offices of the Daily Bugle once more, but now dedicated as an online news portal exclusively. A ".com" was added below the classic sign.

Marvel Nemesis (Earth-50701)

In the multi-platform video game Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects Universe the Daily Bugle is a recurring battleground throughout the story mode and available in the versus mode. Here the rooftop is surrounded by three destructible walls, and covered with explosive barrels, air conditioners, pipes, and poles for use in battle. Even the trademark letters that form "Daily Bugle" are available for throwing at enemies once damaged.
