- "Pray nothing crazy happens again because, are the Avengers even a thing anymore? Does anyone even have a plan?!"
- ―Jason Ionello
Hosting with Betty Brant
Ionello was a student at the Midtown School of Science and Technology, where he co-hosted the school TV show with Betty Brant. As the school's homecoming party was approaching, Ionello asked Brant whether she already had a date, leading to an awkward on-screen moment when Brant told Ionello that she did.
During a physical education course, Ionello sat with Liz Toomes, Seymour O'Reilly and Brant, listening to the girls commenting on the Robbery of the Queens Community Bank and how Spider-Man had intervened. Like everyone else, Ionello was surprised to hear Ned Leeds claiming that Peter Parker knew Spider-Man.
Ionello later reported the victory of the Academic Decathlon Team in Washington, D.C., as well as the Rescue at the Washington Monument. Ionello then commented that a "Spider-Man-mania" was overrunning the school and invited the students to find creative ways to express their fascination for Spider-Man.
Ionello and Brant also informed the students about Herman Schultz being found in the school's bus yard, webbed to a bus with Spider-Man's Synthetic Webbing. They also presented a news segment in which various people across the school, including Roger Harrington, Michelle Jones and Leeds, were asked about their insights regarding Spider-Man's true identity.
Ionello was a victim of the Snap in 2018, but along with all other victims, was brought back to life by the Hulk in 2023. Ionello was shocked to find his little brother was now older than him, and that he would be forced to restart his school year from scratch, despite having taken his midterm before being erased.

- In the comics, Jason Ionello was a practical joker and part of Flash Thompson's gang. He was particularly close to Sally Avril and much like her, idolized Spider-Man while looking down on Peter Parker. After accidentally getting involved in a crash that ended Avril's life, Ionello became withdrawn and suicidal until he was convinced to blame someone else by Vulture.
