Or maybe it's a case of Ditko getting angry about what words Stan put in the word bubbles? It'd be interesting to see what words Ditko intended for those panels originally:

That speech actually always struck me as very Ditko; Spider-Man is the hero, after all, so for Jameson to slander him means he must be driven by weakness and baseness (Ditko’s post-Stan comics are very didactic about moral firmness), and very Fountainhead-style aesthetic Objectivist about the genius-hero’s true enemies being jealous and envious of him at their core.

I’ve always been partial to the falling-out being over revealing that kindly industrialist Norman Osborn had secretly been the Green Goblin all along...

Savage Avengers is launching in May with a roster of Venom, Wolverine, Punisher, Elektra, Doctor Voodoo, and *checks notes* Conan the Barbarian.

I love it?

The only one who makes me rise an eyebrow is Venom - whom I assume has grudges with everybody else in the list but Conan.

Venom
(I got that) Adrenaline momentum (venom)
Not knowing when I'm
Ever gonna slow up and I'm
Ready to snap any moment-um
Thinkin' it's time to go get 'em
They ain't gonna know what hit 'em

I'm re-reading David's original "Spider-Man 2099" run and - damn, that's still a great costume.
