76178 LEGO Daily Bugle. You don’t need to use your Spidey-Senses to know that this Daily Bugle LEGO Set is a great LEGO Marvel Set. Part of the LEGO Marvel Sets, this Daily Bugle LEGO Set is a sky-scraping action-packed model, ready for a host of encounters for not only Spider-Man and his enemies, but also Peter Parker and the Daily Bugle’s owner J. Jonah Jameson.

The fictional New York City tabloid newspaper; The Daily Bugle, is not only a major source of news and gossip in the Marvel Universe but it also adds to the fun and excitement by covering Spiderman’s adventures. Whether it’s his heroic deeds, altercations with villains, or whatever else he gets up to, The Daily Bugle has been there every step of the way.

Peter Parker’s job at the Daily Bugle has been a source of much speculation to the public. While he does take pictures for the paper, many readers are unaware that Peter Parker is actually Spider-Man in disguise. This means that whenever a villain makes an appearance, Peter often must find a way to sneak away and put on his iconic suit. As a result, it’s not uncommon for the Bugle’s readers to find photos with Spider-Man in them and wonder why their favourite photographer is missing from the scene. At the end of the day, Peter Parker’s job at the Daily Bugle is a balancing act between his duties as photographer and his identity as Spider-Man. Despite the challenges, he always manages to both in style.
