Yes, I am blogging about a cartoon pig in a Spiderman-costume. Peter was a spider from a reality that was full of Mickey Mouse-cartoon-like animal people. Peter was a spider that lived in the basement / lab of May Porker. After using her invention, "the world's first atomic powered hairdryer", she became temporally radioactive. During a fit of delusion, she bit Peter giving him a pig-like appearance. Disoriented, he realize he still had his spider-like abilities:
"This is astounding! Am I a spider with the limitations of a pig? Or a pig proportionate strength and agility of a spider? I've become something greater than spider or pig... I've become a Spider-Ham!"
He decided to fight injustice. He adopted the name Peter Porker (partly because May thought that she was his aunt). He fought foes including Ducktor Doom (Doctor Doom parody), the Buzzard (Vulture parody), the Bull-Frog (Man-Bull parody) and Hogzilla (Godzilla-like swine). Other heroes of Spider-Ham universe (most of which were in back-up stories) include the X-Bugs (X-men), Deerdevil (Daredevil), Goose Rider (Ghost Rider), Awful Flight (Alpha-Flight) and Croctor Strange (Doctor Strange).
