"Peter Porker: The Spectacular Spider-Ham"



Take another look @ footage of "Peter Porker: The Spectacular Spider-Ham", a 'super-swine' that debuted in Marvel's Star Comics' one-shot "Marvel Tails" #1 (1983), fighting 'Ducktor Doom' and the 'Green Gobbler':


Created by Tom DeFalco and Mark Armstrong, the parody of Marvel Comics' "Spider-Man", debuted in "Marvel Tails", followed by the 17 issue series "Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham", written by Steve Skeates.


"...'Peter Porker' was born a spider named 'Peter'. He resided in the basement lab of 'May Porker', an animal scientist who created the world's first atomic powered hairdryer...


"...hoping that the introduction of nuclear fusion into America's beauty salons would revolutionize the hair care industry.


"After dousing her head with water and activating the dryer, May accidentally irradiated herself, and in a fit of delusion, bit Peter, who then found himself transformed into an anthropomorphic swine much like May Porker herself.


"Running from the Porker homestead disoriented, Peter soon came to realize that he still retained his innate spider abilities: 'This is astounding!, he shouts. 'Am I a spider with the limitations of a pig? Or a pig with the proportionate strength and agility of a spider? I've become something greater than either spider or pig... I've become a 'Spider-Ham'!..."


"After this startling series of events, Peter dedicated himself...


"...and his new-found abilities to fighting injustice...


"...fighting animal enemies including 'Ducktor Doom', 'Green Gobbler' and 'Doctor Octopussy Cat', alongside heroes 'Iron Mouse', 'Hulkbunny', 'Deerdevil', 'Captain Americat', 'Goose Rider' and 'Nick Furry', Agent Of S.H.E.E.P."..."
