One of the funniest bits from 2018’s Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was Spider-Ham, a cartoon pig version of Spider-Man voiced by Saturday Night Live‘s John Mulaney.
Now, Mulaney’s Spider-Ham is making his way to Marvel Contest of Champions, the popular mobile fighting game from Vancouver-based Kabam.
I am Peter Porker. I was bitten by a radioactive pig ok? I became Spider-Ham! Stay with me. In this universe, I star in my own featured @MarvelChampions Motion Comic 🤩 #sponsored #MarvelContestofChampions #Marvel https://t.co/rMJAl9oZIb
