* LiteralBookworm: The Bookworm is an enemy of Spider-Ham that appears in "TV or Not TV, [[EitherOrTitle Or... Read a Good Book Lately?]]". He's an earthworm whose parents were librarians and instilled him with a deep love for books. He became a librarian himself, but had to close down the library when television sets became a household standard. Some time thereafter, a book fell on his head and The Bookworm became a low-key RealityWarper with the skill to summon literary figures into existence, order them around, and dismiss them out of existence. In order, he summons [[Literature/TheThreeMusketeers The Three Muskrateers]], Literature/TheRaven, and [[Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Quasidodo]] to ruin the [[UsefulNotes/EmmyAward Eggy Awards]], destroy the state-of-the-art dish of a new television network, and kill Spider-Ham. Spider-Ham defeats The Bookworm by dropping another book on his head to remove his powers.


Spider-Ham gained newfound prominence during the 2010s thanks to an unexpected cameo in the video game ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions''. He would return to comics as a supporting character in the ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse'' crossover event a few years later, after which he became a main member of the dimension-hopping ''ComicBook/WebWarriors'' team. The character's popularity was further bolstered by his cinematic debut in 2018's ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'', where he is transformed into a ''Franchise/LooneyTunes''-inspired character voiced by Creator/JohnMulaney. He also got a companion short with the home video release of that film, ''WesternAnimation/SpiderHamCaughtInAHam. At the tail end of 2019, he got a new miniseries.

Debuting in a comedic one-shot comic entitled ''Marvel Tails'' in 1983, Spider-Ham was created by writer Creator/TomDeFalco and artist Mark Armstrong as an animal-based parody of ''ComicBook/SpiderMan''. Hailing from [[AlternateUniverse Earth-8311]], Peter Porker is an anthropomorphic pig who actually began life as a common house spider [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext who was bitten by a radioactive pig scientist after an atomic-powered hairdryer accident]]. Upon being bitten and transformed, he found that he retained all his spider abilities in addition to gaining the genius of scientist May Porker, who now believes herself to Peter's aunt. After coming to terms with these changes, the arachnid-turned-pig decided to become a superhero and use these talents to fight crime. Spider-Ham proved popular enough to get his own series published by Creator/MarvelComics subsidiary Star Comics, a short-lived imprint of the company focused on children's comics, with this solo series lasting for 17 issues and featuring back-up material starring anthropomorphic animal versions of other Marvel heroes. After that, Spider-Ham made a few appearances in ''Marvel Tales'' and humor magazine ''What The--?!'' before fading into obscurity during the 1990s.
