(Spider-Verse III#5/2 (fb) - BTS) - The living bowl of ramen known as Spider-Ramen existed in an alternate future world.

(Twitter online post by creator Steve Poole) - Mourning the tragic loss of his beloved Uncle Bento, the living bowl of ramen known as Spider-Ramen dedicated his life to fighting the crime of hunger. Projecting noodles that acted as a sort of spider-webbing, Spider-Ramen swung around town delivering bowls of ramen to the homeless.

(Spider-Verse III#5/2) - Generating multiple bowls of ramen to feed the city's hungry, Spider-Ramen dropped down from a string of noodles and surprised a homeless man with a bowl of ramen.

Comments: Created by Steve Poole.

Spider-Ramen is one of several Spidersona's who appeared in the back-pages of Spider-Verse (2020). "Spidersona" was a hashtag that launched around the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). Amazed at the talent of creativity of people posting their creations online, Marvel reached out to some of these artists to create new Spidersona art especially for the Spider-Verse (2020) series. Every issue showcased several original pieces of Spidersona art by artists from around the globe after which most appeared in the story as well.

Spider-Ramen's origin was never fully explained. Given that he was seen giving ramen to homeless humans, it seems as if Spider-Ramen exists in a world that at least has humans in it. In this regard, it seems possible that Spider-Ramen might have once been a human that was mutated, much like many other Multiversal Spider-totems. On the other hand, with a name like Peter Potnoodle, who has an uncle named Uncle Bento, it seems equally possible that Spider-Ramen could have always lived his life as a giant bowl of ramen with a possible family of living food dishes (Uncle Bento, for example). Without any further information, we can only speculate as to his true origins.

HUGE thanks to Mike Fichera for the approximation of weight on a giant, living bowl of ramen with spider powers!!
