One Punch Man creator Yusuke Murata has drawn fanart of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The piece celebrates the Japanese theatrical release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, showing Tom Holland’s Spidey and Iron Man battling the Vulture. Murata had previously drawn fanart of Dragon Ball Z’s Nappa and Vegeta, and Lionsgate’s Power Rangers.

Spider-Man Homecoming is the latest in the Marvel cinematic universe and third film adaptation of Peter Parker’s origins story. Without spoiling, the film continues on from Spider-Man’s and Iron Man’s relationship in Captain America: Civil War, and helps set up what the last ten year’s worth of Marvel films built up for Infinity War. We really enjoyedSpider-Man: Homecoming, which according to Anime News Network, has currently earned $US643 million.

Yusuke Murata’s One Punch Man is a Shounen parody manga about the adventures of the blunt talking bald overpowered superhero, Saitama, as he tries to find a worthy opponent. The series originally debuted as a webcomic by One before Murata began serialising an adaptation in Young Jump Web Comics. A 12-episode long anime adaptation by Madhouse is currently available to stream on AnimeLab with a second season in the works.
