These Spider-Man texting memes show us what Peter’s really been sending
Marvel’s Spider-Man was just released, and as expected, the internet is going nuts over it. From making hilarious memes involving the game’s super cool Photo Mode to zipping around in-game Manhattan, people can’t seem to get enough of the game.
Spider-Man is surprisingly realistic, with plenty of fun little touches that really help to immerse you and make you feel as though you’ve totally leaped into the world of your favorite comic book superhero. For instance, Spider-Man can often be seen scrolling through his phone, texting, and chatting with other characters like MJ.
But what’s Peter sending, anyway? There’s one particular screenshot being shared online with some pretty silly ideas on what he might be up to. Aside from the obvious under the suit “sexy pictures” of course.

Is that Grindr, Peter? The app uses the same chat color bubbles, blue and yellow.
