The Beatles legend adds another string to his bow...

RINGO STARR is to become a cartoon superhero.

The ex-[url=]Beatle is set to feature in a new cartoon which will hit TV and DVD next year.

The brainchild of the cartoon is ’Spider-Man’ creator Stan Lee.

He said: “Ringo is beloved worldwide for his commitment to people and his singular wit. Our Ringo superhero character will combine these qualities, along with Ringo’s secret powers.”

Starr added:”How great to hang out with Stan and laugh, laugh, laugh, as we’re in the first stages of creating this soon-to-be masterpiece. Adding music to this adventure is something I am also looking forward to.”
