Ringo Starr

RINGO STARR is to play a super-powered animated version of himself in a new cartoon series.

The feature will transform the former Beatles drummer into an "evil-battling, earth-saving (though reluctant) superhero with a great sense of rhythm", according to Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment company.

The comic book creator has joined forces with Starr to create the superhero project for television and DVD.

"I'm so excited to become a reluctant superhero," said Starr.. "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."

Lee, the mastermind behind comic book characters Spiderman, the X-Men and the Hulk, said he would base the superhero on Starr's famed persona.

"Ringo is beloved worldwide for his commitment to people and his singular wit," he said.

"Our Ringo superhero character will combine these qualities, along with Ringo's secret powers which people didn't know about."
