'Spider-Man' creator Stan Lee has partnered with Ringo Starr to turn the former Beatle into an animated hero.

The man behind the comic books 'Fantastic Four', 'The X-Men' and 'The Hulk', will base his superhero on the personality of Ringo Starr and Ringo will voice the character.

Although Ringo has been portrayed as a cartoon character before in The Beatles cartoon and the 'Yellow Submarine' movie, the only other time he has played himself in a cartoon was he guest starred in 'The Simpsons'.

"This is going to be one of the most exciting adventures I've had all day" said Ringo in a statement. "What a terrific opportunity to meet and work with the great Stan Lee. I'm so excited to become a 'reluctant superhero."
 
"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. See you in animation land."
