According to the New Musical Express:
RINGO STARR is to become a cartoon superhero.
The ex-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." (emphasis added)
Okay, not quite speechless. But two words for Ringo: Mission: Magic.
In disturbingly similar news, in 2003 Gene Simmons created a Canadian cartoon called My Dad the Rock Star. Any Canadian readers want to weigh in on this? I'm guessing it was short-lived, but one can never tell....
