Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Governator, EWAhhhnold is back -- on-screen, that is.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is following up his stint as governor of California by returning to his showbiz roots. According to Entertainment Weekly, the former Governator is being turned into a cartoon superhero called -- what else? -- The Governator.

Comic legend Stan Lee is co-developing the comic book and corresponding cartoon TV show. "The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he'll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger," Lee told EW. "We're using all the personal elements of Arnold's life ... Only after he leaves the governor's office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood."
