Latching onto the long-standing superhero craze and seeding a Bollywood connection into the Hollywood world, this launch is inspired by one of the legend’s first international superhero creations – ‘Chakra The Invincible’.
Based on “Chakra The Invincible” created by Stan Lee and Sharad Devarajan, the ‘Chakraverse’ limited-edition NFT collection will celebrate the late legend’s 99th birthday with a worldwide auction December 27–29.
As part of the NFT collection, Orange Comet, in collaboration with GuardianLink.io, will be auctioning an exclusive collectible series of 7,000 unique generative Chakraverse art pieces based on the characters from the comics.
Additionally, a series of original high-end animation gallery pieces and limited-edition NFTs of Lee’s first Chakra The Invincible graphic novel have been exclusively created for the auction.
In 2012, Stan Lee discussed Chakra The Invincible and said that he has always been fascinated by Indian culture. It’s so philosophical and rich in tradition and morality.
“The Invincible is the first superhero I am creating specifically for the Indian market. My goal with Chakra is simple – I want to bring an Eastern concept like the Chakras to the world via the Western genre of superheroes,” he added.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest creators of recent times, Lee is a legendary writer and co-creator of the world’s most popular superheroes, including Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Hulk, The Avengers, and more.
His characters have generated over $32 billion at the global box office and established some of the most beloved stories in history.
Keyur Patel, Co-Founder and Chairman of GuardianLink.io and BeyondLIfe.Club, said, “We are thrilled to be part of this collaboration to launch this exclusive global NFT drop based upon the characters co-created by the legendary Stan Lee.”
Orange Comet is also dedicated to blockchain sustainability, running on green servers and building a carbon-negative solution in the NFT space.
This NFT drop will be launched on the eco-conscious Polygon blockchain. Polygon is a climate sustainable blockchain that is over 99.99 per cent more carbon efficient than Ethereum.
“Stan was always so captivated and intrigued by emerging technology,” said Gill Champion, President of Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment. “Inspired by his fascination with new trends, we are honoured to connect Stan’s fans to his first Indian superhero in an exciting new way with the Chakraverse NFT collection.”
Chakra The Invincible tells the story of Raju Rai, a young Indian student living in Mumbai. Determined to unlock the secrets of human potential through science, Raju and his mentor, the scientist Dr Singh, develop a technology suit that activates the mystical chakras of the body, unleashing superhuman abilities and powers.
In addition to comics and animation, Graphic India and POW! Entertainment is also actively developing Chakra The Invincible as a live-action Hollywood project for audiences worldwide.
