Based on Chakra The Invincible, an Indian superhero comic, created by Stan Lee and Sharad Devarajan, the Chakraverse limited-edition NFT collection is being launched on 27 December to celebrate the 99th birthday of its co-creator Stan Lee.
Latching onto the long-standing superhero craze and seeding a Bollywood connection into the Hollywood world, this launch is inspired by one the legend’s first international superhero creations—Chakra The Invincible. This unique collection marks a monumental movement to introduce NFTs simultaneously into the global NFT ecosystem in the US, India, and around the world.
As part of the unique Chakraverse NFT collection, Orange Comet, in collaboration with GuardianLink.io, a global NFT technology company, 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.
BeyondLife.club, powered by GuardianLink.io, today collectively announced the Chakraverse limited edition NFT collection, in partnership with Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, Graphic India, and Orange Comet.
The Chakraverse NFT collection will go up for auction on Monday, 27 December at 7:30 AM IST and close on Wednesday, 30 December at 1:30 AM IST.
Commenting on this massive NFT drop, GuardianLink.io, and BeyondLIfe.Club co-founder and chairman Keyur Patel 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. The NFT space in India is growing faster than expected with the rise in Bollywood celebs joining the bandwagon. Given the nature of the industry where NFT represents value as an asset, our newly launched Anti-RIP technology makes it stand apart from the industry clutter in terms of protection and security. With our AI-based algorithmic auctioning engine we have created one of the most unique compositions to run this NFT auction globally.”
Graphic India co-founder and CEO of Graphic India Devarajan said, “As a young child, Stan Lee’s work shaped my life and spoke to me in a way that no other author or creator ever has, and probably ever will. To be able to create a superhero with Stan was like being asked to paint a canvas with Da Vinci or write a poem with Shakespeare—it was quite simply one of the greatest joys of my life. Our mission with Chakra was to create a character that would transcend countries and cultures, bringing together ideas from the east and west by speaking in the primal language of human imagination. The opportunity to now offer digital NFT ownership of the graphic novel and allow Stan’s many fans to share in the ownership of this new Chakraverse collection of art, will hopefully build a new community of NFT owners across the world.”
Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment president Gill Champion said, “Stan was always so captivated and intrigued by emerging technology. 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.”
Orange Comet CEO Dave Broome said, “As a company, Orange Comet has been able to work with some of the world’s most incredible IP, but it is truly an honor to take an icon like Stan Lee’s work and reimagine it as an NFT collectible. We are thrilled to share this exciting opportunity with Stan Lee fans from New York to New Delhi and beyond.”
