Comics legend Stan Lee, the co-creator of iconic characters like Spider-Man, X-Men, The Hulk and Fantastic Four, is developing his first Indian superhero ‘Chakra-The Invincible’. The character will be the first Indian superhero to be created by Lee in collaboration with local artists and writers.
Comic titan Stan Lee and his POW! Entertainment will introduce Chakra – The Invincible, an original superhero for the Indian market, in conjunction with New Delhi’s Liquid Comics. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comic centers on Raju Rai, a Mumbai teen tech wiz, who develops an enhanced suit that activates mystical powers.
The plan is to introduce Chakra – The Invincible as a series of downloadable web and mobile comics distributed throughout India on Liquid’s recently announced Graphic India platform. Lee’s first digital comic book story on Chakra will be released for free in April 2012, exclusively on Graphic India - India's Premiere Webcomic and Pop-Culture Portal though a preview of concept art will be available later this week on the website.
