'Spider-Man' creating Indian superhero
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. 'Chakra' tells the story of the young Indian teenager, Raju Rai, a technological genius living in Mumbai. Determined to use science to unlock the secrets of human potential, Raju develops a technically-enhanced suit that activates the mystical Chakras of the body, unleashing newfound abilities and powers.
"I'm incredibly excited to be collaborating with my friends at Liquid Comics and their best-in-class team of artists as we launch a great new, thrill-a-minute superhero saga named Chakra - The Invincible," said Lee in a statement on Graphic India.
"Against the spectacular backdrop of the great Indian metropolis of Mumbai, we tell the incredible saga of Chakra, our daring and dangerous teenage hero." "Stan Lee is one of the most prolific storytellers in the world today...The opportunity to bring Stan's unparalleled experience of the superhero genre to India and enable him to collaborate with local talents to create a new Indian character is the culmination of a lifelong dream," said Liquid's Co-Founder & CEO, Sharad Devarajan.
