Today Warner Bros subsidiary DC Comics launched the presale of its new Bat Cowl non-fungible token (NFT) collection in collaboration with Palm NFT Studio.
Buyers of Bat Cowl NFTs will be able to vote on the storyline, characters, and art of a future Batman comic. They will also be rewarded with other exclusive products and collectibles, access and benefits at DC fan events, and advance access to future DC NFT collections.
“While Batman is one of the world’s most iconic Super Heroes, garnering hundreds of millions of fans all around the globe—his appearance has changed and shifted over the past 83 years,” said Jim Lee, Publisher and Chief Creative Officer at DC. “What’s exciting about this amazing collaboration is that we are continuing the evolution of his distinctive Bat Cowl by bringing it into the modern digital world, making it accessible and more wildly engaging than ever before.”
There is a maximum supply of 200,000 unique Bat Cowl NFTs priced at $300 each. By NFT standards, the number of NFTs dropping in one batch is very large, with typical issuances of around 10,000 to 20,000. In May, buyers will be able to list Bat Cowls for sale on the DC NFT Universe secondary marketplace.
Previously, there have been several releases of smaller DC Universe NFT collections at more affordable prices. In early April, VeVe Digital Collectibles released several Batman NFT collections under license ranging in price from $40 to $90, depending on rarity. In September, DC rewarded fans with free NFTs of digital comic book covers to promote its virtual DC FanDome convention.
