Last year, the worlds of Fortnite and the Marvel U crashed together in the popular Fortnite x Marvel: Nexus War- Thor. Since then, various Marvel characters have shown up across Fortnite. Now the crossover comes back to comics with a new miniseries event this June.
Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War will bring these two popular universes back together, in a five issue series from Christos Gage, Epic Games’ Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard, and Sergio Davíla. The series promises heroes from both universes teaming up for a treasure hunt within the Marvel Universe.
Prom the official announcement press release: The comic’s story follows the inhabitants on the Island who are locked in what seems to be a never-ending war, and only one thing has the potential to turn the tide — a crystallized fragment of the Zero Point that was cast into the Marvel Universe. Spider-Man and Wolverine team up with Shuri and several fan-favorites from Fortnite to hunt down the elusive Zero Shard. Will these allies be able to find it in time and avert catastrophe? And can the heroes of Marvel and Fortnite’s realities hold off the Imagined Order long enough to give them a fighting chance?
Marvel Comics editor Alanna Smith says about the project, “At its heart, the series is an adventure story, with characters from both universes coming together to go on a treasure hunt into the deepest, darkest depths of the Marvel Universe.” Smith continues, “Donald Mustard and Christos Gage have such a deep love for both Fortnite and Marvel, and Sergio Davíla is turning in some absolutely unreal pages. Having the amazing Leinil Francis Yu on main covers and a killer lineup of Marvel artists on variants has been a real gift as well. This is going to be the ultimate team-up, where the best of both Fortnite and Marvel are represented.”
As an added bonus, the print editions of the comic will feature a code for an in-game cosmetic, and there will be another cosmetic for anyone who reads the series on Marvel Unlimited.
