Marvel and Fortnite are once again teaming up for a new comic mini-series that will launch in June 2022 and star Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Shuri.
As detailed on Marvel.com, Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War follows 2020’s Fortnite X Marvel – Nexus War: Thor and has our heroes on the hunt for a crystallized fragment of the Zero Point that was sent to the Marvel Universe. Spider-Man and Wolverine will team up with Shuri and “several fan-favorites from Fortnite” to find this Zero Shard.
Spider-Geddon’s Christos Gage will be writing the story and he is teaming up with Epic Games’ CCO Donald Mustard and artist Sergio Davila (Captain Marvel) to bring this series to life that will have “enormous ramifications for both universes.”
Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War will contain five issues and those who are subscribed to Marvel Unlimited and read all of the comics will be able to unlock a code for a cosmetic in Fortnite. Each first print issue will also contain a code to unlock a bonus digital cosmetic in the battle royale.
One week following each book’s release, the cosmetics will be made available for purchase in Fortnite’s Item Shop. Details on what these items will be will come at a later date.
“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.” Marvel Comics editor Alanna Smith said, “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.”
