Marvel and Fortnite Team Up for a New Comic Mini-Series With Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Shuri
Marvel and Fortnite are teaming up again for a new comic book miniseries set to release in June 2022, starring 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 Zero Point fragment that has been sent to the Marvel Universe. Spider-Man and Wolverine will team up with Shuri and “a few Fortnite fans” to find this Zero Shard.
Spider-Geddon’s Christos Gage will be writing the story, and he’s teaming up with Epic Games CMO Donald Mustard and artist Sergio Davila (Captain Marvel) to bring this series to life, which will have “huge ramifications for both universes.”
Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War will contain five issues, and those who subscribe to Marvel Unlimited and read all the comics will be able to unlock a code for cosmetics in Fortnite. Every first print release will also contain a code to unlock bonus digital cosmetics in the battle royale.
A week after the release of each book, cosmetic items will be available for purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop. Detailed information about what these items will be will appear later.
“At its core, the series is an adventure story that brings characters from both universes together to go on a treasure hunt in the deepest, darkest depths of the Marvel Universe.” Marvel Comics editor Alanna Smith said, “Donald Mustard and Christos Gage are very passionate about Fortnite and Marvel, and Sergio Davila is turning some completely unrealistic pages. Having the amazing Leinil Francis Yu on the main covers and a killer cast of Marvel artists on the variants was also a real treat. It will be an unrivaled team that will feature the best of Fortnite and Marvel.”
