Last week, Marvel Comics and Fortnite fans finally got to witness the collision of both universes in the debut issue of the Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War mini-series.
Written by veteran Marvel writer Christos Gage (Spider-Geddon) and Epic Games' Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard and drawn by artist Sergio Davíla, the five-issue epic is packed with revelations and action, starring Fortnite’s greatest heroes as they team up with Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Shuri, and more to prevent total annihilation.
The battles ahead will have major repercussions for both universes, and right now, you can get a first look at the Zero War's final showdown on the cover of Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #5!
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. However, by this issue, the most dangerous person in the Marvel Universe has thrown in with some of the most dangerous people in the Fortnite universe. But what does Doom really want? And how far will he go to get it?
"There’ll be a few things you see in both the game and the comic - mostly in our final issue," Gage revealed during a recent interview. "But for the most part, what happens in the game and what happens in the comic are different fronts in the same war."
"Some questions that players might have about the game are answered in the comic, and vice versa, though neither are required to follow the story in the other," he finished by teasing.
