The Fortnite/Marvel crossover began when Donny Cates and Nic Klein's current Thor story arc spun off into a 10-page story by Cates and artist Greg Land which debuted in-game (opens in new tab) this year (which was reprinted in Fantastic Four #24 (opens in new tab).)
And earlier today, it was announced that Marvel heroes would be featured in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 (opens in new tab) in an event dubbed 'Nexus War.'
And this Fortnite/Marvel crossover appears to be ongoing, with Marvel saying in a press release "... and be sure to keep your eyes peeled in Marvel comics to catch hints of where these characters go – and return from – next!"
Of course, signs of this crossover have already begun in Fortnite with the appearance of Wolverine claw marks hidden across the game world (opens in new tab) - here are all the Fortnite Wolverine claw mark locations (opens in new tab).
