 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 earlier this month (which will be reprinted in September 30's Fantastic Four #24.)

And earlier today, it was announced that Marvel heroes would be featured in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 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 - here are all the Fortnite Wolverine claw mark locations.
