The teasers for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 have begun as we are in for an update which is now only 4 days away. In the middle of the controversy and removal from Apple App Store, Fortnite is set to launch its Chapter 2 Season 4 on August 27 which is in to have a grand crossover with Marvel Comic Universe.
Upon logging in Fortnite now, players are notified of a Comic book, which they can read in The Fortilla. There have been four pages revealed so far. The first two pages were launched yesterday which were titled “The Herald has found The Island. The prelude to War has begun. #FortniteSeason4”. On reading this comic, it suggests that the Marvel character The Herald, Thor & Galactus have made it to the Fortnite Island. A video of the comic is attached below:
Marvel Entertainment today took to twitter today and announced the release of two following pages of the yesterday’s comic and from what we decipher, none of the Fortnite characters that have been featured in the comic have said a word as yet. Thor is trying to warn them of what is to come and doesn’t want to fight, but it looks like the characters in Fortnite are not so trustworthy.
His warning is dire. Will they hear?

An interesting caption which read “The Herald has found The Island. The prelude to War has begun. Experience Part 1 in-game now…” was added to the the first teaser of the Marvel X Fortnite season.
The ‘Herald’ here supposedly refers to Thor, who is also known as the “Herald of Thunder’ in the Marvel universe. As for the War, the fans were quick to suggest that the caption was touching on Epic’s real-life war against Apple and Google.
The most recent evolve in the game play has made the players notice a new rift in the sky above the island. This highly appears to be related to the superhero theme as it could pave a path for the incoming herald of thunder himself, Thor.
Fans were in a buzz but slightly demented when the rumors of the crossover began. However it all ended when a couple of days ago, Fortnite took to twitter to hint upon the latest update which would include Marvel characters like the Norse God of Thunder, Thor whose 2020 comic book series was used in the logo in the teaser.

This would however not be the first appearance of a Marvel character in Fortnite. In the past, there have been several Marvel characters that have been included in the widely popular battle royale game. The Avengers-themed modes in 2018 and 2019 included Deadpool, Captain America, Black Widow, Star-Lord, and X-Force members Cable, Psylocke, and Domino. Not just Marvel but DC Comics characters like Batman, Aquaman, Catwoman, and others have also been featured in the game.
There are high possibilities of more pages of the Marvel X Fortnite comic to follow in the coming few days. Stay tuned with us as we’ll keep you updated on all the Fortnite Season 4 teasers as they’re released.
