HOW DOES ANY OF THIS FIT IN WITH THE THOR COMICS?

In the latest run of Thor comicskicked off with a new #1 in January of this year and is written by Donny Cates, drawn by Nic Klein, and colored by Matt Wilson. In it, the god of thunder becomes King of Asgard, then becomes Galactus’ Herald in order to prevent the end of the universe.

Apparently, according to Galactus, an evil force called the Black Winter is coming to destroy the universe, and the only way it can be saved is if Galactus consumes several specific planets. Thor accompanies him in order to evacuate each planet before Galactus eats it. It’s somewhere around here, a planet or two into Galactus’ multi-planet buffet, where the Fortnite season and comic appear to be set — which seems to be about issue #4 of the comic run.

WILL OTHER MARVEL CHARACTER SHOW UP DURING THIS SEASON?

While the comics didn’t involve too much of the rest of the Marvel universe until issue #5, things started to get interesting after that. In issue #6, Thor receives a vision from Black Winter, which can show mortals’ their own death, in which several iconic Marvel character had become zombies — which would definitely make for an exciting Fortnite Halloween event if season 4 lasts that long.

Issue #7 of the series isn’t out yet, but the cover and description both suggest that more Marvel heroes could be on their way into the story. The cover features the Mjolnir, along with the hands of several characters, like Iron Man, competing to grab it. Issue #7 isn’t set to release until Sept. 16 which would mean that other heroes will show up later … or maybe not.

While we still can’t say for sure which heroes from the Marvel universe will make their way to Fortnite v bucks generator, we should know more once the season launches on Aug. 27, and there are sure to be a few surprises during the season as well.
