Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 Early Preview: Shaken Foundations

In Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1, Hal Jordan goes crazy and becomes Parallax, then attempts to reboot the DC Uni… oh, wait, sorry, that's the plot of the 1998 DC Comics super-mega-crossover event, Zero Hour. This one is even stupider: it's a video game tie-in where Wolverine, Shuri, and Spider-Man team up with characters from Fortnite to hunt down something called the Zero Shard, with the outcome having "enormous ramifications" for both the Marvel and Fortnite universes. In other words, the Fortnite and Marvel Universes will be shaken to their foundations, leaving nothing the same again. Except the press release revealing this early lettered preview also claims that the comic isn't required reading and the game isn't required playing. So what is required? Giving Marvel those 6 bucks, of course. Or more, with the variants. Check out the preview below.

Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1
by Christos Gage & Sergio Dávila, cover by Leinil Yu
THE MARVEL UNIVERSE COLLIDES WITH FORTNITE! The inhabitants on the Island are locked in what seems like 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. Spider-Man and Wolverine team up with several Fornite fighters and new recruit Shuri to hunt down the elusive Zero Shard. Will these allies be able to find it in time and avert catastrophe? And can the heroes of the Marvel and Fortnite realities hold off the Imagined Order long enough to give them a fighting chance? Epic Games' Chief Creative Officer, Donald Mustard, teams up with veteran Marvel writer Christos Gage (SPIDER-GEDDON, AVENGERS ACADEMY) and artist Sergio Dávila (CAPTAIN MARVEL) for a five-part crossover event with enormous ramifications for both universes! Each first print issue contains a redeemable code to unlock a bonus digital cosmetic in Fortnite! See issue for details.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
