Today sees the publication of Batman/Fortnite: The Foundation one-shot, racing to the top of the charts with a downloadable Batman: The Man Who Laughs skin, as the forces of Lex Luthor and Batman Who Laughs invading the Fortnite Island for their own purposes, and the forces of the Justice League there to stop them. But along the way, Batman encounters the Fortnite figure The Foundation, pitted against The Imagined Order and gives us a Brief History of Muliversal Time for both Fortnite and for the DC Comics multiverse as a whole.
Previously in Justice League, guest-writer Scott Snyder had rewritten the history of the DC Multiverse as the creation of Perpetua, who recruited first Luthor then The Batman Who Laughs as part of her destructive whole. But, even as it's recognised that somehow The Batman Who Laughs escaped his demise at the end of Dark Metal, and without his Dr Manhattan-based powers, so it's time for a rewrite.
So we have The Foundation in Gotham City Harbour. And establishing his or her position within Fortnite hierarchy.
With The Imagined Order as responsible for the multiversal rifts that have gathered all the warriors to Fortnite Island from the DC Universe and far beyond, rather than just taking advantage of them.
That the Foundation was responsible for the spiral tower around the Zero Point in a previous Chapter of Fortnite.
And that the Zero Point marks the beginning of the Universe, the entire Multiverse.
And by manipulating the very building blocks of the Multiverse, that's how the Imagined Order switch from one reality to another and gather their subjects. And have found a way to do wo without the Zero Point anymore…
But that members of the Imagined Order are mostly absent from Fortnite Island… for now. And with Donald Mustard as co-writer of this comic alongside Scott Snyder and Christos Gage, this is about as canon as it can get without being a cut scene. Batman/Fortnite: The Foundation One-Shot is published by DC Comics today, with a downloadable The Batman Who Laughs skin, alongside other digital goodies. Most comic shops should have copies, they will have learned from last time…
