Galactus Finally Arrives On Fortnite On December 1st

As my youngest has been telling me all day, Galactus is coming to Fortnite islands. It has been set up ever since Fortnite Season 4 went live and all Marvel-ified earlier this year, as the comic books by Donny Cates and Greg Land showed the arrival of Marvel characters in the Fortnite world, with crossovers all over Marvel titles, and the game was transformed by Doom's Domain, Wolverine in the woods, Tony Stark's Industries on the raised plateau, Stark robots defending the crashed quinjets and Galactus-themed killer robots roaming the plains. But the arrival of Galactus, the world devoured himself, potentially followed by Black Winter, will make this an entirely different game. Apparently.

Galactus, created by Jack Kirby with Stan Lee for the Fantastic Four was, basically, a god. Who travels from world to world, to devour their energy, killing all life as he does so. It is pretty much only the Fantastic Four who have been able to hold him back, In the time that Fortnite x Marvel: The Legacy War is set, Thor is playing the role of his herald rather than the Silver Surfer, hence his variant design in the game…
