Epic Games had added in loads of iconic superheroes from the Marvel universe.

Top names include Iron Man and Thor (of The Avengers fame), as well as Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Other major characters landing in Fortnite include Storm, Mystique, Doctor Doom and She-Hulk – lesser-known but longstanding and popular Marvel creations.

And we can even expect to see a surprise debut by Wolverine later in the season, but details are light so far.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 – what’s the story?

The new season launched with an in-game comic book that details the storyline behind the new season.

Specifically, Fortnite’s mysterious island has drawn together Thor and legendary Marvel baddie Galactus.

To deal with the growing threat, Thor recruited his fellow Marvel do-gooders.

In the comic, Thor is seen to drop his hammer, creating a mammoth crater on the island that now exists in-game.

And these super-heroes will do more than just provide new storylines to chew over. They’ll have an impact on your gameplay too.

The Battle Pass has, of course, been updated with new goodies to collect.

This time around, you can complete special quests from Marvel’s legendary heroes, letting you unlock their “Awakening” – a special emote.
