Fortnite takes a big step in bringing to life our childhood fantasies about heroes belonging to different universes collaborating to fight evil. The new game now contains sins based on Marvel, DV, Star Wars, Tron, Naruto, Street Fighter and also some of the countless others.
has some kind of batman/Fortnite: Zero Point from 2021 Zero just revealed a major escalation about the difference with no wind on the fortnite island there is also a snippet of Zero Points lands in the MCU that forces all heroes of Fortnite to participate with the forces together with the Avengers to prevent such a disaster that could affect all worlds.
The comic series will bring in the Zero Point writing team: Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard and prolific Marvel writer Christos Gage, along with Sergio Davila in charge of art.
DC Universe to Marvel
The assumption is that Zero War is one of the closest things comic fans can see to the true Marvel/DC crossover for the foreseeable future. Zero war’s built-in conflict regarding Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point and the previous, Thor-centric Fortnite x Marvel. According to Gage, “it’s still a delight.”
He also added: “If anything, it’s more instinctive now, as Donald and I are very familiar with each other’s creative processes, but that was true halfway through Batman/Fortnite… we clicked really fast. So from a collaborating with Donald standpoint, it felt like a direct sequel. We both love comics, we both love the lore of Fortnite, and we both want to deliver something amazing for fans of both the comics and the game. Hopefully that was shown last time and it will be shown again this time.”
War Zero vs. Zero Point
The major change between them is that Gage and Mustard are working with Davila, whose current Marvel work contains Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade. When Davila’s style is very similar in some ways to what we can see in Zero Point, Gage said. “The idea is to find the best artist for the story we hope to tell, and when[editor Alanna Smith]recommended Sergio, we saw what he had been doing with his clever designs and crazy action scenes and we knew he was perfect.”
He also added: “Since we’re depicting what is basically the culmination of the war between the Seven and the Imagined Order, the poor guy was going to have to draw armies, but he was also going to have to do some smaller, more focused scenes. on the characters they work too. And he’s done it brilliantly, as the pictures released so far show without a doubt. He’s the hardest worker on the team, hands down!”
We previously said this isn’t the first time Marvel/Fortnite has done a comic crossover, this time things are bigger than 2020’s Fortnite x Marvel: Nexus War-Thor #1. The comic is mostly a written story, Zero War. it is primarily a five-issue show that tells the full story. Gage also teases that there may be some major connection points between the comic and the game, especially with the Zero War airing climaxing just later in 2022, Gage said,”
Zero War: Heroes
We’ve seen another noticeable difference between his previous convergence and the Zero War miniseries along with the former stem from a very specific moment in Donny Cate, like the ongoing Thor series. Now, the team and costume assistants also reflect the current state of Marvel U very well.
Gage said, “There will be some things you see in both the game and the comic, mostly in our final issue,” also adding, “But for the most part, what happens in the game and what happens in the comic are different. fronts in the same war. Some questions players may have about the game are answered in the comic and vice versa, though neither is required to follow the story in the other.”
According to Gage, the most challenging thing was writing a comic that could also be accessible to Fortnite fans who also can’t read Marvel comics and comic book fans. It is seriously very difficult to balance. However, Gage listens to Smith’s editorial advice and uses Wolverine and Spider-Man as the main focus to provide critical information to Fornite newcomers.
Gage said, “We talked about the fact that in the future, people will read the story as a collected edition,” Gage noted. “So the emphasis wasn’t on ‘This moment takes place on page X of comic Y.’ Now, we’re reflecting the current status quo of the Marvel Universe. The Avengers lineup is what it is currently in the Avengers title. But someone who buys the collected edition two or three years from now won’t need to know exactly what issue of Avengers came out that month and what was going on in it.”
The comic also takes a sizable cast from Marvel’s roster of Marvel heroes, but there’s also the story of mostly all three: Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Shuri. The most recent cast and characters were not established as mandated by Epic or Marvel. Based on which one is suitable for the tale, and also depends on the character’s affinity to form a creative team.
Gage said: “It was a challenge because you have to keep in mind that this will be read by both Fortnite fans who aren’t steeped in Marvel lore and vice versa, but luckily everyone on the creative team knew about it and was eager to make it accessible.” …That’s why they gave us 30 pages for issue 1. (The following issues are the usual 20 pages…until our explosive 30 page finale!)
Our editor, Alanna, had a brilliant suggestion after reading the first draft of the script for the first issue, which was to move Spidey finding Wolverine from the end of the issue to the beginning, and then have Spidey narrate the entire issue as one. kind of flashback. her while he brings Wolvie up to date. Which was great. Because now, instead of exposition, you have Spider-Man’s distinctive voice telling this crazy story about converging realities and giant robots and endless battles where people break up to dance every once in a while.”
Gage added, “I’ve written my share of Spider-Man for the last 17 years… a bunch of comics and a PS4/5 video game you may have heard of… so his voice jumps into my head quite naturally. Alanna’s approach made it all fall into place. And that, folks, is just one aspect of what makes a good editor.”
Epic has also added all sorts of new characters to Fortnite in 2022. In this, we’ll see Nathan Drake from the Uncharted movie and games, Marvel’s Moon Knight, Swayne Johnson, Bruno Mars, and the outfits come from Cobra Kai.
“Donald has loved Wolverine, and specifically his ‘Patch’ identity from the early days of his first solo series,” Gage said. “Every time we talked on Zoom, he could see two pages of the original art from that book framed on the wall behind him. So we decided to use that version of Wolverine. The idea is that when he wants to take a breather from all that’s going on on Krakoa, Logan heads to Madripoor for a cheap beer and a good fight, and that’s where we find him.
Donald also wanted to use Spidey, who’s in Fortnite now, and I love a little bit of Spidey, so that was a big round of applause. I think it was Alanna who suggested Shuri after the conversation about Patch led to the idea of an almost Indiana Jones-style search for an artifact; in this case, the Zero Shard, a crystallized piece of Zero Point itself that was broken off and returned to the Marvel Universe when Galactus was kicked out of Reality Zero in the previous Marvel/Fortnite crossover.”
Gage continued, “We were talking about cool Marvel locations and of course Wakanda came along and we realized that Shuri was a natural. There was also a discussion about which Fortnite characters would have good chemistry with the Marvel characters we were using. So we have a very familiar Fortnite character in Jones, who we’ll learn some previously unrevealed things about, and a recently introduced character in The Imagined. Conversely, there are some Marvel characters appearing in Fortnite right now, like Moon Knight, who aren’t in the comic at all. It was about the story and what it serves.”
It all seems to feed into the Epic Games metaverse along with Coachella’s collaboration with that main feed on the concept of bringing “The Real World” into that shared online space. Kirbi, the parent company of Sony and LEGO, also invested $2 billion in the publisher.
