Fortnite Batman Zero Point comic book series: Release date, Price, Rewards and more details
The official blog for the Fortnite Batman Zero Point comic mentions the following as a premise to the narrative:
"A crack splits the sky above Gotham City... a tear in reality itself. This rift pulls the Dark Knight into a bizarre and unfamiliar world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from… DC’s Batman has been drawn into Fortnite! As our hero fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more. While the World's Greatest Detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point."
The official blog hints at a "multiverse" that players could see in the comic book series.
The blog had some images from the first issue of the Fortnite Batman Zero Point.
Batman has lost his memory and is fighting anyone that crosses his path. He has also figured out that Fortnite Island runs a simulation for about 22 minutes.
The blog also reveals that Batman will meet Catwoman in the second issue of the comic book series. Images suggest that they will have an initial fight, but will soon band together to contain Zero Point.
Previous leaks about the third edition of Fortnite Batman Zero Point revealed that Batman will be facing Snake Eyes from G.I Joe. This proves that the multiverse will incorporate superheroes from different storylines and universes.
Players might get to see iconic Fortnite characters like Agent Jonesy, Peely, The Foundation, and the Seven in the sixth issue of the comic book series.
After gathering all the information from official previews, leaks, and blogs surrounding the Fortnite Batman Zero Point comic book series, a clear pattern emerges. Batman will eventually team up with the heroes present on the island to contain the Zero Point.
