A new season of Fortnite is upon us. The fate of the island remains uncertain, with a dangerous enemy heading its way. However, a few superheroes and the island's inhabitants have joined forces to defeat this common foe.
The new season's narrative is based around Fortnite vs Galactus, or that's what most of us made of the trailer, dubbed the 'Nexus War'.
Along with freshly arrived paladins and mysterious storyline developments, a horde of smaller changes, including weapon nerfs and new locations, have also made their way in-game.
For now, the Fortnite Season 4 storyline seems to be moving in a direction where Marvel's heroes and the game's characters work together to stop 'Galactus' from consuming the Fortnite universe.

Some of the Marvel superheroes like Groot and Doctor Doom have had some abilities added, which was tracked by Skin-Tracker. Here are the added powers:
