Is Fortnite Actually Part of the Marvel Universe?

If you’re a fan of Fortnite and the Marvel Universe, you may have noticed some interesting crossovers between the two worlds. But is Fortnite actually part of the Marvel Universe? Let’s take a closer look.

Fortnite Meets Marvel

Fortnite, the popular battle royale game, has had several collaborations with Marvel over the past few years. These collaborations have included limited-time game modes, skins based on popular Marvel characters, and even an entire season dedicated to the Marvel Universe.

The Nexus War

In 2020, Fortnite Season 4 was dubbed “The Nexus War” and centered around a storyline involving Thor and other popular Marvel characters. The season included new locations on the map such as Doom’s Domain (based on Doctor Doom) and Stark Industries (based on Tony Stark/Iron Man).

Players could also unlock skins based on popular Marvel characters such as Wolverine, Storm, and Mystique. The season even culminated in a live event where players battled Galactus, one of the most powerful villains in the Marvel Universe.

Other Collaborations

But “The Nexus War” wasn’t Fortnite’s only collaboration with Marvel. In 2018, Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War made a brief appearance in Fortnite as part of a limited-time game mode.

In 2019, Epic Games (the creators of Fortnite) partnered with Marvel to release Avengers: Endgame-themed content. This included new skins based on popular Avengers characters such as Captain America and Black Widow.

So Is Fortnite Actually Part of the Marvel Universe?

While there have been several crossovers between Fortnite and the Marvel Universe, it’s important to note that they are still separate entities. The events that take place in Fortnite do not impact or change the canon of the Marvel Universe in any way.

However, these collaborations have undoubtedly helped to bring new fans to both Fortnite and the Marvel Universe. It’s also worth noting that Epic Games has a history of collaborating with other franchises such as Star Wars and DC Comics.


In conclusion, while Fortnite and the Marvel Universe have had several collaborations over the past few years, Fortnite is not actually part of the Marvel Universe. However, these crossovers have been a fun and exciting way for fans of both franchises to come together and enjoy some unique content.

Whether or not there will be future collaborations between Fortnite and Marvel remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – both franchises will continue to be incredibly popular in their own right.
