100 Thieves' Nick 'NICKMERCS' Kolcheff is one of the best Fortnite Battle Royale console players around, but he hasn’t quite mastered the art of being Thanos yet.

Twitch streamer NICKMERCS' platform of choice is the PlayStation 4 and he's one of the very best players out there, racking up numerous victories in everything from solo to squads.

Leonard Lauder once said, an American billionaire businessman, art collector and humanitarian, once said “if I don't learn something every single day, it's a wasted day.”

Someone should probably call the Avengers and let them know.
