In recent months, Fortnite: Battle Royale has experienced booming success to become one of the most popular games in recent memory.

The game has taken elements of other popular BR titles and combined them with unique building mechanics and a stunning animated visual.

Fortnite has been separated into seasons, with each one having its own theme. Currently, Season 3 is coming to and end with Season 4 set to start on May 1st.

While nothing has been officially confirmed, it appears that Season 4 will have a superhero theme as Fortnite have tweeted out teaser posters over the past several days that have hinted at iconic characters from the DC comic universe.

While developer Epic Games may not be able to feature these exact superheroes in the game due to licensing issues, they could easily include ones that closely resemble the superheroes without breaking legal boundaries.

They have not been shy about using this sort of tactic before, with the famous ‘Reaper’ skin having the likeness of the fictional John Wick assassin character from the popular John Wick movie series.

Designer Calvin ‘T0XIN’ Boyera creative artist for The Rise Nation esports organization, has designed a few incredible superhero skin and back bling/pickaxe concepts from the DC comic universe for Season 4 of Fortnite.

Whether these characters do make it into Season 4 or not, almost everyone would agree that seeing them, or something in close resemblance in-game, would be awesome.

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
