A full-on DC comics crossover could be coming in Fortnite Season 6.

While there’s already crossover skins coming as part of the release, more details leaked about the comics has got players hopeful for an event on the scale of Marvel’s collab in Season 4.

Prominent data miner ‘iFireMonkey’ shared cover arts and descriptions for the six comics early on March 9.

The comic descriptions tell a story of Batman’s journey across the Island, and getting stuck on the other side of the Zero Point.

The comics also imply that not only are the stories canon, but “the implications for both Fortnite and the DC universe will be huge.”

It also describes some “world-shattering events,” meaning the big Season 5 ending event on March 16 could tee up the massive DC universe crossover; as well as some “never before seen” areas of the Island. This is all rumors for now, but the community is hyped nevertheless.

Batman already has a skin in Fortnite, dating back to Season X. Numerous other DC characters have also been thrown onto the Island; most recently the Flash and Green Arrow. However, there’s potential for more, and a story to boot.

On top of the comic book leaks, ‘ShiinaBR’ shared a potential collab skin in Season 6 for DC supervillian Deathstroke.

“In the comics, Batman finds a deadly and ‘familiar hunter-for-hire’ on the Island. This description perfectly fits Deathstroke from the DC universe,” they added.

While this is all speculation, players are hopeful that DC gets the same love as the global phenom that is the Marvel Comic Universe.
