A fresh Fortnite leak claims even more Marvel superhero abilities will be added throughout Season 4, including the return of Iron Man’s Repulsors, a new high-flying thunderous smash for Thor, and Black Panther’s Vibranium armor.

At the start of Fortnite Season 4, a handful of Marvel’s most iconic superheroes and villains descended on the battle royale. The crossover August 27 update added all-new cosmetics, weapons, and a host of Marvel points of interest.

The Marvel season has already brought in Doctor Doom from the Fantastic Four franchise, and the ability to wield his Mystical Bomb and Arcane Gauntlets in place of their usual weapons. Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy has his own abilities too.

A whole new bundle of Marvel characters, and their superhero abilities, will soon join the Season 4 party too ⁠— including Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, and more.

The original leaked set also had two more hero abilities for a character codenamed “Cherry,” marked “FireBall” and “FireJump.” This will likely be Inhuman hero Crystal, full name Crystalia Amaquelin, who wields fire when in battle.

Other suggestions have included Captain Marvel, who also starts with “C” and Fantastic Four hot-head the Human Torch. The flaming hero could land in Fortnite to challenge his arch-rival Doctor Doom, who is already in the game.

Finally, BoyFromHel1 revealed there was one last ability without an associated superhero: a simple “Punch,” from codename “Vertigo.” This could be Spider-Man, who is rumored to be on his way, but he’d be missing his web-slinging.

Spider-Man may well be the next Marvel hero to join the Fortnite roster.

Whoever it could be, we’ll just have to wait and see what Epic has planned. Fortnite has had plenty of unused content leaked in the past, so it’s best to take all things with a pinch of salt until you see it in-game.

The next POI to be added to Fortnite could also be Ant-Man’s shrinking manor, or a Wakandan monument for Black Panther, which has been found in the Fortnite files.

Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop was once a massive figure in the world of competitive Fortnite, but the star has stopped playing the battle royale title altogether, and finally revealed his reasons why in an October YouTube video.

Although CouRage got his start as a caster for MLG, he became synonymous with Fortnite in 2018-2019, going on to commentate several major events for the battle royale title — including the Fortnite World Cup, which he did the play-by-play for along with fellow star streamer DrLupo.

However, he has since stopped streaming the game altogether and has instead opted for other popular picks like Among Us and Warzone, leaving his Fortnite-centric viewers confused as to why he suddenly broke off from Fortnite.

While CouRage has been vocal about his hatred for skill-based matchmaking for some time, he finally explained his reasons for stepping away in a YouTube video on October 13, on the heels of the Chipotle Challenger Series.

CouRage and DrLupo cast several major Fortnite events, including the Summer Skirmish finals and the World Cup.

“Fortnite was a game that changed my life forever, and a game that kind of took my life by storm,” he began. “I fell in love with it when I played right on day number one… and now, three years, later… is something I will cherish forever.”

CouRage went on to explain that when he’d first started streaming the game, he “loved it arguably more than any game I’ve ever loved before.”

“But, like a lot of people, I believe the transition from Chapter 1 to Chapter 2… towards the end of Chapter 1, I was already falling out of love with the game,” he admitted. “It became more stressful than anything.”

CouRage cited Fortnite’s mechs as one of the reasons that led to him falling out of love with the game, as well as its steadily-growing, competitive atmosphere.

Citing a hatred of the game’s short-lived MECH robots after the Fortnite World Cup last year, he “wanted to love the game, but wasn’t able to,” also claiming that he felt its environment had changed from mostly casual to fiercely competitive during this time.

Of course, skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) played a part in this feeling, which he said was “one of the things that completely destroyed my love for the game.”

“I think it took away the ability for you to have as much fun as you once did,” he added. “Now in these games, it’s super sweaty, every fight’s a minute long… it became more stressful than anything.”

Although CouRage listed plenty of faults with the title as it currently stands, he made sure to express his love for Epic and hopes to work with the company for years to come, but will be shifting his content to other titles for the foreseeable future.

Epic have already revealed their plans to do another Fortnite World Cup in 2021, and considering how popular the former OpTic Gaming star is when it comes to hosting such events, it might not be too long before we see his name tied again to the battle royale.
