However, the most fruitful collaboration to date has been with Marvel characters, nearly every single one of whom has been featured in Fortnite as a cosmetic outfit. Some of these were relatively simple to obtain and have since appeared on several occasions in the Item Shop, whereas others are considered rare because they were never seen again.

In contrast, the reintroduction of Chapter 1 items into Fortnite Season OG also resulted in the return of one of the rarest item shop skins – the original Black Widow outfit which debuted in the shop on April 25, 2019 and has not been seen since the Avengers: Endgame collaboration.
