Fortnite is certainly no stranger to crossovers. The Master Chief, Rick and Morty, and, hell, even Will Smith have had their run with Epic Games’ wild and constantly evolving battle royale. DC has also brought some of its popular characters into the game. In April, DC and Epic celebrated a Fortnite and Batman mashup with the comic book miniseries called Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point. The twice-monthly comic came with Batman-themed outfits and gliders to unlock for the game. However, after six issues the series has ended. For those who missed out, the two companies have revealed the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point hardcover, a collection of every comic, complete with all the in-game items.
For those who slept on the comic series, Zero Point starred the caped crusader getting sucked into the Fortnite world. A crack appeared over the skies of Gotham City, dragging Batman and other characters, like Harley Quinn, into it. Naturally, they awake with no memory. Instead of asking why they were dressed in goofy costumes, the crew grabbed weapons and joined the fray. I’m sure many fans feel that Batman using guns is sacrilege. But hey, in this amnesia-fueled fever dream that is Fortnite battle royale, we have to give some of the goofy shit a pass and call it non-canon. I mean, it worked when Batman threw hands with the Predator.
The Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point hardcover comes with all issues and seven in-game items. Some of the latter include the Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit, the Batman Zero Wing Glider, the Batarang Axe Pickaxe, and the Armored Batman Zero Outfit (seen above).
How is a grappling claw a pickaxe?
The book will be available on September 7. You can get it digitally or at “participating bookstores.” If you’re curious about whether or not you’d want to pick up the collection, never fear. Comixology is giving away the first issue free on September 18 for Batman Day. Here are all the items it comes with:
- Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit
- Batman Zero Wing Glider
- Catwoman’s Grappling Claw Pickaxe
- Deathstroke Destroyer Glider
- Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling
- Batarang Axe Pickaxe
