New leaks for Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 suggest that the previous season may be making a comeback with a Marvel themed POI possibly on the way.
It’s not unusual for Fortnite to add or alter POI’s in the middle of a season, with this season already introducing a small Walking Dead reference into the game. While the leaks do suggest that Marvel will be returning to the map in some way, information about the exact nature of a Marvel-themed Fortnite POI are not yet known.
Evidence for Marvel’s return to Fortnite Season 5
Currently, the best evidence that Marvel will be returning to Fortnite this season is the decrypted graphic and audio for Marvel’s portal. It’s likely that this portal will be added to the game following a planned advancement in the season arc for Fortnite season 5.
If the previous Walking Dead crossover is anything to go by, Agent Jonsey will likely bring Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster from the Marvel universe back into Fortnite.
Given that this season of Fortnite is themed around bounty hunters and generally strong individuals, these three characters were likely chosen for their incredibly individual v buck generator capabilities. Of the three, Taskmaster is perhaps the one players will be familiar with, as he was not featured in the previous seasons or movies to date.
Taskmaster is a mercenary with an outfit that can best be described as three classic RPG classes rolled into one angry skeletron. He carries a sword, shield, and bow, and possesses the ability to perfectly mimic the fighting styles and techniques of anyone he sees.
Anyone who played the classic fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be at least somewhat familiar with him, while others will have to wait for his appearance in Black Widow to see his character on screen.
