The worlds of Batman and G.I. Joe are on a collision course. In the upcoming Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point miniseries, the Caped Crusader will be going toe-to-toe with Snake Eyes. Yes, the Snake Eyes from the G.I. Joe universe. Though it seems like an odd place for this crossover to happen, it is indeed happening.
The series was originally announced by DC Comics in February. The six-issue series will see the DC universe crossing over with the popular video game. Now it has been revealed that the third issue will see Batman coming face to face with Snake Eyes.
Here is the synopsis for Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #3.
“Batman versus Snake Eyes. That’s it. That’s the solicit. You heard us, BATMAN VERSUS SNAKE EYES! Yes, THAT Snake Eyes! Worlds collide on the Island as G.I. Joe’s unstoppable ninja clashes with the Dark Knight! Can either of them win, when neither can escape? Will Batman remember he’s got to find a way back to Catwoman, all while trying to get back to Gotham City? And what the heck is Harley Quinn doing here?! Oh, and in case we forgot to mention it: Batman. Fighting. Snake Eyes. Do not miss it!”
Christos Gage wrote the series, working from a concept and story consultation from Chief Creative Officer of Epic Games, Donald Mustard. Reilly Brown, Christian Duce, Nelson DeCastro and John Kalisz contributed art for the series.
“When DC first approached me about doing a Batman/Fortnite series I thought it would be a lot of fun,” Cage said. ”After speaking with Donald and discovering just how deeply we’d be diving into the secrets behind the world of Fortnite, I was amazed! This series will reveal things about Fortnite that have never been seen or heard before yet are very much part of the canon of the game.”
DC’s synopsis for Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 reads as follows.
“A crack splits the sky above Gotham City…a tear in reality itself. This rift pulls the Dark Knight into a bizarre and unfamiliar world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from…Batman has been drawn into Fortnite! As our hero fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more.
While the world’s greatest detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point. Uncover secrets never before revealed in-game or anywhere else! Every fan of Batman, Fortnite, stunning art, and edge-of-your-seat excitement won’t want to miss the Caped Crusader facing off against Fortnite champions on the Island in a desperate attempt to save not only himself, but other familiar faces from the DCU…and perhaps the Multiverse itself!”
