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 DC universe… and perhaps the Multiverse too!
Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point (Issue #1)
Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 arrives at your favorite comics shop or digitally to DC UNIVERSE INFINITE (US-only) on April 20, 2021. Issue #1 launches day-and-date in North America, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and the Czech Republic; and there are plans to release the full series in Japan, Korea, and France later this fall. Following Issue #1, the next installments will arrive twice monthly in May (May 4/May 18) and June (June 1/June 15). The six-part series concludes with a thrilling finale on July 6.
Each print issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items inspired by the events in the comic, starting with the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. As an additional reward, any player who redeems all six codes from each of the six comic book issues will unlock the new Armored Batman Zero Outfit!
Can’t get your hands on a print copy? We’ve got you covered. All items will also be available in the Item Shop day-and-date with each comic book’s release, with the exception of Issue #1’s Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. That Outfit will be available first exclusively as a part of the comic book but will release in the Item Shop later in June 2021.
Each issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include bold/dynamic main and variant covers from legendary artists, including the Issue #3 variant cover featuring Batman vs. Snake-Eyes from DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer, Jim Lee. In addition to incredible main covers from artist Mikel Janín, some of comics’ most talented artists will be providing variant covers for this six-issue limited series, including Arthur Adams and Sabine Rich, Dan Mora (Detective Comics), and Amanda Conner (Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey).
Collectors will also want to be on the lookout for the limited-run premium variant covers, which come from Epic Games Chief Creative Officer, Donald Mustard.
A Closer Look
Here’s a first look at Issue #1, plus a sneak peek into what to expect in Issue #2...
Issue #1 (April 20, 2021)
Issue #2 (May 4, 2021)
Batman is trapped on the Island – he’s unable to speak, his memory is gone, and he has to fight to survive against the deadliest warriors of countless worlds. Can the World’s Greatest Detective escape this trap when time itself resets every 22 minutes? And will the presence of someone else from Gotham City – a familiar feline fatale – help or hinder his efforts... especially when they don’t remember each other? In another life, they were enemies, friends, and partners… but here on the Island, can they do anything but battle to the end?
The details are almost as numerous as Batman’s gadgets! With so much to track, here’s a rundown of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point release dates, Item Shop bonuses, and when Items will be available for purchase. This list will be updated as the storyline unfolds, so keep checking back!

How can I get access to Items available with the Batman/Fortnite comics?
There are two ways to get the items that are a part of the Batman/Fortnite crossover event:
- Purchase print versions of the Batman/Fortnite comic books from your local comics shop. The print version of each of the comic book issues contains one unique code that unlocks that issue’s in-game item. If you redeem the code from all six issues of the Batman/Fortnite crossover, you’ll receive a bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit. The hardcover collected edition, available on September 7, 2021, collects all six comic books and includes one unique code that unlocks all seven items.
- Purchase the in-game items directly in the Fortnite game, with V-Bucks.*
Note: In order to get the bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit, all six codes must be redeemed on the same Epic Games account.
*The suggested retail price of a Batman/Fortnite comic book is $4.99 ($5.99 for a card stock variant cover). While the in-game cost of items varies by item, the item featured in Issue #2 (the Batman Zero Wing Glider) is currently 1,200 V-Bucks.
Do I need to redeem codes from all six issues to get the Armored Batman Zero Outfit?
Yes. The Armored Batman Zero Outfit will be provided at no additional cost if you redeem a code from each of the six issues or if you redeem the code from the hardcover collected edition. In order to get the bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit, all six codes must be redeemed on the same Epic Games account. However, if, for example, you redeem five codes but purchase the sixth item from Fortnite’s store, you will not be eligible to receive the Armored Batman Zero Outfit at no additional cost. In this case, you would need to purchase the Armored Batman Zero Outfit in the Fortnite store separately (or redeem the sixth code).
What happens if I redeem a code for Batman/Fortnite Zero Point content that’s already in my Fortnite locker?
This will not return V-Bucks to your account, but redeeming a code would allow you to still be eligible for the bonus Armored Batman Zero Outfit after redeeming all six codes.
Will I still qualify for the Armored Batman Outfit if I purchased an individual Batman item from the Item Shop?
If you already own an Outfit, you can still redeem a code for the same item. This will not return V-Bucks to your account, but it would allow you to still be eligible for the Armored Batman Zero Outfit after redeeming all six codes.
As long as all six comic code redemptions are on the same Epic account, you should be eligible for the Armored Batman Zero Outfit.
How long will the physical comic issues be sold in comic shops?
Check with your preferred comic book retailer for details on availability. We recommend consulting your local shop to see how long they plan to carry each issue.
The Batman Zero Point items make up a Bundle in the Item Shop. How does redeeming an item in the Bundle affect the Item Shop price of the Bundle?
The Bundle price is adaptive. If you redeem a code for a certain item in the Bundle, the total V-Bucks price of the Bundle will decrease accordingly.
What’s the difference between the Batman Zero Outfit and the Armored Batman Zero Outfit?
The Batman Zero Outfit is the Outfit that released in the Item Shop to coincide with the release of comic issue #2. The Armored Batman Zero Outfit is the Outfit that’s unlocked after redeeming all six comic codes. Though named similarly, both are different Outfits; one is not a different Style of the other.
Will the Armored Batman Zero Outfit be available in the Item Shop?
Yes. Following all comic releases, the Armored Batman Zero Outfit will additionally be available in the Item Shop.
Where are the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comics available?
The series launches day-and-date in North America, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and the Czech Republic. Additional countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, South America, and Latin America will also have a limited number of print comic books available. Be sure to check your preferred local comic book store for availability.
I downloaded the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point digital comic from a 3rd Party site (Comixology, Comics App on Google Play); can I still get my bonus digital codes for the cosmetic items?
Sorry, the offer for bonus digital codes is limited to print issues.
How do I redeem my code for my bonus digital item?
- Visit fortnite.com/redeem.
- Select Your Preferred Platform or “Sign In With Epic Games” if you already have an Epic Account.
- Verify that you are logged into the correct account.
- You should see a display name in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Enter or copy/paste the code as-is into the “Enter Access Code” text field.
- Select “REDEEM."
- Verify the item you are redeeming and select “ACTIVATE."
- Launch Fortnite with the same Epic account.
- Select Battle Royale.
- Upon loading in, you will receive a gift box showing your unlocked cosmetics. You can select EQUIP or CLAIM to close. Cosmetics will then be available in your Locker.
I’m not located in a country where the comic book will be available; can I still get the Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit and the other digital items from the comic book?
Yes, the Fortnite cosmetic items will also be available in the Item Shop. Rebirth Harley Quinn will only be available with the bonus code in the comic book beginning April 20, but she will be available in the Item Shop later this summer. All other Fortnite/Batman Zero Point cosmetics will be available in the Item Shop day-and-date with the bonus code in the comic book.
