We already know that Fortnite Chapter 4 is bringing in several Marvel characters that have been confirmed in the video game’s latest trailers. But is it possible you could also get a skin that would make you say, “Wakanda forever”? A new Nexus War leak reveals that Black Panther could be one of the available skins in the Epic Games title.
The revelation comes from Fortnite leaker HYPEX who shared some audio files from the game and one of the abilities features in the audio is called “Kinetic Absorption” which sounds a lot like one of Black Panther’s signature moves. Check it out below.

“There’s a good chance we might get a Black Panther skin this season, Here’s his abilities and the sounds of one of them ‘Kinetic Absorption,'” HYPEX wrote.
It does sound familiar and the ability itself is described pretty much in the same way that Black Panther’s suit works. In the 2018 film, T’Challa’s suit is designed to absorb all types of damage and then recycle it to his advantage. This was shown several times in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie so it wouldn’t be a surprise if this shows up in Fortnite Season 4.
The description for Fortnite Season 4 Chapter 2 reads as follows:
“Unlock Thor, Iron Man, Storm, Mystique, Doctor Doom, Groot, and She-Hulk and suit up in a battle to save all of Reality. Restore their memories and awaken the Hero within. Be warned, Wolverine has been spotted on the Island and he won’t come quietly. Unlock him, his gear and classic style later in the Season.”
