Fortnite’s newest hero has already leaked, according to streamer SypherPK. In a video posted to his YouTube channel, Sypher broke down a leak from HYPEX that explains the ability of the next Marvel hero coming to Fortnite.
During his video, Sypher breaks down the following tweet from HYPEX, a known Fortnite leaker and news source.
Sypher notes that Crystal, from the Fantastic Four comics, has powers based controlling the elements, which seems to fit the description of the next hero. Crystal was a Stan Lee product from 1965 and was married to Quicksilver.
It is worth nothing that the next hero seems to have two versions of their ability, as Sypher notes. There seems to be a large version that deals more damage and a smaller version which deals less damage. It’s unclear whether these abilities will have the same cooldown or if they will have different effects based on the size of the fireball. Either way, the fire blast seems to really pack a punch.
It’s worth nothing that none of this information has been confirmed by Epic Games, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. It’s also unknown when players would even see the new hero in game.
