The last season of Fortnite was Marvel-themed, which had a large statue of Black Panther on the map and players could activate the Black Panther superpower. Although there was no skin available in the previous season. It is possible that this was due to the passing of actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the superhero in the 2018 film.
