The Butter Robot from Season 1 of the show is shown here floating in an alien-like beam. Needless to say, this had gotten fans pretty excited. Then Fortnite dropped another teaser which featured a pair of glasses floating in the same manner as the previous video. Although this was not enough proof to confirm the arrival of Superman in the game, the caption gave it away.

When placed onto the face this strange plastic device seemed to make us appear as unrecognizable.
More testing required.

The very fact that Superman can hide his identity while wearing the glasses gave enough of a hint to the fans that Superman was indeed coming to Fortnite.
Final Release of the Skins
Today, Fortnite released a trailer of the Chapter 2 Season 7 Battle Pass which featured gameplay of Rick Sanchez’s skin and much more. All the new skins being added in the game are customizable by the player. Although, there is still no news about how the Superman skin will be implemented in the game even though he was featured in the trailer video.
Unlike the previous seasons, the skins will now be divided across various Battle Pass pages which can be unlocked by either claiming a specific number of rewards or by reaching a certain level on the Battle Pass. Once you’ve unlocked a page, you can earn the skin or skin variant by using a number of Battle Stars, which are earned by levelling up the Battle Pass.
