The cat is completely out of the bag and EPIC officially started to announce information about Season 4, including previously disclosed images. The Cartoon Herald also appeared in the game and is on the Battle Pass screen, sitting on a barrel near the right side.
Season 4 seems to be related to the Marvel Cartoon Universe, not in cinema, so things will be a bit different from what you expected. If you read the comic tapes, you will be aware of what’s going on, but if you do not do it, you can read more for heavy spoilers if you wish.
If we stick to the comic book for the moment, it seems that Galactus has discovered the Fortnite Universe and intends to eat it. Thor, worried not to have time to put everyone safe, flies to give us all a warning. Galactus arrives and it feels very nibble.
Heavy Spoilers Ahead – Who is the Herald?
Traditionally, the Herald in Marvel comics has been someone who has opened the way to Galactus, finding planets to eat. Yes, Galactus likes to eat whole planets, attracting energy into itself and retaining its powers and its divine strength. Probably the most famous and the best known of all the heralds, as there were some, is the Silver Surfer.
In the Thor series, written by Donny Cates and Nic Klein, Thor ends up becoming the herald of Galactus. This gives Thor an upgrade and the Odinson becomes even more powerful than it was as God of thunder. The reason it did this is that a new threat appeared in the universe that was even bigger than Galactus, The Black Winter. Thor also hopes to evacuate everyone from the planets that Galactus once eaten using the bifrost, saving billions of lives.
extreme spoilers to come
Without getting into too much detail, in Thor # 6 recently published, Thor finishes killing Galactus by discovering that the powerful being is actually a servant of the Black Winter. Thor had actually played a long scam, slowly flying the galactus power and then using it to destroy the world eater.
