Fortnite Superman Skin Release Date

Superman is currently slated to release on Thursday, 12 August 2021. There is no confirmed reason why he isn’t available at the start of the season.

There are, however, some rumours as to the role he may play in the season overall.

As you can see, Superman has a timer counting down the time until he's available.

Is Superman In Fortnite Melee Only?

Some fans have noted that in the story trailers for Season 7, Superman doesn’t wield any weapons. Could this mean that the character relies on abilities? If so how well balanced will they be to ensure he isn’t an easy win character?

Only time will tell, but it would be strange for Superman to wield a gun give his supernatural abilities.

What Superman Content Is In The Battle Pass?

Some of the content available in the Battle Pass with Superman includes skins, gliders and even a harvesting tool.

The highlights for us are the Clark Kent skin with a built-in emote to become Superman and the Shadow variant which is a black and silver costume with ominous white glowing eyes.


The set overall is incredibly cool and sure to be well worth the wait.

Superman In Fortnite Rumours

That has been some chatter that the delay of Superman's arrival in Season 7 is story related. Some have pointed to the current alien threat and what effect they are going to have on the game world going forward.

This has players believing that the aliens may become hostile and Superman will swoop in to save the day when needed most. After this event, Superman then becomes playable.
