Batman wakes up time and time again in 22-minute loops, progressively trying to unlock the secret of his situation. He starts writing notes on himself, like "This has happened before," a touch inspired by Christopher Nolan's "Memento." The Dark Knight realizes that some objects retain their permanency. He may not remember who he is or what even happened 22 minutes ago, but like other "Fortnite" participants who retain their skills, he's still the world's greatest detective and he's going to figure it out. He doesn't know who Bruce Wayne is, but he's still got Bruce Wayne's smarts and muscle memory.

Because "Fortnite" characters don't actually talk on Fortnite Island, Batman is a silent protagonist for the first few issues, and the story is portrayed through thought-bubble-like captions. Other characters also largely remain silent, which presented an interesting challenge for Gage and artist Reilly Brown.


Gee, the synopsis makes the happy fight-your-friends-to-the-death island sound kind of ... horrific.

You kids with your mad up words.

The entire concept sounds like something that Ernest Cline and Doug Walker would masturbate to.

I prefer APEX since the extra movement powers make for spectacular cluster-farks.

Also, I think the contestants consented.

A superhero battle royale sounds pretty good.  Like:
