Become a Hero
There's a new feature coming to the Fortnite item shop called "Become a Hero".
Epic Games have not shared any details about this feature, except for one line, which sounds like it is a character builder.
"New to the item shop, customize your own hero!"

Apparently, there's also going to be a new Fortnite Iron-Man vault for players to explore. Get familiar with the new Fortnite v14.10 map update in the meantime.
New Fortnite LTM and superhero abilities
There will be new superhero abilities coming to Fortnite with the v14.10 update.
So far, we only know about two new, thanks to the content creator's patch notes as shared by VastBlast.
- Thor's Mjolnir Strike
- Iron-Man's Repulsor Gauntlets
There's also a new LTM called Mint-Condition for players to enjoy in the Fortnite v14.10 update.
This will allow players to mix and match iconic superpowers from across Marvel in a new comic book crossover LTM.
Lastly, the main villain in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, Galactus, will be sending his Gatherer Drones. Players who take these drones down "will be rewarded".
