At least five more mythic abilities are set to arrive in Fortnite throughout Season 4. Here’s everything we know about these new special powers.
Replacing controversial mythic items such as Kit’s Shockwave Launcher and Charge Shotgun, Fortnite’s Season 4 Marvel collab instead features a range of hero abilities.
Initially, these consist of Doctor Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Arcane Gauntlets, as well as Groot’s Bramble Shield and Silver Surfer’s Board.
In the Season 4 gameplay trailer, Epic made it clear that more abilities are on the way. The footage even showed off some of the future powers, including Iron Man’s Repulsors and Wolverine’s deadly Claws.

note, the max range may be a bit off, I'm assuming that 100 in distance = 1 floor tile. pic.twitter.com/GLwj3iD3Mq

We will have to wait until the abilities are released to see how they affect gameplay, but based on these stats they hopefully shouldn’t be too overpowered. Most moves don’t deal a whole lot of damage to players, it’s more the destruction they cause to the environment that is concerning.
The abilities will likely be added gradually as Fortnite Season 4 progresses. As the map evolves and new POI’s are discovered, mythic powers will become increasingly common in players’ loadouts.
