Fortnite is one of the most popular games today. Partially due to its addictive gameplay and partially due to the fact that it became a pop-culture phenomenon, and even people who have nothing to do with the game are aware of it and can understand some of the more mainstream references to it.
One of the reasons that Fortnite is so compelling to wider audiences is its large skin and character collection that allows you to change the appearance of your character completely. Those skins reference other popular franchises like DC and Marvel comics, for example, other video games, movies, even anime.
