Fortnite Batman Zero Point: Everything revealed about #Issue 5

Fortnite Creative Director reveals more details
Fortnite's creative director Donald Mustard took to Twitter to hint at some of the major plot changes in the penultimate issue of the Batman x Fortnite comic book series. He mentions that Batman will get to know more about how the island works in this issue.
According to Mustard, Batman will finally figure out the loop's purpose, and the Imagined Order's intentions. He also highlighted how the cover image for the comic book was inspired by Michelangelo's Pieta.
Mustard also answered a fan theory that asked about one of the most important characters in Fortnite who is currently in the shadows. To everyone's surprise, the creative director drew a picture of Singularity. She was a part of the Battle Pass in Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 9.
It will be interesting to see how the plot unfolds to reveal more about Singularity's importance in the current storyline.
Leaks and rumours
Besides all the official announcements and hints, several leaks and speculations are running rampant in the Fortnite community. Data miner ShiinaBR posted some theories on Twitter that look plausible to anyone reading all the Fortnite Batman Zero Point comic books.
The data miner mentioned that the traitor in Batman's team is none other than Deathstroke. Apparently, the anti-hero has a device portal similar to the one Agent Jonesy had in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.
This device allows Deathstroke to phase through the island and go back to Gotham City without Batman and Catwoman.
The theory also states that some of the members of the team will be returning to their respective realities. Some of the items from Chapter 1 Season 8 will also feature in the comic books.
Ever since the Spire was destroyed, the Imagined Order lost all control of the Zero Point. This is apparently going to be a major part of the storyline in the final two issues of Fortnite Batman Zero Point.
The fifth issue releases tomorrow, and we will definitely add a summary of all the events in the comic book, once they are revealed.
