Beast Boy from DC’s Teen Titans is coming to Fortnite later this week. He’ll be able to join his comic teammate Raven, and there will even be a chance to earn some specific Beast Boy and Raven rewards when the animal shapeshifter lands on the island.Beast Boy will be available on Thursday, May 13 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET on the Fortnite item shop. He’ll come with the requisite back bling (a controller strapped to a pizza box), and custom pickaxe. Furthermore, Beast Boy will come with both his superhero outfit and a casual outfit, plus his Go Ape Emote will let him transform into a green gorilla.

For anyone who can’t wait until Thursday, Fortnite players will have the opportunity to unlock Beast Boy early in the Teen Titans Cup, a duo tournament beginning on May 12.

Teams that score at least eight points can also earn a new Beast Boy and Raven Loading Screen from artist Gabriel Piccolo that highlights the couple’s romance. Anyone who just participates in the tournament will earn a Beast Boy and Raven spray.

It’s great to see Fortnite play up the recent canonization of the Beast Boy and Raven romance, a longtime favorite pairing in the fan community finally made official by DC.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is currently underway and some of pop culture’s biggest characters are joining up on the island including Kratos, Master Chief, and more. There are also a few members of the Teen Titans still unaccounted for, so perhaps there’s a chance we’ll see the whole team together in Fortnite?
