Best practices for designing and managing your subscription strategy

Marvel supervillain Thanos has entered the battle royale in Fortnite, and you can play as him if you can capture the Infinity Gauntlet. Once you have control of him, you have a powerful arsenal of attacks at your disposal. But more importantly, you can Thanos dab.

Fortnite players have only had a few hours with Thanos, but they already coming up with some creative ways to express themselves with him. This is true even for people who haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War, which debuted April 27. That was Thanos’s biggest role in a Marvel film so far, but some players are getting the gist of the film just by hopping into some rounds of Fortnite and bringing along a bag of popcorn.

If you want a more cinematic re-creation of Infinity War in Fortnite, check out this fan-made short — it is about as accurate to what really happened in the film as the actual (deliberately misleading) trailers.

I’ve played a few rounds of Fortnite’s Infinity Gauntlet mode myself, and I’ve devised a deep survival strategy. The tweet below does a good job of summing up how I handle Thanos when I see him.

But who am I kidding? The only thing that matters about this Fortnite/Avengers crossover is that we get to see Thanos dance. Watch the mad Titan use the power of the Infinity Gauntlet to shake half of the booties in the universe.

Woo — hope the fate of the universe doesn’t come down to another danceoff with Starlord because I think Thanos might have this one.

The Fortnite Infinity Gauntlet mashup lasts for a limited time, so get into the game now i fyou think you can handle this funky alien.

Watch Thanos Dab in Fortnite and Perform Other Emotes

Avengers: Infinity War’s Thanos is a big burly dude, and he’s also pretty terrifying, especially if you have to go up against him in a match. That’s why it’s so funny to see him using the various emotes in Fortnite or, as the young kids say, “dabbin’ on the haters.” Fortnite players are thrilled to see Thanos dabbing, dancing, and otherwise looking like a total fool using the long list of emotes implemented in Fortnite.

As you can see below, Thanos is dabbin’ on it like a pro, which somehow makes his whole killing half the universe thing or whatever seem like no big deal. Supervillains — they’re just like us!

The best footage, however, comes from YouTuber drawohkan, showcasing most of Thanos’s sweet moves, including the Orange Justice, Take the L, and more. If we’re being honest, he looks absolutely ridiculous, but maybe that’s the point. Did you ever expect the Mad Titan to do the Floss emote? Probably not, but now that you’ve seen it you love it, right?

It looks like this is a trend that isn’t going away anytime soon, especially since players are scrambling to get their own footage of Thanos busting a move before the limited-time event is over. If you want to get in on the action, make sure you hop online before the event comes to an end, grab the Infinity Gauntlet, and work it out. Imagine if Thanos had done the Orange Justice emote while in Avengers: Infinity War. Do you think people would still be upset with him? Our money is on “probably not.”

Thanos is in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and he's a force to be reckoned with, but he's also just a really hip, cool guy. Watch him dab and emote!
