Fortnite Adds First Transgender Character: Dreamer


Dreamer is making her way into the world of video games.

It’s a great day to be a gamer! Fortnite released its latest game update, which includes new emotes, items, and our personal favorite, new characters. One the new game additions is Dreamer, a trans superhero character from the DC television series, Supergirl.

Dreamer is a groundbreaking character in the superhero universe. Not only is she Supergirl‘s first trans super, she’s also the first trans superhero to appear on TV and the first trans character to be added to the battle royale game.

The details about the Fortnite update were leaked on Twitter by users HYPEX and Shiina BR. They also broke the news about other characters coming to the game, including Ikora Rey, Exo Stranger, and Commander Zavala of Destiny.

According to The Gamer, Dreamer is part of a larger set and will be available through the Fortnite item shop. However, when she will be available for purchase has yet to be announced.

Earlier this year, Fortnite announced the return of Rainbow Royale, an in-game Pride event. With its return scheduled for September, the Dreamer character’s release will likely synch up with the Pride event.

Dreamer (AKA Nia Nal) first joined the superhero scene during season four of the Arrowverse series, Supergirl. A half-alien, Dreamer’s powers include seeing the future and astral projection. Though the series was canceled after six seasons, you can still find Dreamer in comics and on Fortnite.
