Overwatch names its first gay character in new webcomic

Overwatch’s latest official comic, ‘Reflections,’ celebrates all things festive, as well as revealing the colourful shooter’s first LGBT character.

The short yet gorgeous comic features all your favourite members of Overwatch yet focuses predominantly on Tracer as she zips about Kings Row.

She’s searching for a present which happens to be for her girlfriend, Emily, who embrace together with a kiss after exchanging presents back at home.


This confirms Tracer as the LGBT character Blizzard has been teasing, which will apparently be the “first of many” in the multi-cultural team.

After sharing a kiss, Tracer and Emily head to Winston’s lab to celebrate the holidays together. It’s adorable, and you can read the whole thing here.
