Hanzo

Brazilian Overwatch player creates the National Church of Hanzo Yes, you read that right. There is now a church in Brazil dedicated to Overwatch’s popular yet controversial hero.

Breakfast Topic: Hanzo and Genji are boring, I love Hanzo and Genji When the cast Overwatch was first announced, Hanzo and Genji were among the characters I just did not care about. Out of the entire cast, Hanzo, Genji, McCree, Reaper, and Soldier: 76 all seemed like boring filler characters. They didn’t have an aesthetic which caught my interest at all and I generally wanted them to...

Instead, the team evolved into an international peacekeeping force, entering a golden age of heroism and thriving in the public eye. Much of this post-Omnic Crisis period...

Your advanced weapons are no match for my pointy stick.
See master bowman Hanzo strut his stuff in Overwatch It’s like an ironclad rule of cinema that you should be afraid of the person bringing an anachronistic weapon to a fight.  Overwatch makes a point out of that with Hanzo, the master bowman, who is bringing a bow to a gunfight.  Your first instinct might be that Hanzo is going to be shot all...
