Overwatch 2 Skin Concepts Show How Cool a DC Crossover Would Be


  • An Overwatch 2 fan comes up with some DC Comics-inspired skins for heroes like Hanzo, Mercy, Genji, and others, all of which boast some impressive attention to detail.
  • Some of the iconic DC characters featured include Wonder Woman, Batman, and Supergirl, with the crossover feeling natural since Overwatch 2’s characters are superheroes in their own right.
  • While it remains to be seen if a collaboration like this will ever happen, buzzlymuzz’s skin concepts deserve praise for perfectly blending DC Comics heroes with Overwatch 2 heroes.

A talented Overwatch 2 fan has created skins inspired by DC Comics characters for Hanzo, Mercy, and nine other heroes from the game. Since the original Overwatch, Blizzard has released many creative skins for the hero shooter’s characters. This potential for skins expanded even further with the release of Overwatch 2, which opened the door to crossovers with famous names from pop culture for the first time.

Overwatch 2‘s first crossover was with the hit anime One-Punch Man, creating versions of Saitama and his disciple Genos for Doomfist and Genji, with Kiriko as Terrible Tornado and Soldier: 76 as Mumen Rider. Overwatch 2 collaborated this year with the anime Cowboy Bepop, turning Cassidy into Spike Spiegel, Ashe into Faye Valentine, Mauga into Jet Black, Sombra into Ed, and Wrecking Ball into Ein. In a very familiar collab, Overwatch 2 got some Diablo skins, giving Lilith, Inarius, Azmodan, and Imperius visuals to Moira, Pharah, Wrecking Ball, and Reinhardt. Since then, the Overwatch 2 community has been reimagining the hero roster with inventive crossover skins, such as the DC ones recently shared by a talented fan.
