Blizzard has used comic books to delve into Overwatch‘s intriguing lore, and the latest entry gives insight into one of the stranger relationships in the universe.
Back in December, the Overwatch comics range added some much-needed insight into one of its most prominent and popular characters.

We now know that Tracer is the first queer Overwatch character, having been ousted in the latest webcomic, Reflections. In it, we see Tracer kissing another women — Emily.
