With the release of the latest Overwatch comic, titled "Reflections," Blizzard revealed a lot of personal details about many of its heroes. We found out that Tracer has a girlfriend named Emily, Reaper longs for the love a family, Widowmaker misses her deceased husband, and Pharah is apparently in a romantic relationship with an older gentleman.
Reflections rocked some boats and sank some shippers. There are still a few loose ends, though. Who exactly is Pharah eating dinner with? Who did all of Reinhardt's grandchildren come from? And what the heck is going on between Mercy and Genji? I'm going to link the gallery showing various shots of the comic below, and be sure to check out the two shots of Mercy and Genji. In one frame you can see Genji writing a letter to someone using a quill pen. In another frame we see Mercy reading a letter with a smile on her face, and a quill pen in her hand. Are these two romantically involved?
It seems that they are! We have a slew of new voice lines from the PTR as captured by Reddit user "akhanubis," and they all but confirm the romantic ties between Genji and Mercy. Take a listen:
I know, it's not the hottest or steamiest leak, but it does seem to indicate that the two are sweet on each other. That makes the Overwatch meta lore all that more interesting. It also means that we're in for a ton of new fan art featuring these two lovebirds, so just get ready next time you load up Tumblr.
