the intro. #10 Genji
He is the youngest son of Sojiro Shimada, who controls the powerful Shimada Ninja clan. Genji only ever experienced a life luxury
and privilege as a child. When he decided that he wanted nothing to
do with his families illegal business, Genji pursued a more lavish lifestyle. This choice made the rest of the clan view
him as a dangerous liability. Much of the clan rejected his fathers leadership
and believed he had been protecting Genji too much. When Sojiro died suddenly they asked Genjis
older brother to demand that Genji take more of an active role in the empire. When Genji refused, tensions within the clan
and their family began to escalate to a dangerous place. To the point where his own brother attempted
to assassinate him. The violent confrontation left Genji on the
verge of death. The Overwatch team soon intervened and rescued
Genji. However the only way to save him was to put
him through an intense process of cyberization. He then became the half-omnic, half-human
soldier we know him as today. #9 Hanzo
Hanzo is Genjis older brother and while it may seem in our last point that hes a villain
in this story, that does not negate the fact that Hanzo has not had the easiest life either. After losing his father and being forced to
lead the Shimada clan its only after the influence of its members that he decides its best to
eliminate his brother. After his brother had disobeyed the clan it
was his duty as the leader to kill him to maintain order. The act of having to kill his own brother
broke Hanzos heart and believing that Genji was now dead he soon rejected his fathers
legacy as well. As Hanzo abandoned his fathers clan he became
an enemy to their assassins and a target just like his brother #8 Roadhog
His real name is Mako Rutledge and after the Omnic Crisis the government gifted the Australian
omnium to the omnics with the hope of establishing peace. Due to this arrangement though many Outback
residents were displaced from their homes. As resentment and tensions rose a group of
survivalists, solar farmers and people who wanted to be left alone formed a violent rebellion. They were called the Australian Liberation
Front and together they successfully attacked the omnium along with the robot population. Attempting to take back the land that had
been stolen from them Mako and the A.L.F. sabotaged the omniums fusion core leading
to a massive explosion that wiped out the facility. This did not come without grave consequences
though, soon the entire outback was exposed to intense radiation. Mako could only watch as his homeland turned
into an apocalyptic wasteland. Which is also what prompted him to don the
mask and transform into the ruthless killer known as Roadhog #7 Zenyatta
This is one of the few Omnics who were able to reprogram themselves and transcend to the
place of being Omnic Monks. They now wander the world searching for spiritual
enlightenment as well as being the peacemakers between humans and omnics. Zenyatta was once a member of the Shambali
but when he rejected the groups approach to deal with the human omnic problem he embarked
on his own path to help others find their inner peace. After leaving the monastery he had an encounter
with Genji who was struggling with his identity. Through his wisdom and mentorship Genji was
able to find peace within his existence as a half-human, half-omnic. If you take into consideration the path to
this point for Zenyatta though its a story of struggle and defiance from his own programming. Add in the fact that humans not only fear,
but resent Omnics for declaring war on the humans and you have one scary origin story
for this Overwatch hero. #6 Symmetra
Her real name is Satya Vaswani and by her own recollection growing up in Hyderabad,
India was not the most pleasant. After the Omnic Crisis much of Indias population
was displaced. Enter the Vishkar Corporation. This company began the process of creating
new self-sustaining cities to house all of these people who had been displaced by the
war. In one city they utilized radical hard-light
technology to shape the city streets in the blink of an eye. When Vaswani was still very young she was
taken from her home and placed in the care of Vishkars Architect Academy. This meant she would never return home ever
again and the only way to rid herself of the immense loneliness she felt was to dive head
first into her education and training. This corporation took the innocence of a little
girl with great light bending abilities and manipulated her into becoming their strongest
soldier. Under the moniker of Symmetra she was sent
on many missions around the world to uphold their corporate interests and expand its influence. #5 Widowmaker
Her real name is Amelie Guillard and as her Overwatch name suggests this lady has a scary
background story. For much of her life she was a famous ballet
dancer in Paris and when she married Overwatch agent Gerard Lacroix her life would change
forever. Because her husband was an Overwatch agent
he was often a target of the terrorist organization known as Talon. When they couldnt kill him they took a different
approach, they went for his wife. Talon operatives kidnapped her and put Amelie
through an intense program of neural reconditioning. This utterly broke her will, dimmed her once
bright personality and transformed her into a Talon sleeper agent. Just two weeks after all of this brainwashing
she returned to her home and murdered her own husband while he was sleeping. Officially making her the Widowmaker. #4 Ana Amari
Ana is considered to be one of the universe’s greatest snipers, using a cybernetic eye to
improve her vision, adding a notch to her gun, and her conscious with every kill. Her final mission was an anti-talon operation
conducted by overwatch, led by Jack Morrison where they rescued countless scientists that
Talon had taken hostage. The mission led to a sniper duel, between
Ana and the Talon operative known as Widowmaker. As they battled, Ana was able to incapacitate
Widowmaker temporarily after hitting her helmet. But upon seeing Widowmaker’s face, she froze. She recognized Widowmaker, she knew her. However, that moment of hesitation gave Widowmaker
all the time she needed to take her own shot, shooting through her scope and right into
her cybernetic eye. It was believed the shot had killed her. However, it didn’t. Ana had survived being shot, even if she was
terribly wounded and her eye had been destroyed. She woke up in poland with temporary amnesia,
unable to remember who she was or how she had gotten hurt. She requested to remain anonymous and she
was kept out of the system, ensuring that overwatch would not find her again. She even let her daughter remain oblivious,
since if she was alive, overwatch would expect her to return home. After many years she ended up regretting this
decision, she had also stayed out of world conflicts. And when she heard about the destruction of
overwatch headquarters and the death of jack morrison, she had her doubts as to if he had
actually died. #3 Tracer
Her real name is Lena Oxton, and she was the youngest person ever inducted into Overwatch’s
experimental flight program. Since she had a reputation for her fearless
skills, she was picked to test the prototype of a teleporting fighter jet called the Slipstream. During the flight test however, the aircraft
malfunctioned and disappeared, and Lena was assumed dead. You know what they say, assuming makes a donkey
out of you and me. She reappeared months later however, and the
ordeal had changed her in a way no scientist could understand. Her body, her cells, here very DNA was desynchronized
from time. Suffering from chronal dissasociation, she
was in essence a living ghost, vanishing for hours or days at once. Even when she was here, she couldn’t maintain
a physical form for long. She had weird dreams about the past, including
being a kitchen maid in the country. This kept going until she met Winston, who
invented the Chronal accelerator. Can you imagine constantly being out of time? Seeing things but having people not see you? Sounds like highschool. But in this case you wouldn’t know if you
were witnessing the past, future, or present. Imagine how horrific that would be. What if this video really comes out in a few
weeks and you’re somehow seeing it now. #2 Reinhardt
Reinhardt is the literal definition of “I got out, but they keep pulling me back in.” Reinhardt was a german armed forces soldier. After a battle that caused Reinhardt to lose
both his left eye and his mentor, he was inducted into the original overwatch strike team that
put an end to the Omnic Crisis. He continued serving into his late fifties,
where he was forced to retire from combat operations. Disappointed about being removed from active
duty, he feared his days or glory were over, but they were far from it. Once overwatch had disbanded, Reinhardt was
not content to sit idly by while the world destroyed itself. He once more took his crusader armor and vowed
to fight for justice across europe like knights of old. In his mission he was also accompanied by
his daughter Bridgitte, who was now an adult. The two worked together and got in, and out
of numerous scraps and scrapes. While traveling with Bridgette, they found
themselves low on fuel and money. They stopped off in a town to fet some fuel,
but the city was abandoned. The area was being terrorized by the Dragons,
a group of scavengers who were claiming the territory. Reinhardt stepped in, telling them to leave,
but they laughed and beat him. Not taking this lightly, Reinhardt and Bridgitte
repaired his old armor, and located the dragons’ base. He left to confront them, but saw them as
actual dragons. He fought them as the proverbial knight he
is and succeeded, forcing them from the land. #1 Torbjörn
Torbjorn Lindholm is one of the world’s greatest weaponsmiths and engineers. His goal was to create technology that would
improve the lives of others. However his employers would want to combine
his tech, with AI. Obviously they haven’t seen transformers. But Torbjörn has, he was worried about the
Omnics he helped to create, mistrusting them and believing that they should not have human
rights. However he was unfortunately proven right,
when the Omnics turned on humanity, and started the Omnic Crisis. Torby wanted to repent for essentially causing
the Omnic crisis, since if he hadn’t invented them, there wouldn’t of been a war. If you started world war 3 by accident im
pretty sure you’d feel the same. And i’m pretty sure it would weigh on your
conscience. And everytime someone wanted to bring up something
bad they’ve done, you’d say -well at least you didn’t start world war 3- EVERYTIME! And you KNOW you would. There we have it friends the Top 10 Scary
