Blizzard just revealed its latest hero for Overwatch during the ongoing BlizzCon 2017. Take a look at the newest support hero named Moira O’Deorain in this origin video below:

 

From the looks of it, Moira holds a key piece in the Overwatch lore. One that finally explains Reapers phase out ability.

 

“Overwatch held back the pace of scientific discovery for decades,” she says in the cinematic. “They believed my methods were too radical, too controversial.”

Of course, voice lines indicate that Reaper does blame Mercy for his current state. Theories state that Moira might’ve given him his abilities like Shadow Step but when Mercy brought Reyes back, it might have caused the process to go awry which turned him into Reaper.

Ok, so that nails it. Now I’m hyped.

    It doesn’t answer shit. You have a picture of Moira STUDYING the effect. Does not mean she did anything. Until Blizzard release canon on this. Mercy is to blame.

      true. Those might be only test on how in the hell Gabriel became like this after Mercy ressurected him

    • R.Caruana

      This is canon. on the voice lines Mercy asks Reaper what happened to him., he fires back that she should have the expertise.
