Supers Inspiration - Overwatch

Lately I've been addicted to the video game Overwatch. It's a first person objective-based shooter from Blizzard Entertainment. Each character has their own unique abilities and personality. If you have a PS4 or Xbox One you can try the game for free September 9-12.

The real reason I'm posting about it though is because the game is great inspiration for things like Mutants and Masterminds or Villains and Vigilantes. It doesn't take that big of a stretch of the imagination to picture the world of Overwatch as the future of The Incredibles. Check out the various trailers and animated shorts below and see if you get the same feeling.


  1. Good point on the comparison to The Incredibles. It does seem like a world worth paying attention to (I guess that's to be expected from Blizzard at this point).

    1. Even if I don't care for WoW or Hearthstone anymore. Blizzard makes great games (and amazing animations to go with them).
