Overwatch Fan Film Takes a Deep Dive into Mercy’s Past | PVP Live
Overwatch is rife with wonderful fan creations that help fill in the blanks that Blizzard’s left in the lore and interactions between the characters. One such creation, a fan film called Heroes Never Die, was released today from Lupin Productions. It’s important to note that films like these aren’t canon, but are really cool expressions of creativity from the Overwatch community.
The film attempts to fill in the blanks of Mercy’s backstory. We know from Blizzard that she obtained her MD and Ph.D. in Switzerland. She then helped pioneer a breakthrough in the field of applied nanobiology that improved the treatment of life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Heroes Never Die posits that the inspiration for these breakthroughs came from her father.
