Ready up, Overwatch fans! We’re excited to announce that Charlet Chung, Lucie Pohl, and Gaku Space, who play heroes D.Va, Mercy, and Genji in Blizzard’s epic team-based shooter, will be joining us at MCM Scotland Comic Con next month.
Californian-born Charlet’s character D.Va is a former pro gamer who now uses her skills to pilot a state-of-the-art mech in defence of her South Korean homeland. Known by her gaming handle ‘D.Va’, 19-year-old Hana Song brings the lightning reflexes and competitive edge that made her an eSports champion to the battlefield, obliterating enemies with the twin Fusion Cannon firepower of her nimble MEKA suit while tanking damage like a boss.
Actor and stand-up comedian Lucie Pohl (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Red Dwarf) voices Overwatch’s resident guardian angel Mercy. A peerless healer, Swiss scientist Mercy – real name Angela Ziegler – is a staunch advocate for peace. However, when the going gets tough and innocents are imperilled, the angelic doctor can be counted on to don her Valkyrie swift-response suit and jump into the action.
Tokyo-born Gaku Space (Westworld, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist) stalks Blizzard’s battlefields as shuriken-shooting cyborg Genji Shimada. The younger sibling of Overwatch hero Hanzo, Genji grew up the spoiled son of the Shimada ninja clan and was almost killed by his brother when he refused to abandon his playboy ways. Transformed into a cyborg by the Overwatch organisation, Genji is now a living weapon possessing superlative mobility and combat skills.
