Talon has had a presence in Overwatch since the debut of the game. During the height of the Overwatch organization’s popularity, many attempts were made to eliminate Talon as a threat. These efforts resulted in the death of Overwatch agent Gérard Lacroix, courtesy of his wife Amélie. Brainwashed by Talon, she returned to the organization as their most effective assassin, and took the name Widowmaker. Since then, Talon has continued to rear its ugly head in caper after caper — even after Overwatch’s disbandment.
But although we have plenty of information about what Talon has done, little was known about the story behind the terrorist group until now. Turns out, Talon isn’t run by one individual, it’s a council — and one of the biggest names on that list just broke his way out of jail.
Doomfist has returned — not the Savior, not the Scourge, but the Successor, and possibly one of the most dangerous enemies Overwatch has ever faced.
