Please, Blizzard—we want all of them.

It's not too farfetched to imagine Overwatch's D.Va piloting a mech in StarCraft, or Torbjörn forging hammers in World of Warcraft.

Artist Conrad Atega took his imagination one step further, and drew up a bunch of potential skins that put Overwatch heroes into different Blizzard games. And Overwatch heroes really fit these roles well, despite each game having its own distinct styling.

Atega's Overwatch and StarCraft mashup skins put Soldier: 76 into a marine space suit, naturally, with Zenyatta as a Protoss High Templar, Widowmaker as a sniping Ghost, and D.Va in a Thor and Viking–inspired mech.

The next round puts five heroes into Diablo. Roadhog fits naturally as The Butcher, with Reaper taking on Malthael's look, Mercy as Auriel, Tracer as a Demon Hunter, and Zarya as a Barbarian.

For World of Warcraft, Junkrat gets a Goblin skin, with Mei as a Pandaren fighter, Torbjörn as a Dwarf, and Pharah and Reinhardt as fiery-looking demons. Oh, and for the Genji who rushes into the fight before the team is ready, it's Leeroy Jenji—based on the classic WoW Leeroy Jenkins meme.

We'd be happy to open loot box after loot box in search of these World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo–inspired skins for Overwatch heroes. So could skins like these ever happen? That's up to Blizzard. The developer isn't hesitant to put its characters into the same worlds—ahem, Heroes of the Storm—so it's not out of the question that we'd get some sort of mashup in the future.
