Let’s start off with a relatively new video game character reveal. During a panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Overwatch’s latest addition (and everyone’s favorite support sniper) was inspired by the kickass old ladies from the latest Mad Max movie, Fury Road.

In the movie they’re referred to as the Many Mothers, or the Vuvulani. They’re basically a biker gang that provides expert sniper fire. You can definitely see where Ana gets her looks, and her awesome sniping skills!

Also, if you check her voice lines, she’s even got ‘Witness Me’ in there. Junkrat and Roadhog considered, it seems like Blizzard have made it clear they love the Mad Max series.
