Is Junker Queen Related to Junkrat? The Truth Behind Overwatch 2’s New Hero

Overwatch 2 is set to introduce a new hero to the roster: Junker Queen, the ruler of Junkertown and a fierce warrior who wields a massive axe and a rifle. But who is she, and what is her connection to Junkrat, the explosive-loving junker who also hails from the Australian Outback? Here’s everything you need to know about the history and relationship between Junker Queen and Junkrat.

The Rise of Junker Queen

Junker Queen, whose real name is Odessa “Dez” Stone, was born in Junkertown, a sprawling scrapyard that was created after a nuclear explosion destroyed the Australian Omnium, a factory that produced intelligent robots known as omnics. The explosion turned the Outback into a wasteland, where only the toughest and most resourceful survivors could live. These survivors became known as junkers, and they scavenged the ruins for scrap metal and technology.

Junker Queen was one of these survivors, but she had a rough childhood. She was banished from Junkertown along with her family by the Junker King, Mason Howl, who ruled the town with an iron fist. Odessa’s family gradually died in the wasteland, leaving her alone and bitter. She vowed to return to Junkertown and take revenge on the King.

She did so by becoming a gladiator in the Scrapyard, a brutal arena where junkers fought for fame and fortune. She rose through the ranks with her strength and skill, until she finally faced the King himself in a one-on-one duel. She defeated him and claimed his crown, becoming the new Junker Queen.

As the Queen, she ruled Junkertown with more compassion and charisma than the King. She encouraged her people to work together and build a strong community out of the scraps. She also had a vision for the future: to expand Junkertown beyond the Outback and make it a force to be reckoned with in the world.

The Encounter with Junkrat

Junkrat, whose real name is Jamison Fawkes, was another junker who lived in Junkertown. He was an eccentric and unstable explosives expert who had a knack for finding trouble. He also had a secret: he had discovered a valuable treasure in the depths of the Omnium, something that could change the world.

He tried to keep his discovery a secret, but word got out and soon he was hunted by bounty hunters and rival factions who wanted his treasure. He needed protection, so he hired another junker named Roadhog, whose real name is Mako Rutledge, as his bodyguard.

Junkrat also went to the Junker Queen to tell her about his treasure, hoping to get her support. However, the Queen didn’t trust him and suspected he was lying or hiding something. She ordered her bodyguards to interrogate him and find out more information.

However, before they could do so, Junkrat and Roadhog escaped from Junkertown with their treasure. They went on a crime spree across the world, blowing things up and causing chaos wherever they went. They also made enemies with many powerful organizations, such as Talon, Vishkar Corporation, and Helix Security International.

The Queen was furious with their escape and their actions. She declared them enemies of Junkertown and put a bounty on their heads. She also vowed to find them and their treasure, no matter what.

The Relationship Between Junker Queen and Junkrat

So, are Junker Queen and Junkrat related? The short answer is no. They are not blood relatives or even friends. They are rivals and enemies who have different goals and values.

Junker Queen is a leader who wants to make Junkertown a better place for her people. She is ambitious and visionary, but also ruthless and cunning. She doesn’t tolerate anyone who defies her or threatens her plans.

Junkrat is an anarchist who wants to have fun and cause mayhem. He is reckless and unpredictable, but also clever and resourceful. He doesn’t care about anyone or anything except himself and his treasure.

The only thing they have in common is that they are both junkers who live in the Outback. But that’s not enough to make them allies or friends. In fact, it makes them more likely to clash over their interests and ideals.

Therefore, it’s safe to say that Junker Queen and Junkrat are not related in any way. They are foes who will likely cross paths again in Overwatch 2 , where they will have to face each other in battle.
