Find out the origins of the masked vigilante known as Soldier: 76.
[Open on the words "SOLDIER: 76 - ORIGIN STORY" next to the 76 from Soldier: 76's jacket.]
Soldier: 76: My name is Jack Morrison. People used to call me a hero.
Soldier: 76: Bad guys popped up all over the world. Lots of folks said we failed to keep the world safe.
[Fade to Jack Morrison trying to calm down anti-Overwatch protesters]
Soldier: 76: Protests broke out. They said that we were the problem, and people called for my head. They almost got their wish..
[Fade to the ruins of the destroyed Swiss Headquarters. A torn Overwatch flag gently sways in the wind.]
Soldier: 76: It was a conspiracy; Overwatch got hit from inside and out. Our enemies blew up our headquarters, and me with it.
[Cut to a grave marked "HERE LIES JACK MORRISON - COMMANDER - OVERWATCH". Soldier: 76's shadow is cast over it.]
Soldier: 76: They thought I died. Part of me did.
[Cut to black.]
Soldier: 76: But the war goes on.
[Fade to Jack Morrison putting on his Soldier: 76 mask.]
Soldier: 76: Now, I move in secret; striking from the shadows, hunting all those that brought Overwatch down.
[Fade to Soldier: 76 walking down a dimly lit street in a city.]
Soldier: 76: Call me a vigilante if you want. Truth is, I'm just a soldier.
[All fades away but the one street lamp illuminating Soldier: 76, which fades slightly slower. Fade to the Overwatch logo.]
