Who Is Junker Queen in Overwatch?
Junker Queen is the newest character in Overwatch and her release has led to a lot of questions from fans. Unlike a lot of the characters who were affiliated with the Overwatch or Talon groups, Junker Queen has no such affiliation. Her real name is Odessa “Dez” Stone and she fought many a foe to become the queen of Junkertown. She leads the group known as the Junkers. The only characters she has ties to are Junkrat, Roadhog, and Hammond (Wrecking Ball).
Who is Junker Queen?
The Junker Queen is the leader of the Junkers and she hails from Junkertown. She has been the ruler of the town for a decade and she has a group of enforcers who heed every command. Wrecking Ball is one of the members of Junkertown as the genius hamster managed to build himself a mech fighting machine that he uses in the arena.
Junkrat brought up details of a treasure that he found in the Australian omnium and the Junker Queen took interest in it immediately and wanted to keep it for herself. Roadhog protected Junkrat and the duo has been on the run from the Junker Queen ever since. Junkrat and Roadhog have become thorns in the Junker Queen’s side with the duo blowing up her summer shack, which led to them getting banned from Junkertown. They attempted to sneak back in and assassinate Junker Queen but they failed miserably.
