Phoenix is a hero that was created for the pitch meeting for Prometheus, which became Overwatch. His design is taken from unused Titan concept art.[1]

He had the following abilities:

  • Flame Thrower
  • Flight
  • Explode


  • Phoenix's name and artwork was previously used in Jeff Kaplan's initial pitch for a class with a Rocket Launcher weapon and abilities called Jetpack and Napalm Call Down.
  • Phoenix is likely one of the original inspirations for Pharah.
