While this confirms the sexual orientation of some of Overwatch’s characters it has run into trouble in countries which do not support same sex romance. Russia has banned the comic strip in their country amid reports of it violating the country’s laws.

The comic has been banned based on the country’s accord to enforce its mandate on gay propaganda law to minors (under the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Vales act.)

According to PVPLive, the decision not to publish the comic in Russia was taken at behest of Blizzard.
