Overwatch fans are some of the most creative out there, and now one fan has created a new skin concept for Sigma that turns him into Magneto from the X Men.
Sigma has definitely had an impact on Overwatch, for better or for worse, since he arrived to the game in July, 2019.
But, he still hasn’t gotten any new skins or cosmetics, not having any events in that time period (besides Bastion’s Brick Challenge) doesn’t help either, but Overwatch fans have taken it upon themselves to come up with skins for the newest hero.
Sigma gets magnetic
Cartoonist and character designer Jorge Diaz took it upon themselves to design Sigma an awesome original skin that turns the Overwatch hero into Magneto himself.
Magneto is one of the main antagonists in the X Men universe who, as his name suggests, controls magnetism. Sigma doesn’t have the exact same powers, but his mastery of gravity allows him to throw giant rocks (and other heroes) around.

Magneto Sigma has red and purple armor instead of his usual white and green, along with the villain’s trademark helmet.
What’s most impressive about the concept is that Diaz really didn’t have to change too much about Sigma himself to make it work.
The relative ease with which Sigma becomes Magneto would make this a great Halloween skin for the hero.
Overwatch just released their first-ever non Blizzard crossover skin for Bastion as the grand prize in the Brick Challenge (which runs until September 30).
But just because the game has partnered with LEGO, doesn’t mean that a Marvel crossover for Sigma will be coming anytime soon.
Overwatch’s Halloween event usually starts sometime towards the beginning of October, so we should start seeing new spooky skins revealed soon.
Whether or not Sigma will be included in this year’s crop of Halloween skins remains unknown, but it would be a shame if he didn’t get anything at all for the event.
