Doomfist Disappoints

Blizzard released their much awaited newest Overwatch character "Doomfist" this week, with disappointing results.

The second African character after Orisa, Doomfist is an enemy of Overwatch.  Foreshadowed in the comics and animated shorts, I was really expecting something big with Doomfish but got little in return.

The problem with Doomfist is that his fist is not very doom-dealing.  It's weaker than Reinhardt's hammer, doing about as much damage as Zarya's pulse cannon.

Doomfist looks and sounds and acts like a blaxploitation comic book character from the 70's, and it would be really cool if Blizzard had the courage to run with that theme but they don't.  What you end up with is a Captain Planet level villain with a weak power.
