Venture's Adventures: Tangle With Talon recap

Tangle With Talon begins with Venture digging at an archeological site in Illios. They find an artifact shaped like a dog before realizing that it’s now nightfall.

Thankfully, their teammates left some dinner for them in an ice box. The dinner? Ice cream, of course! This is a reference to Venture's Ice Cream skin and emote in the Overwatch 2 game itself.

As Venture reflects on their work in archeology, they hear some noise. Talon troops are digging around the area. Then, Mauga makes his appearance. Venture observes that this is Talon's third time entering a site in a year.

Overwatch 2 Venture comic features Mauga and Talon

Mauga tells his troops about Doomfist's plans to loot the site clean. This upsets Venture, as the site is not just about loot. Rather, it's about the legacy of those long gone. Venture wants to protect this and does not hesitate in doing so. They pop out from the ground — much like how their Burrow attack works in Overwatch 2.

Then, Venture faces Mauga and snatches a relic from his hand. Venture explains the significance of the item while Mauga laughs and threatens to duke it out against them. However, a Talon member warns Mauga of the police.

"Doomfist'll just have to look for his artifact somewhere else," Mauga says while leaving the area. "It's been fun, kid."

Suddenly, Sombra appears beside Venture. Before Venture can accuse Sombra of also looting the site, the latter reveals that Venture could be just what she needs. "I'll be in touch," Sombra says.

Venture's Adventures: Tangle With Talon ends with Venture wondering what Talon could be after.
