5 Blizzard heroes begging to enter the Nexus

Kyle "Blackthorne" Vlaros - Blackthorne

Speaking of the SNES, Blizzard's first game under the name of Blizzard Entertainment was a strange game known as Blackthorne.

Kyle Vlaros isn't your average gun-totting, 'roid junkie mercenary. He's a gun-totting, 'roid junkie mercenary from the planet Tull who is out for orc blood on his journey to reclaim his rightful throne from the evil king Sarlac. That's right...even before Starcraft and Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment was mixing guns and medieval warriors as if they belonged together.

Kyle "Blackthorne" Vlaros was meant to be in Heroes of the Storm. His shotgun works perfectly as an auto-attack, while hover bombs could be used to stun and damage enemies. Other items like the levitator could help close the distance between him and enemy heroes, or the wasp-bomb could be used to attack from across the map. These skills would make him viable as either an Assassin or Specialist role.
