Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the latest entry in the cyberpunk stealth-action game franchise, launches on August 23, and Fandom has partnered with publisher Square Enix to launch a Wikia-wide community activity themed around mechanical augmentation.
Augmented people — or “Augs,” in the game’s parlance — play a crucial role in the Deus Ex fiction. Protagonist Adam Jensen is himself an Aug, outfitted with state-of-the-art body enhancements that allow him to punch through walls, render himself invisible, and perform other useful tricks.
So we recently asked eight of the top communities on Wikia how they would mechanically augment someone from their favorite pop culture franchise. The responses were incredibly creative, and we’ve incorporated the best of them into a series of custom illustrations showing of the “augmented” version of each pop culture hero. (Check out those illustrations below.)
Now it’s time to vote: We’re pitting these aug heroes against each other in a bracket tournament, and round 1 kicks off right now!
Which augmented heroes are your favorites? Vote now!
