After its initial launch, Blizzard has gone into overdrive to address the support meta in Overwatch with its add-on cast members. While we started with the offense-minded Sombra, we eventually got Ana, Moira, and Brigitte (on top of Doomfist and Orisa), the three of which are supports.

With Brigitte being so freshly introduced (and not playable in competitive for a bit), it's tough to divine where the meta is going to swing, but that doesn't mean you can't build your own personal wishlist of what you'd want out of the game.
