Manic! Autistic Superhero!

Manic! Autistic Superhero!

by Mars714
In Manic! Autistic Superhero! Characters wear there disabilities right out for the world to see, but that doesn't make them any less discriminated. Even though disabilities become physical traits in this world, (such as depression becoming a strangling scarf who speaks you depressive and aggressive thoughts) They aren't all obvious or easily brushed off. Autism appears differently for every person, and can appear slightly or very extremely. Other disabilities only appear sometimes, arthritis and diabetes are only visible when they become a problem.

Manic! Autistic Superhero!

..is a comic based off my real life! ... Okay so some parts are made up... I don't have super powers, But I do have incredible insight for a person with autism... I'm Maya A. R. Stringer and I Chose to being this comic, the drawing, writing, and storyline at a very dramatic point in my life. Thing are crazy but they may get better, however given the state of the world, It could get worse. This comic is about my life but its also about dealing with not understanding things that others do. Its about seeing things though the eyes of someone who sees things in a different way...

Honestly if a hero this cute arrested me I wouldn’t complain
@Mars714: For the record: No, I stick to Smackjeeves. All predictions are purely the results of my own logic.

@VadanDrumist: HA! have you been reading ahead? Manic is smart but likes to do things that are complex, and sometimes that leads to a lack of intelligence.
You'd think he could just use his power to disarm him. Even if he wasn't strong enough to pull it from his grip he could literally dismantle the gun as he used it.

Full chapter on Tapas!
I finished the full chapter during the night, and its scheduled to go public before this page does, so If you want to speed ahead, check out: https://tapas.io/series/Manic-Autistic-Superhero

If you want to get a full page a day, rather than two per week, Go to: https://manic-mars.tumblr.com as they will be queued there.

Just remember to be respectful, and don't shout out spoilers!
this is actually Filler
I really don't want to disturb the flow, but Chapter five isn't ready.... I suck, I know.

this game actually was some decent programing difficulty. spent months trying to get around a cumbering code, but in the end I went with a tried, true and error heavy method.

so yeah errors on the bipolar color settings, those are the errors I know of. (however bipolar is just an aura so not too big a deal... I guess)

...

why are you still reading this? play the dang game.
"How's that possible?" I do believe this one has forgotten they are in a dream.

Omg really? I didn't even realize, I mean, I just put how I would react, with a little thought. Usually I'm not nearly so careful with my words when just talking to people. So what I try to do in this comic is be me, if I could think of replies in advance. So I mean, I geuss this is proof I'm human? XD

I like the realism of human conditions you added to the comic, it makes the reader connect faster to your characters.
Hey all, in addition to the new page today, I decided to make this bonus art for our top commenter, @VadanDrumist ! I'm sorry I don't always reply to your comments, But believe me, I value all of them! Your observations can be so contrary to mine, but I love that! It gives me a way to think a bit different, although sometimes your observations are almost a prediction! So on point with mine! I completely love sharing my story with you, and everyone!

Well an important thing to remember is that not all powers require heroics. Technomancy is great in the modern world. You could be the ultimate mechanic or engineer. And who knows the potential of your other more dubious powers.

@VadanDrumist: Yes well, If I didn't have such lack of goal focus, or performance anxiety, I'd, I mean Manic- would be able to think of such intelligent questions myself, I mean their self! XD

Good Questions: Just how worried should I be about villains coming after my family? Are there established territories to prevent hero's coming into conflict while on the job? Is there a network that heroes can access to communicate, and if so how do i get access? Are there any organizations I can get in touch with that may assist me with my heroing? Are there any Hero Killers who I should be avoiding? Just how much am I allowed to work with the police? Any tips on how to optimize my patrolling?

@Mars714: Well no it's not surprising in that way (give me a few years, and I'll probably be in the same boat). It's the fact that he's able to pass as a youngster despite being 26 years old.

Also: Giving away your age? It'll be even more surprising if he manages to keep his identity hidden for longer than a month.

@VadanDrumist: HA! Yes. Manic is based off me, and I was 26 when I wrote this. I am 27 now. But there are reasons for things like, still living with your mom at 27, those may be, being mentally unstable, and unable to go to school or get a job. These things can be common in autistic subjects. In all of these ways Manic's age shouldn't be unrealistic or an unheard of thing. This is not the story of a child growing up with strange powers and living their childhood as an oddity. Because kids with autism already feel like that. This is a story of a grown adult whose already learned what life will be like for them in their mental state. But who gets to have an opportunity as a hero, and bring their insight into that dimension of the world by sharing perspectives others can't see, and seeing perspectives that others had seen for themselves -for the first time. .... I was just working on chapter 6 sketch so all these concepts are in my head... Hehe... But Im rambling now so yeah...

First Panel: "Wried" *Weird

Also: He's 26 w**?!

@VadanDrumist: Ha! Maybe. But Manic only leaves the house on Wednesdays to play games with friends, no one besides their friends really know them, so the odds of getting recognized are slim. Someone would have to looking for them.

Also I'm really sweating to get chapter 4 done, I thought I'd have it down by now. This is kinda the midpoint of chapter 3 and it's still not finished. I'd hate to delay this chapter any longer, I just need to buckle down and finish the color and FX so I can add the words finally. Side note, writing chapter 5 currently and it seems to be the most action packed so far. But to be fair I thought that about this chapter when I wrote it. So it seems to be subjective.

As long as people don't recognize you by your distinctive orange scarf.
