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...

Though I imagine the spell failure chance will be quite high.

Wait what? It’s called “roll for initiative”, unless of course this is still the surprise round.

And that is why it should not be up to the player to know when to roll perception.

i imagine manic wouldn't just toss his away like that, i mean, he's got a brain, something that valuable is intriguing to come by and i think manic might store it for an emergency

I imagine he had something planned for the remotes, but everyone will use them before the critical moment. Every good DM knows: do not make the plot device an easily used consumable, or something they’d sell/throw away. Although... a campaign session where the party has to hunt down an artifact they sold would certainly be interesting.

@TerrytheTeryx: Haha thanks, and well, this is like my, .... .... lets say 5th well established plot heavy comic that I'm actually putting effort into.... I've done a ton of other comics on this site and off, some that never made it online at all! I've been fine tuning the art of storytelling for years, and I'm sure its still not totally flawless, but world building is something I'm a natural at. So remember it may be complex and cool, but until I find my story telling formula, I've got no lead into the world of comics... My story telling powers are yours, (the readers) to judge. So I hope I can make a compelling story.... Let me know how its going every few pages! Any questions I will answer!

Honestly he should have expected this. Now we’ll either go full immersion, or jump cut to the end of the session (might not be the planned end, but the end nonetheless).

@Mars714: The amount of thought that went into all of this is spectacular!

@VadanDrumist: A) the scarf is actually a symbol of depression, as people with autism often has traits of other disabilities mixed in. B) the Glasses are just glasses, there is actually a panel when they are not wearing them, (page 4 chapter 1) The characters with four eyes have such to represent another disability, OCD, to represent their attention to details others usually over look. C) the fur, tail and exaggerated ears are part of the autism trait. Others with Autism my have fur too, or may only have exaggerated ears, or only a tail, or only exaggerated ears and a tail. The fur, ears and tail will always be different in color and appearance for each person who has them. IDK if you've seen the Flash game I made of various examples of some of the disabilities that appear in the comic. I put the link under the bonus content page, but here it is again: https://www.deviantart.com/mars714/art/Comic-Character-Desinger-Game-748754346 Anyway the point behind these changes is that people with autism experience the world in a way that is so different from most people their actions and personality is almost of another species/alien to others. It is a very noticeable trait, the only one that even come close to leaving the same impact on others is depression, which makes audible complaints. Hummm... I should make a page cataloging the disabilities we've seen in the comic so far...

So... could you explain the disability tied to A: Manic’s scarf (thought it was related to his Autism, but that gets a different power for each individual, and another character also has a scarf). B: Manic’s glasses (or: why Manic has glasses and others have literally four eyes). C: Manic’s fur (could be an artistic choice, but I saw another furred character so thought it would be better not to assume).
