I’m just now coming up for air after Googling “fictional characters on the spectrum.”
The number of characters—all very recent—astounded me.
They range from popular television shows (Crazy Eyes from Orange Is the New Black) to indie movies (Adam in Adam and Amelie in Amelie), with a few superheroes thrown in (Mr. Fantastic in Marvel Comics).
As well as being recent, they were all intentionally developed as being on the spectrum, if you can believe the published backstories.
