DisAbled Comic Characters

There are more disabled comic characters than I thought, so I thought I’d keep a list of them here for anyone who may be interested. If I’ve missed any, do drop me a line on and let me know.

Daredevil- blind. Echo’s love interest. I guess the name says it all.

Echo- can’t hear, but can imitate anything she sees perfectly.

Harper- Wheelchair using friend of Archie.

Hope Hibbert- can’t hear, but can read lips, even on security camera footage, something that Spiderman finds quite useful!

Oracle- Paralysed wheelchair using hacker from Batgirl comics.

Silver Scorpion- Muslim wheelchair user. Can move metal with his mind.

    Hey again, I’ve just notices this sub page – I’m certainly going to check these web comics out. But I would also like to put mine forward, its called Crip Strips. I’m looking for other people to submitted their work too, so it not monologue but dialogue of other people thoughts too. This blog is not going to be one off post as I have others drawing ready to go. I would love any feedback that you can offer. Thank you, Louise.

    Web comics offer quite a good selection;particularly Questionable Content, where of the three female leads, one has major MH issues over the suicide of her father, one is in therapy over trust issues, and the third has OCD. Nor are they simply background details, they have driven major plot arcs. In Schlock Mercenary, Elf, the major female character, lost both legs in combat, twice (at the level of technology in the story they can be grown back, though after the first incident she spent a year with a set of prosthethics), while one entire year-long story-arc focused on the quest to find Schlock a new set of eyes. In Crimson Dark, Whisper has had most of her body replaced with prosthetics, while Kari has elements of PTSD after the incident which gives the comic its name. Kai, the protagonist in Catalyst, is blind, as is Mia, one of the two leads in Unintentionally Pretentious.

    (NB Questionable Content and Unintentionally Pretentious are occasionally Not Safe For Work)
