Writer Andrew Robinson on the work, as well as Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz with the accompanying art, have much to be proud about with Overwatch’s character Symmetra.
In the fourth Overwatch digital comic, it’s revealed that Symmetra is actually somewhere on the autism spectrum. Her character is treated with both levity and care, and it really adds to her character. The comic depics an accurate portrayal of someone living on the autism spectrum.
“Sanjay has always said I was… different. Everyone has. Asking where I fit on the spectrum. It used to bother me. Because I knew it was true. It doesn’t bother me anymore. Because I can do things nobody else can do.”
Overwatch releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC May 24th.
