hi so i just saw power rangers and i’m gonna talk about billy being autistic!
the first thing - the best thing - is that he says it. out loud. kinda infodumps about it actually.
he fits a couple of the Big Stereotypes, but let’s be real it’s very hard to write an autistic character who fits none. his two Big ones are good memory and not getting sarcasm.
the first Autism™ thing we see is attention to detail, closely followed by being attached to objects and being nonverbal when upset.
he happy claps! usually in sets of 3! yay happy stimming!
early on he shows touch aversion (’can you please stop touching me now’), and when he’s bonded with others he initiates contact
i’m sure there’s more that slipped by me (given that i’m an autism so that’s Normal™ to me) but these are the Big Ones and i love him
