Tomoko Fujinami from Canvas 2 has a heart condition. She would fit in well I think.

It's not every day you get Guinness and Wheelchair in the same context...
Or "bound". :wink:

Was reminded of this while rereading the headcanon thread, and so have a few more to add.
First, the Doof Warrior from Mad Max: Fury Road. Possibly the most badass blind man since Zatoichi. He may be working for the villain, but you can't help but love a guy who plays a flamethrowing guitar. See you in Valhalla, you crazy-awesome dude.
Second, a couple of characters from RWBY. (A series, incidentally, that a flamethrowing guitar would be right at home in.) Due to injuries sustained in a fight with his father, Mercury Black lost his legs from the midthigh-down. But considering his prosthetic legs have guns built in, I don't think he has any complaints.
Also, Yang has her right arm severed just above the elbow at the end of Volume 3. No word yet on whether she'll get some sort of weaponized prosthetic replacement yet.
Third, in a weird way, Shockwave from Transformers, at least the G1 incarnation. After all, he only has one eye, and one hand. (Although the other arm ends in a laser cannon, he still can't pick things up with that.)

TBH, I have not really read a series with disabilities, but I have many OC's with them, and I plan to write manga. If you are interested in hearing more about some, PM me. :)

On the subject of comic book characters, Deadpool may not be disabled, but he is certainly disfigured.

That and he has what should be fatal cancer.

Man, imagine Zack Morris telling Emi about Daryl Lorenz...

There's a Gundam series going on now (no, not that one about Martian orphans with iron blood), and one of the protagonists main characters has the same physical challenges as Emi.

You can watch it on YouTube!

SUB version
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkR4zK-_cRY

DUB version
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_AhubV8c7I

DUB version on another channel (which might still be available after December 8th)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYpcbs2rxa8

But the description on the official channel says "until December 8th", or more specifically, "Available until 8th December PM17:00 (JST)". So... watch it soon! Like, real soon!

Or just wait for the whole Thunderbolt series to finish first then buy the BluRay or something, if you're reading this by PM17:01 (JST) December 8th. (Sorry!)

Also, while I'm here, might as well start some meaningless flame wars!

THE SUB > THE DUB
FULL ARMOUR GUNDAM > REUSE PSYCHO ZAKU
FREEFORM JAZZ > SAPPY POP SONGS

Io Fleming: "My girlfriend and my taste in music are better than yours!"

Daryl Lorenz: "F*ck that noise! And at least my girlfriend survived the battle!"

Io Fleming: "Noooooo!!"

I don't know if this counts as notable per se, but I just watched a movie on Amazon about a killer mime called Silent But Deadly, and it featured a woman with a prosthetic arm in it. Since it was a meta sendup of slashers she was a total archetype of the final girl with a sad backstory, but her actual handicap was (pleasantly) surprisingly not the subject of mockery and the closest thing to a joke at her expense in that respect was actually a pretty badass moment where she clocks a guy with her arm after disconnecting it from her shoulder.

So that happened.
