Might you include Micah Fowler, the kid who played JJ in the sitcom Speechless? He was truly the heart of that successful program.

No. Not that movie, specifically.

I've seen 'Treasure Planet' and maybe one of the 'Treasure Island' films released after the 1950s, but I don't remember which one.

I've also seen a few episodes from "Black Sails" TV series.

=====

Btw, the image you provided is poorly formatted, mind if I find and add another image of the same character?

Well, the list is full. (35 options max)

You can keep suggesting if you want.

I may create another part of this poll.

BONAFIDE BOSS ⭐️, We do need Part 2... Because I just remembered two types of disability mildly similar to mine, which are not showcased that often.

FYC: 
Darkman (1990): Peyton Westlake (permanent nerve damage, mostly burnt skin) (I prefer steroid explanation from sequels to be non-canon myself, but even if we take it into consideration, his nerves are wrecked)
V for Vendetta (2005): V (permanent nerve damage)

In both cases characters seem empowered by the damage, but as someone with crippled nerves myself (much more mildly, of course) I can attest that it's "blssed with suck" scenarios. Both are pretty much disabled from the point of normal human anatomy and condition.

Sure. I'll look forward to that.

I'll consider your (together with ACT_1's) suggestions while making a part 2.

Yes, we can say that these characters are blessed. Take Daredevil for example, he's blind but has other super senses.

Thank you very much for suggesting and very sorry to hear about your disability. ❤️️

ACT_1,

Here's another way to copy-paste an image. You can try this for the time being.

  1. Open the image.
  2. Double click on the image. (make sure to select only the image)
  3. Use the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V shortcut commands to copy-paste the image.



Hope this helps. Good luck.

Q Leo Rahman,

It works for me, though.

May I know what browser you're using?

Google Chrome.

I use Google Chrome too.

Okay here's another way.

  1. Open the image.
  2. Right-click anywhere on the image and select "Inspect." (Be sure to right-click ON the image, not anyplace else.)
  3. (Once the element box opens) Press the delete key on your keyboard. (< easy or follow the gif given below)
  4. You will now have the "copy image" option when you right-click on the image again.



Note: Any edits you make will only appear on your personal screen, and last until you exit out. Meaning, you're not making any permanent changes, you're simply able to adjust it for the time being. In other words, you'll have to do this every time. ;(

Hope this helps. Good luck

Thank you very much. That's a great help. 

But I'd have to do that for any image I want to copy-paste/save an image (or alternately every time I close/open a PC). And that's going to be quite a hamper.
