I voted all three. Doc Manhattan for sure. He can't really reach out to us and he feels lost, or so it seems. Rorschach lacks a lot of social skills to say the least, and has bad hygiene (not that all Aspies have bad hygiene, I don't but some do), and Nite Owl doesn't seem to really get out much.

I definitely see Manhattan as an Aspie - he is so disconnected from the rest of humanity, and is not able to express his true emotions, though they are there.
Rorschach could possibly be, but I thought his biggest problem is an anti-social personality disorder.
Night Owl I think is just a bit of a nerd. Otherwise, he seems to have no problem charming Jupiter out of her panties. Pretty good social skills, I think.

None of them.

Rocsach: grew up in a hell hole always told he was nothing and was raped. Only time he felt like he matters or safe was behind the mask. As for hygiene...he was super poor.

Night owl. Just a shy geek that met his hero and copied him. If anything he was a super fan that took the step we all wish we could.

Dr. manhattan. He was a normal scientist till he went blue. When he became super he saw,heard and thought on a level only he could understand.
