* ShoutOut: In the Marvel NOW series, while musing on the history of his alter ego, Greg mentions the O. Henry short story, the Helen Eustis novel, and the Anthony Perkins film all as inspiration for his predecessor, Everbest's adoption of the Foolkiller identity.

** In the 2016 Marvel NOW series, Salinger recalls that there was a comic book roughly based on the Foolkiller. The panel with this narration shows a picture of the Marvel MAX incarnation of the character. This isn't uncommon as it has been established that [[ShowWithinAShow Marvel Comics actually exist in the Marvel Universe]] and that they do publish fictionalized adventures of characters who exist in their version of real life.

* LogicalFallacies: You don't want to resort to these when trying to debate the Foolkiller, especially not in the 1990s limited series. As demonstrated by the following:
-->'''Gerhardt:''' Excuse me. But do you always demonstrate for peace by grabbing other people's property and kicking them in the face?
-->'''War Protester:''': Get off my case, geek. There's nothing wrong with using force to resist repression. That's what King George (Bush) is doing, right?
-->'''Gerhardt:''': I see. He can't achieve peace through violence, but you can? You're a fool. I kill fools.
** This, by the way, is an example of a "tu-quoque" fallacy, a variant on the ad-hominem.

* ComicBookTime: Curiously averted, partially. In the 1990-91 limited series, The Runyan Moody Show dates the activities of the First Foolkiller as far back as the early [[TheSeventies seventies]]. Salinger, in explaining his inspiration for taking on the mantle, refers to elements of the same decade that he found annoying. He refers to the shallow banality of the music ("Disco back then") and the testimonies at the Watergate hearings. The 1990-91 limited series is clearly set during the year of publication. The aversion, however, is not without faults. Spider-Man is not 10-15 years older like Salinger obviously is.

In the 2016 series, Greg acknowledges that he missed most of TheNineties, not because he was too young to remember, but because he was locked up for the decade. This evidently places his original Foolkiller years at least twenty years ago in his time.
