* OnTheNext: So what exactly was "Greg's Secret Sorrow"? That's what was promised for issue 10 of Omega the Unknown (Salinger's first appearance). But we were left hanging due to the unexpected cancellation of the series with issue 10. That issue, instead was dedicated to trying to tie up all the loose ends with the title character Omega. Actually, they didn't manage to do even that.

--> "I voted for Reagan in '80 and '84 and Bush in '88. I was even swayed by the Willie Horton ad: the one about the killer-rapist on furlough from prison. But now my wardrobe looks more like Willie Horton's than George Bush's, and so does my bank account."

* HeelRealization: During his battle with {{Spider-Man}}, Greg Salinger, the second Foolkiller, runs into a bum that tells him that only a ''fool'' would want to fight Spider-Man, as Spidey is a genuinely good person who puts himself into danger to protect innocents. As soon as he realizes this, Salinger tries to turn his purification gun on himself, but Spidey stops him, and he's been incarcerated in a mental institution ever since.

** 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.
