** 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.

** It should be noted that the continuity of the MAX series with the mainstream Marvel universe isn't 100% official. Some of its stories seem to be apocryphal, similar to UltimateMarvel.

* ConfessedToALesserCrime: In the 2016 series, Greg goes after his patients who instead of addressing their very serious malefic actions (such as, but not limited to, rape, assault, and murder), opt to talk about their more banal compulsions such as OCD, Chronic Bedwetting, and being a Furry.

* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedEvil: After he was released from the mental institute, Greg game to regret helping Kurt become the third Foolkiller due to his more extreme (and deranged) brand of crimefighting.

* MotiveDecay: Kurt and Greg both came to suffer from this, going from vigilantes to hired guns in their own ways although after leaving the Mercs for Money, Greg's appetite for slaughtering fools is coming back.

* GogglesDoNothing: Greg's second Foolkiller costume is equipped with an ever-present and seldom-used pair of goggles. The glasses he wears as a psychologist are also phony though they're meant to prop up his image as a respectable mental health care specialist.


Added DiffLines:

* PsychoPsychologist: Greg is an interesting offshoot of one of these. If you're willing to change your ways and become a better person, you get an understanding and sincere psychologist. If you decide to stay a bad guy, well, you get the psycho.
