* CriticalResearchFailure: In the 2016-17 Marvel NOW ''Foolkiller'' miniseries, Salinger is now allegedly a therapist with degree in psychiatry. During his appearances in Deadpool, he made references to also going to graduate school for psychiatry. It would be more appropriate to say that Salinger has a degree in psychology. A psychiatry degree involves first qualifying to be an M.D. (Medical Doctor) and then additional training in psychiatry. You need to be an M.D. because this is required to prescribe medication of any kind. Greg does not give the impression that he has spent the years needed for an M.D., residency, and years of additional psychiatric training. And his history makes it somewhat improbable. With his apparent education (which seems to be a Master's Degree at most), he may barely still qualify as a psychological therapist but he would most likely be working in tandem with a psychiatrist. And, again, given his own history, as well as the fact that he would be relatively new to the practice, he would definitely be working under heavy supervision.

* CharacterDerailment: In recent years, Gerhardt and Salinger have showed up in issues of {{Deadpool}}. Currently, Salinger is a member of Deadpool's Mercs for Money. In keeping with Deadpool's comedic nature, this team consists of various C and D list characters who are considered either a failure or a joke.

** Gerhardt hates Deadpool and has attacked him while institutionalized. The reason, Gerhardt had an unrequited crush on his therapist, Dr. Ella Whitby. Whitby, however, had an unrequited crush on Deadpool. Deadpool goes on to humiliate Gerhardt and escape from the institution.
** Greg Salinger eventually joins Deadpool's ''Mercs For Money''. Evidently, Salinger isn't aware of the negative history between Deadpool and fellow Foolkiller Gerhardt.

* FanonDiscontinuity: This is how most Foolkiller fans treat any post 1991 appearances of Salinger of Gerhardt, in which they clearly act out of character:
** The bizarre Lunatik episode in which a renegade FBI agent allegedly had Salinger temporarily released so that he could frame Comicbook/GhostRider expy Vengeance. The Foolkiller's method of executing his victims by burning is similar to Vengeance's. That's all that the two have in common however, except for the fact that Vengeance does not kill, he only torments.
** Gerhardt was amongst the many villains who escaped from The Raft and joined The Hood's army during ''Civil War''. Still later, he was seen in a mental hospital picking fights with Deadpool and losing.
* HarsherInHindsight: The 1990-91 Foolkiller limited series was wrapping up around the same time that Jeffrey Dahmer and his crimes were revealed. Comics have to be written and illustrated months ahead of their publishing date so this had to be just coincidental. However, the ninth issue was released in July, the same month that Dahmer was apprehended. Although readers knew all along, it was in this issue that police discovered the identity of the Foolkiller.
* InNameOnly: This is the attitude many fans take towards the Marvel Max Foolkiller.

This is how most Foolkiller fans treat any post 1991 a lot of the post-1991 appearances of Salinger of or Gerhardt, in which they clearly act out of character:
with major examples being:
** The bizarre Lunatik episode in which a renegade FBI agent allegedly had Salinger temporarily released so that he could frame Comicbook/GhostRider expy character Vengeance. The Foolkiller's method of executing his victims by burning is similar to Vengeance's. That's Vengeance's; that's all that the two have in common however, except for the fact that as Vengeance does not kill, he only torments.
** Gerhardt was amongst among the many villains who escaped from The Raft and joined The Hood's ComicBook/TheHood's army during ''Civil War''. ''ComicBook/CivilWar''. Still later, he was seen in a mental hospital picking fights with Deadpool SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}, and losing.
* HarsherInHindsight: The 1990-91 Foolkiller limited series
was wrapping up around among those vying for the same time that Jeffrey Dahmer and his crimes were revealed. Comics have to be written and illustrated months ahead of their publishing date so this had to be just coincidental. However, the ninth issue was released in July, the same month that Dahmer was apprehended. Although readers knew all along, it was in this issue that police discovered the identity of the Foolkiller.
