Fridge: Comic Books

A reminder of the rules of Fridge Brilliance:

This is a personal moment for the viewer, but follows the same rules as normal pages, meaning no first person or natter. If you start off with "This Troper", really, you have no excuse. We're going to hit you on the head.

This revelation can come from anywhere, even from this very page.

Also, this page is of a generally positive nature, and a Fridge Brilliance does not have to be Word Of God. In fact, it usually isn't, and the viewer might be putting more thought into it than the creator ever did. This is not a place for personal commentary on another's remark or arguing without adding a Fridge Brilliance comment of your own.

The nice thing about reading things on the comic page is the ability to say "Wait a second, is that what I think it is?" and with just a flick of the wrist you can go back two pages.

Intercontinuity Crossovers
  • In a 90's Batman/Captain America crossover, when Joker discovers Red Skull's affiliation with the Nazis, he flat-out refuses to continue working with him, stating, "I may be a criminal lunatic, but I'm an American criminal lunatic!" Just so you know, the Nazis were known for systematic murder of anyone with a mental illness. - Nakayama90

  • IDW's More Than Meets the Eye gives us some beautiful fridge logic when it's revealed that 'bots with a memory stick or similar as an alt-mode (that is to say, the cassettes) were considered slaves before the war. At first this just registers as a 'well, that sucks' moment, but with some thought it ends up quite handily explaining why, aside from Rewind, every cassette character we've seen has been a Decepticon, and why being changed into a cassette was a severe punishment for former senator Ratbat - the Decepticons recruited heavily among the oppressed bots, since their initial impetus was fighting that oppression (that didn't last), and Ratbat was changed from a ruler to a slave - it'd be hard to think of a worse punishment!
