Fridge / Fear Itself

The comic book

  • Fridge Logic: When something causes She-Hulk, Nighthawk, Howard the Duck, and Frankenstein's Monster to turn into monstrous versions of themselves, Howard the Duck turns into... a lizard creature. Repeat Howard the DUCK turns into a LIZARD as an apparently monstrous version of THEMSELVES.
  • During the sound bites of bad news as the world starts on a downturn in issue 2, one of the statements is "autism rates skyrocket" . Firstly, given that autism is diagnosed how is this possible? Did Cul retroactively make people autistic? Secondly, isn't it rather ableist to conflate autism with the ways the world is falling apart? It's being paired with mass deaths and disease epidemics.
