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 Batman & Captain America, 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.
  • Double fridge brilliance ensues when you realize Mark Hamill has voiced both criminal lunatics in his long and checkered career.
