Salinger was in excellent physical condition during the prime of his career, though he presumably is unable to maintain that condition while in the mental hospital. He was self-trained in combat and was a fair combatant. He is also an amateur poet but is limited by being criminally insane.
His primary weapon was his Purifier gun, capable of firing a laser-like beam of white light which could fire a laser-like beam of energy capable of totally incinerating a man within seconds or burning a man-sized hole in a reinforced brick wall in minutes. It was accurate up to thirty yards.
He employed a limited arsenal of surveillance devices and offensive weapons, stored in a specially equipped armored truck, which he used to locate and track his victims.Unlike Everbest, Salinger's mission was not religious in nature, but he rather considered himself a poet, and that others should "Live a poem, or die a fool." He sought to cleanse the world of human trash, those who lived only for the moment, that despoiled human or worldly resources, that dealt in crime and corruption, and that negatively affected the quality of life of those around them.
Weight: 197 lbs.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#58) - Salinger's college career was interrupted by a hitch in the army.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 - BTS) - When Salinger was discharged from the army, the doctors said he was very mixed up.
(Foolkiller I#2 (fb)) - Salinger was jailed for disorderly conduct: though he claimed to have only been defending himself.
(Omega the Unknown#9 (fb) - BTS / Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb)) - While sharing a Florida prison cell with Richard Rory, Greg Salinger was inspired by Rory's stories of Ross G. Everbest, the Foolkiller. Salinger listened closely as Rory told him where Everbest had died and where he could find his weapons and costume. Salinger also enjoyed hearing about Rory's old girlfriend, Ruth Hart.
(Omega the Unknown#9 (fb) - BTS) - Realizing Everbest had been insane, Salinger vowed to carry out his mission correctly by secularizing it.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb)) - Upon his release (or possibly his escape) from prison, Salinger liberated the Foolkiller's equipment and threw himself into a period of intensive training. He then tracked Rory to New York to thank him for his inspiration.
(Omega the Unknown#8) - Foolkiller observed the arrival of Richard Rory in Manhattan via the Port Authority bus terminal, then followed him back to the apartment of Ruth Hart, Amber Grant, and James-Michael Starling where he slipped an envelop containing one his Foolkiller cards (plus a handwritten "and your friends, too!) under the door. Richard, having seen Everbest perish, was mortified to receive the card.
(Omega the Unknown#9) - Salinger incinerated a store owner and an alleged
shoplifter (Tommy) who had gotten into a scuffle. Omega the Unknown actually saw
Salinger fleeing, but chose not to pursue him.
As Richard lamented his impending doom, Foolkiller appeared and introduced himself. Rory recognized his voice as Salinger's and was immediately relieved, and Amber joked that the neighborhood needed a Foolkiller, to which he responded: "I know, that's why I'm here). Salinger insisted he WAS the Foolkiller now, punctuating his statement with a burst of his Purifier gun that disintegrated a piece of the floor. He then greeted Amber, almost flirting with her, before departing to complete his mission.
Soon thereafter, as the criminal Blockbuster prepared to break the neck of his exhausted antagonist, Omega, Foolkiller disintegrated him with a blast from a nearby rooftop, noting that Blockbuster was pathetic, always seeking to prove something and never having a poetic thought, word, or deed. He told Omega that he had performed poetically, but that he hadn't rendered his final verdict; he'd be watching Omega closely.
(Foolkiller I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Salinger slew numerous fools, though most were never connected to him.
(Foolkiller I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Salinger incinerated Merle Singer's boyfriend after he had poured sulfuric acid on her face. At her request, he brought some of the acid back to her in a decorative bottle to keep as a reminder. Merle became close friends with Salinger, treating his injuries and helping him as needed.
(Foolkiller I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Salinger began to go mad from his failure to change anything.
(Defenders I#74 (fb)) - Foolkiller considered purifying a mugger, but instead followed him to a dope dealer, Dunbar, whom he followed back to a loan shark, Mr. Trottio. Deciding Trottio was most worthy of purification, Foolkiller confronted him, but when Trottio admitted his guilt and begged Foolkiller to end his torment, Foolkiller realized that Trottio did indeed have some purity in his heart, so he let him live.
(Defenders I#74 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller contemplated how best to re-dedicate his mission, and he eventually learned of Lunatik, whom he thought it would be his destiny to slay.
(Defenders I#75 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller saw Dollar Bill's Defenders documentary, and decided that the Defenders ineptitude branded them as fools...and that the documentary itself was presented in a tasteless, insulting manner.
(Defenders I#73) - Seeking to execute Lunatik or Professor Harrison Turk, Foolkiller traveled to his Empire State University apartment where he encountered Dollar Bill and Ledge, telling them that "in the name of purity, balance, and aesthetic perfection, his (Lunatik's) blot must be eradicated."
(Defenders I#74) - Foolkiller wondered if Bill and Ledge were apprentice fools, but soon explained how he had dedicated himself to relaunching his career by taking out the greatest of fools, such as Lunatik. Hoping the Defenders could stop Foolkiller, Dollar Bill suggested Foolkiller accompany him to meet them.
(Defenders I#75 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller secretly considered the Defenders to be fools and planned to kill them, so he played along with Dollar Bill so Bill would bring him to them.
(Defenders I#74 - BTS) - Foolkiller had Dollar Bill and Ledge stop and pick up Richard Rory and Amber Grant before taking a train to Long Island.
(Defenders I#74) - Richard and Amber tried to subtly guide Foolkiller away from his mission, to no avail. When the engineer slammed on the breaks upon seeing the Hulk on the train tracks ahead, and Foolkiller was knocked to the ground and came up with his gun drawn, accusing the railroad of being run by fools. Bill calmed him down again, and Foolkiller backed up, realizing that killing the engineer would be an ignoble beginning to his career...too inelegant, too inartistic. The Hulk subsequently tore up the railroad, and it was several hours later before Bill brought Foolkiller and the others to the Richmond Riding Academy and introducing Foolkiller to the Defenders (Clea, Hellcat, and Valkyrie were present). When Valkyrie mentioned that she only used the flat of her blade against foes so as not to slay them, Foolkiller stated that that sounded foolish, called the Defenders fools, and blasted her sword from her hand.
(Defenders I#75) - When Valkyrie threatened Foolkiller, he
took Bill hostage, turning aside Richard and Amber's efforts to talk him down,
and he forced the Defenders to accompany him into their media room; Valkyrie
instructed Clea to stay her hand to avoid risking Bill, and Clea obeyed, though
she was confident she could stop him safely. Foolkiller then showed them a video
of Dollar Bill's documentary, which he felt condemned the Defenders and Bill as
fools. When he got caught up in his own tirade, Valkrie slammed into him and
knocked him down, but he kept hold of his Purifier gun and blasted her; though
she wasn't disintegrated, she was stunned. Foolkiller then blasted the ceiling,
which collapsed; Valyrie recovered and saved the others, but some debris knocked
out Clea. Hellcat alone pursued Foolkiller, staying just out of reach, but his
Purifier gun progressively damaged Richmond's mansion, setting it on fire.
Finally, Valkyrie caught up to the pair and swiftly dispatched Foolkiller with a
series of blows. Police arrived soon after.
Nighthawk then arrived, and he was furious that the Defenders had been unable to stop a non-powered guy with ray-gun, allowing the utter destruction of his mansion. Already on edge from his recent legal issues, Nighthawk disbanded the Defenders.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb)) - Valkyrie watched as paramedics loaded Foolkiller into an ambulance. During a rainstorm, the ambulance wrecked; though the paramedics thought him mad, Foolkiller saw the caring in their souls as a form of poetry, and he patched up the survivors as best he could before making his escape.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb) - BTS) - The authorities accused Foolkiller of causing the wreck. Despairing over the enormity of his quest, Foolkiller realized he needed a better understanding of the poetic nature before he could slay the greatest fools. He began a thorough study of the great poets, but still found fools muddying the waters around him. Finally he concluded that his ability to perceive fools must be improved. He would wait for fools to meddle with his life; by their very nature they would seek him out, so he could end their useless lives.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#58 (fb) - BTS) - Salinger signed up for a computer course for his minor, but the registrar apparently mixed things up so he ended up in Chemistry 101.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#58) - His watch stopped, Salinger feared he was late for class at ESU, and he nearly collided with Peter Parker. As he was teacher of the class, Peter accompanied him there and assured him it wasn't as bad as he feared. Afterwards, Salinger told Peter how much he'd enjoyed the lecture, never having realized Chemistry could be so interesting, especially its classical nature. Parker thought Salinger seemed nice, but recognized that he was extremely intense.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#59) - Salinger who accosted by FBI
agents (John Berk and Sam) as part of an ongoing investigation where one of his
old friends was a suspect in a criminal case. Though Salinger denied knowledge
of the matter, one of the agents sensed how he tensed up and figured he was
Salinger was irate that the agents were bothering him when he was trying to live his life in peace. Noting that the men couldn't see the truth that was right before their eyes, Salinger decided they were fools.
Having seen the confrontation, Spider-Man confronted the men, who revealed themselves to be FBI agents.
(Spectacular Spider-Man II#60) - As Salinger sat on a park bench, stressing over his problems, he triggered Peter Parker's spider-sense; but as soon as Peter greeted Greg and asked him about his problems, his sense of danger faded. Greg confided that the registrar had lost the paperwork on his grant-in-aid, and Peter sympathized. As they split up, Greg noted to himself that despite being in science, Parker had the soul of a poet.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller sent one of his cards to FBI agent Sam (presumably the same Sam from Spectacular Spider-Man#59) along with a letter telling him where to meet him. Sam recruited another agent, Lou Caldwell, to try to take down the Foolkiller.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller sent one of his cards to the registrar Harvey MacNamara.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225) - As Sam and Lou waited to ambush Foolkiller, Salinger incinerated Sam, then blasted Lou's gunhand. As Foolkiller approached, Lou told him that the FBI would find the notes in their apartments, but Foolkiller showed him that he had already been to their apartments to claim their notes, then incinerated Lou and tossed his notes atop his smoldering corpse, where they caught fire, too.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 - BTS) - The next day, Salinger was stuck waiting in the admissions office and missed Parker's lecture.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225) - Greg later met with Parker,
apologizing for missing his class and complaining how his grant was still tied
up in red tape in the registrar's office. Foolkiller subsequently confronted the
registrar Harvey MacNamara and was annoyed to find that MacNamara had not
received his card. Before he could execute MacNamara, however, Spider-Man
arrived to stop him. Spider-Man dodged Foolkiller's blasts, but then one took
down the ceiling, enabling Foolkiller to leap through a window and use his sash
as a para-glider to land safely. Spider-Man caught to the Foolkiller as he ran
down the Manhattan street minutes later, but Foolkiller, having researched and
memorized the subway schedules, blasted a hole in the street, leapt atop a train
that was passing underneath.
Foolkiller returned to his semi-trailer truck base and reflected on his mission, noting that both those who inspired him and those who supplied his computer technology had been fools.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225 - BTS) - Salinger came to the graduate student teachers' office seeking Peter Parker, and when Deb Whitman couldn't tell him where Parker was, Salinger called her a fool and stormed out.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#225) - A fuming Salinger again set off
Parker's spider-sense, but again when Peter began talking to Greg, the danger
sense subsided. Greg complained about how an on campus letter he sent had never
arrived, and Peter noted that the campus mailroom was nonfunctional and staffed
by fools. Thanking Peter for the information, Salinger took off, and Peter's
spider-sense again flared, causing him to doubt its reliability; but when Deb
told Peter than Greg had called her a fool, Peter began to suspect his true
Meanwhile, Foolkiller assaulted the mailroom staff, but Spider-Man swiftly arrived to stop him. Foolkiller blasted over a set of heavy shelves, knowing that Spider-Man would stop to save the mailroom staff from being crushed. Foolkiller escaped back to his base and began to call up information on Spider-Man to learn how to stop him, but Spider-Man arrived seconds later and confronted him anew. Blowing up a gas tank with a blast from his purifier gun, Foolkiller took off again, seeking a place to hide. He encountered a homeless person, who told him that anyone who would be gunning for Spider-Man would have to be a fool. Realizing the truth in this, Foolkiller raised his weapon to his own head, but Spider-Man snatched it away and then webbed up Foolkiller's body. Spider-Man was sad when his suspicions of Foolkiller's true identity were confirmed, and he told Greg he would take him to a place where he could rest, away from fools.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#226) - Foolkiller arrived, in a straight-jacket, at Mitchell State mental health care hospital in upstate New York, raving that Spider-Man (whose face he saw in the overhead lighting) was laughing at him for failing to kill the greatest fool of all, himself. He begged the ambulance drivers to kill him.
(Foolkiller I#2 - (fb) - BTS) - A New York court accepted Salinger's insanity plea, and he was relocated to his native Indiana, to the Central Indiana State Mental Institution.
(Captain America I#319) - Suspecting Salinger or his successor could be the ones killing super-villains (it was actually Scourge), Captain America (Steve Rogers) visited Salinger in the mental hospital. Kept in a padded cell in a straight-jacket, Salinger remained a raving maniac, convincing Captain America that he was truly still in custody and not associated with the recent killings.
(Foolkiller I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Salinger was kept in a padded cell for a full year after his arrival.
(Foolkiller I#1 (fb) - BTS) - When given access to a pencil, Salinger stabbed himself in the neck.
(Foolkiller I#1) - Salinger shared his dream with his psychologist(?), Dr. Mears, voicing his belief that he wanted to be well. He gained permission to write letters to friends as well as newspapers.
(Foolkiller I#1) - Three months later, Salinger was frustrated that he had had no responses or publications, but suspected the return address on the envelops caused readers to think him crazy. He decided to start writing to TV talk shows, and Dr. Mears was encouraged to see him showing interest in computer programs.
(Foolkiller I#1) - Weeks later, Salinger had completed his tirade on the fools of the world and began batch sending them out to talk shows.
(Foolkiller I#1) - Still later, he was frustrated that he had sent out 67 such letters and had no response. Meanwhile, talk show host Runyan Moody came across the 66th letter and was intrigued, sending his secretary to go find the first 65.
(Foolkiller I#1) - One week later, Runyan Moody contacted Greg Salinger about being on his show.
(Foolkiller I#1) - Salinger was present as Drs. Mears and chief of staff Dr. Wiggins attempted to deny the interview with Moody, but Moody then threatened to do a show about denying their patients' rights, and the doctors acquiesced
(Foolkiller I#1) - Moody prepared Salinger for his live TV interview within the institution.
(Foolkiller I#2) - Moody began his interview, and, after
detailing his and his predecessor's origins and motivations, Salinger took a
number of calls, including one from Kurt Gerhardt, who had developed a similar
philosophy after suffering a number of hardships. Gerhardt subsequently wrote to
Salinger, detailing his recent woes, and Dr. Mears encouraged Salinger to write
back if he felt he could help Gerhardt. Salinger wrote back only, "Tell me
more!" and Gerhardt responded with a detailed explanation of his thoughts on
what was wrong with the world. Salinger kept this letter from Dr. Mears, telling
him he wished to keep Gerhardt's stuff private, and then told Mears that he was
going to cut contact with Gerhardt. Days later, Salinger used his one weekly
call to contact Salinger and give him the number for a computer bulletin board,
telling him to use the alias "Miles Fish" and to call him "Ian Byrd." When
Gerhardt logged on the next day, Salinger gave him instructions on how to pick
up his spare costume and purification gun for Merle Singer at Y & L Personal
Storage. Using the alias J.D. Pierre, Gerhardt picked up the materials.
Gerhardt picked up the materials and ended up using the weapon to incinerate a pair of muggers on the way home.
(Foolkiller I#3) - As Gerhardt began a series of executions as the Foolkiller in Manhattan, Dr. Mears questioned Salinger whether he knew anything about this. Salinger denied all knowledge, and Mears eventually believed him because Salinger had neither defended this new Foolkiller nor used the word fool.
(Foolkiller I#4) - Salinger was disappointed when Gerhardt
hadn't posted to the message board for two days. Dr. Mears met with him to
discuss a book Salinger was allegedly writing. Salinger asked if he would ever
be released, but Mears pointed out that Greg didn't even understand the central
issue of his therapy.
The next day, Gerhardt later sent a message noting a beating he had taken and worried he might not be the right man for the job. Salinger responded that he had taken similar such beatings, and that Gerhardt should focus on smaller prey first before working up to the more dangerous types. Salinger also told Mears that he was coming to accept his life in the institution.
(Foolkiller I#5) - Salinger was pleased as Gerhardt took to his mission in earnest. He continued to put off Mears, telling him his computer work was all part of a book he was working on, and refusing to let Mears see it until it was ready. He then walked amongst the other ranting patients, telling them that there was hope.
(Foolkiller I#6) - Salinger was driven to hysterics after reading that Gerhardt had taken money from a drug dealer and given it to a church. When Mears questioned him, he noted that if he'd have thought of doing that, he wouldn't be in a nuthouse today...he'd probably be a member of the Avengers.
(Foolkiller I#8) - Salinger was startled when one of the
hospital's administrative assistants approached him while he was leaving a
message for "Miles Fish." Figuring she didn't know he wasn't authorized to be
accessing the internet, he managed to keep his cool, agreeing to help her learn
how to use the modem program.
After Gerhardt had racked up a large headcount, Salinger complemented him on his work and asked if he was ready to graduate from squirrels to lions, and Gerhardt acknowledged that he was.
(Foolkiller I#9) - Salinger was worried and lonely when he received a communication from Gerhardt that he was going after some big targets and that he might be killed in the process.
(Foolkiller I#10) - When Foolkiller (Gerhardt) executed Runyan Moody on a live broadcast and then spoke to the audience, Salinger burst out laughing. Mears instructed the orderlies to take him up to his room. Salinger tried to fight back and was beaten into submission and agreed to go peacefully. The administrative assistant was disappointed because he had seemed to be doing so well, noting that he was going to teach her to use the modem. Investigating further into this, Mears discovered the connection between Salinger and Gerhardt, despite Salinger's utter refusal to answer any questions on the matter. Salinger noted that while each incarnation was irrelevant, "when the world begets too many fools, nature always provides a Foolkiller."
(Marvel Year In Review 1991) - Greg Salinger was interviewed as to his past as the Foolkiller as well as his aiding and abetting Gerhardt. Salinger explained what he did, supported Gerhardt's actions and choices, and claimed he did not know where Gerhardt was now..."so don't act like a fool, especially in front of strangers."
(Marvel Comics Presents I#172/4 (fb) - BTS) - Mike Clemson arranged for Foolkiller's release from the mental institution, hoping that his incineration style executions could be used to frame Vengeance for murder.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#172/4 (fb) - BTS) - Foolkiller rampaged through San Francisco, California, executing anyone who remotely struck his as foolish in any way. The Paranormal Law Enforcement Team's Uno sent her agents Rebecca Taylor and Michael Badilino.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#172/4) - After Badilino and Taylor arrived, they met with a local officer who speculated that the killer might be Vengeance, who could also incinerate victims. Foolkiller arrived and killed the cop for not seeing the truth, then fired on Badilino and Taylor, who dodged. Foolkiller carjacked a vehicle, noting the driver was foolish to be driving a convertible in this day and age. Vengeance pursued him, and Foolkiller crashed into a trolley car, then fired into the crowd, figuring there were so many fools in the city that he was bound to kill some just shooting at random. As Badilino approached, Foolkiller blasted him, but Badilino turned into Vengeance in time to save himself from incineration. Unphased by Foolkiller's purification blasts, Vengeance grabbed Foolkiller who remarked that they were kindred spirits, killing in the name of righteousness. Stating that he didn't kill, Vengeance knocked out Foolkiller with a rap on the head.
Comments: Created by Roger Stern, Lee Elias, and Jim Mooney.
Greg Salinger's last name wasn't revealed until Spectacular Spider-Man II#58.
The next issue box in Omega the Unknown#9 promised to reveal "Greg's secret sorrow," but Salinger/Foolkiller was not in Omega the Unknown#10, the last issue of the classic series.
Re-reading the Salinger stories in Spectacular Spider-Man II#58-60 and Amazing Spider-Man I#225-226, I'm reminded of how Roger Stern was one of the first writers I was exposed to in comics, and one of the ones who got me hooked...along with Jim Shooter, Chris Claremont, John Byrne, etc.
Despite Foolkiller being one of my favorite
characters, I always wince when I see him used in new stories because they so
seldom capture the essence of the character. Compare Amazing Spider-Man#225 and
Foolkiller I#1-10 to Marvel Comics Presents#172/2 (though I think we can
attribute this one to drugs), New Avengers#1-3, and whatever arc Gerhardt's
currently being used in. I feel the same way about Hellstorm and Howard the
The MAX Foolkiller series of 2008 is quite good, however. I definitely recommend it.
The original OHotMU said the Foolkiller's gun could incinerate up to several hundred cubic feet of matter, whereas the Deluxe handbook it said he could incinerate a human or a human-sized portion of brick. "Spidermike" Fichera speculates that perhaps the original amount given refers to the total amount it can disintegrate before recharging. So if the average person is like 12 cubic feet, then the gun could maybe be used on 25 people? Sounds reasonable to me!
"J.D.Pierre" is an homage to Pierre Salinger (dipolomat)
and J.D. Salinger (the father of the Menahem Golan produced Captain America star
Matt Salinger and the author of Catcher in the Rye).
Thanks to Brandon Nash for pointing out the full names of Dr. Mears and Sam Buckley from Foolkiller's profile in Defenders: Strange Heroes (2012).
