Reptile is reimagined as having a disease called harlequin ichthyosis, which gives him scales and back-to-front eyeballs. This is an actual existing condition, but in recent times medical breakthroughs have extended the lives of those suffering from this ailment (the oldest is 25, born in 1986).
Jax claims that Reptile likes to eat the heads of his victims. This refers to Reptile's fatality attack where he devours the head of his opponent.
