Did KICK-ASS 3 Finale Have a Mind-Blowing Reveal?

SPOILERS ahead for anyone who hasn't read Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 3 finale. CBM pointed out something incredibly interesting that kind of blew my mind. There's a couple little Easter eggs in there that indicate that all the events that happened after issue #2 could have been a hallucination as a result from a coma Dave has been in after he got the shit kicked out of him. They never come right out and say it, but here are the clues that may prove this to be true.

"Near the end of Kick-Ass 3 #8, there's a scene with Dave and his girlfriend Val (a nurse) in the hospital. However, as you can see from the images below, Dave Lizewski's name is written on the list of patients in the ICU unit, something which makes little sense considering the fact that he's physically fine for the most part here."
"We also see in the background of another panel a man standing over his son's bed. Look familiar? If you go back and read through the second issue of the first volume of Kick-Ass, you'll see that it's an exact recreation of a scene from the opening of that comic when Dave's (now DEAD) father visits him after he was stabbed and hit by a car following his first attempt at fighting crime as Kick-Ass!"

Also, both of the panels confirm that he is in room number three. 

We can also go on to speculate about Dave's girlfriend being a nurse. Why a nurse? Is it because he is being taken care of by a nurse while he's in his coma? 

We also learn that the world of Kick-Ass is connected to Millar's other comic book titles  Nemesis and Superior. The site then brings up another interesting point… How crazy would it be if this and every other Millarworld title are all just a dream from a kid in a coma who wanted to try and be a superhero?
