7. The Third "Tattooed Man"
Alias: Mark Richards
First Appearance: DC Comics: Green Lantern Vol. 4 #9, 2006
Why skip the second "Tattooed Man" straight for the Third? Because ungrateful people are frowned upon. John Oakes aka #2, used what he learned from his former cellmate Tarrant to defeat and then freakishly absorb him, excluding him from this list. Which leads to Mark Richards. The former U.S. Marine turned hitman acquired his tattoos from the art of “sin-grafting,” allowing him to take the sins of others and put them on himself to redeem the lives of the people he’s killed. Apparently all his victims had tattoos of their sins… how convenient.
