Sometimes superhero comics have the heroes argue over fighting alien invasion vs. fighting more "day to day" villainy.

I'm not sure how often Mark Richards is called Ink. It is usually either "the Tattooed Man" or "Tattoo."
Trigger warning for some sexist words getting thrown at Vixen.

I posted this a while back, but just the part from TITANS #35. Most of the responders said they agreed with Mark, saying Mari was jumping the gun.

Minor point: I believe Mari's name is pronounced MAH-ree, so it doesn't sounds like "Mary" or "Marie."

The first seven pages are from TITANS #35.

Mark Richards, a.k.a. Tattoo, joined Deathstroke's Titans to get a chance to go after Slipknot, who had killed Mark's son. After Mark killed Slipknot, he left Slade's group. Now...

Vixen and Tattoo know each other, but how? Was it the FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: INK miniseries I didn't read?

And here is seven pages (plus the cover) from TITANS #36.

Mark's origin story is vague. He was a soldier, disappeared after a helicoptor crash, then showed up with magic tattoos. If these magic tattoos weren't his choice, then we can see some of his "problem."

"...unfinished business."

I can guess that's a flashback to Mark rather violently killing Slipknot.

The Fuck is wrong with Chesire in that flashback?

"League colors don't run."

Oh my goooood. That's terrible. I might half expect something that trite to come out of Guy Gardner's mouth, but... Ugh.

Also, yeah, when the heck was this guy up for membership in a League team? Like, ever? I know Major Disaster got time on some teams (and JL Elite explicitly exists for covert/off-the-books stuff) but...

Ah. That is one of those "necessary" tie-ins I did not read.
