Powers and abilities

Ink possesses different abilities for every tattoo he has printed on his body.

  • The only power he is seen using is based on a radiation symbol tattoo on the palm of his hand. When directed at other people (without any visible energy projection between them), this causes his target to suffer the effects of radiation poisoning: specifically, it made them start vomiting uncontrollably, though it is unclear if prolonged exposure would have done more damage.
  • The tattoo on his left hand gives him super strength. The lines look similar to the banding on Colossus' flesh when he transforms, indicating a toughening of Ink's flesh also.
  • The two lightning bolt tattoos on his head give him telepathy, but this can be blocked by psi-shields.
  • The tattoos of wings on his back grant him flight.
  • The Caduceus symbol on his left hand grants him the power of healing others.
  • The Phoenix symbol over his eye allows him to produce energies similar to the Phoenix Force, but not actually tap into Phoenix energies.
  • The "explosive" symbol on his right biceps allows him to blow up objects.



Behind the scenes

  • In the comics, Ink is not a real mutant, but he's powered by Leon Nunez (The Tattoo Artist), who's the actual mutant.
  • A mutant is seen with a similar eye tattoo in the mutant concentration camp in the beginning of the film.
