Biography

When The Tattooed Strongman confronted the Batman, it looked like there was no stopping him. A powerful blow to the face barely fazed him. Unbeknownst, Batman had slid a bomb in the Tattooed Strongman's belt. He pushed him down a manhole, and The Tattooed Strongman promptly blew up.

In Other Media
