A character who has made a Deal with the Devil, released his Superpowered Evil Side or taken the Psycho Serum receives symbols, patterns or markings as a part of his Evil Makeover. They may only be Facial Markings, or be all over the body. Occasionally, they will start in one area, such as the neck or face, and spread out further the more powerful or evil the person becomes. These are generally more minor than those to the One-Winged Angel, though there may be some overlap between the two (see also Red Right Hand). Not to be confused with Marked Change, which should only include markings gained when a character powers up, not turning evil, or under any 'evil' influences. If demons or mind control is involved, or the powered-up version of the character is known as "Dark(Name)", it probably belongs here. The nicer version of this trope is "Power Tattoo" or "Birthmark of Destiny". For a character marked by an entity that I not turning them evil (see Claimed by the Supernatural). This trope's namesake makes it Older Than Feudalism.
