After Damon was framed as a drug dealer by crime boss Frank D'Amico and sentenced to five years in prison, his pregnant wife committed suicide out of grief, but doctors were able to save and deliver their unborn daughter, Mindy, just before she died of an overdose. Marcus took Mindy into his care and raised her for the next five years until Damon was released from prison and was given custody of Mindy, who he trained to become the merciless vigilante Hit-Girl, with himself taking the mantle of Big Daddy, in order to bring down Frank D'Amico's organization as revenge for the frame and his wife's suicide.
Marcus tracked them down at their home and berated Damon for turning Mindy into a killer. He warned Damon that Detective Gigante, a corrupt cop, was working for D'Amico and that the blame of their actions was being pinned on Kick-Ass, another vigilante.
