A face with bruises.[1]

A bruise was a type of injury of the skin or other tissue, caused by physical trauma allowing blood to seep, hemorrhage, or extravasate into the surrounding interstitial tissues. Bruising could even occur deeper, such as in the muscle or even the bone.

When a Kryptonite meteorite crashed into a pea patch next to Paw Martingale, the explosion caused his face to bruise, giving him a shiner on his eye and bruising his cheek.[2]
