(Daredevil I#254) - Rip was mugging a man when Typhoid Mary walked down the alley in full costume, swords drawn. She convinced Rip to let the man go, then kissed him, scratching his face as he realized how hot her skin was. Rip and Typhoid went on a crime spree, killing drug dealers. As Typhoid set the room on fire, she wanted to make love with Rip right there. He struggled to assert his dominance over her by throwing a punch, but she seemed turned on by the violence, and he submitted to her, though he was disturbed by the open eyes of the corpses. Later, she ordered Rip to put bodies in trash bags and toss them in the street.

(Daredevil I#256) - The Kingpin sent Typhoid Mary to harass a jury member in a particular case, and she took Rip with her. Rip saw her berate the woman, and then deliver a bribe to her. They then went to Kingpin, who grew angry about Typhoid's flirtations with Rip, leaving Rip confused.
