If Jack dies at the hands of Lilith, his mask falls off and also his actual confront is visible. His confront is dedeveloped, through a vault symbol branded right into it, and also his left eye blinded. There are contending hypotheses around the cause of Jack's injuries:

Angel accidentally injured her father once she was young and also unable to completely control her siren powers.

Borderlands 2: Handsome Jack

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - Handsome Jack (no mask)

Borderlands 2 is just 5 years after the first game, and The Pre-Sequel is somewbelow between the two. Since it looks prefer Jack gets injured at some time after the start of TPS, theory #3 is out, #2 still has actually a possibility, and also #1 is possible - some guesses put Angel in her beforehand 20's in the time of Borderlands 2, mid-to-late teens during the first game, so control of her powers may have been an problem, although her 'phaseshift' power (hacking) doesn't seem favor it would certainly have the ability to carry out this to Jack, unmuch less tbelow was more to her power.

EDIT: my guess is that whatever before it was it was resulted in Jack to turn.

I feel like the initially two are the a lot of likely.

I like a bandit doing it, bereason it would describe why he has such an intense hatred for them.

It's evident by his disdain for Bandits and Psychos, and also the fact that the brand is put to make his confront look choose a psycho mask, that it was among them.

On a tangent: I hoped throughout the whole game that tbelow would certainly actually be nothing wrong with Jack's confront. I believed it would certainly be a brilliantly subtle display of "my perfect challenge isn't perfect enough" paranoid narcissism. I was sad when I saw otherwise, however was exceptionally intrigued. I'm hyped for the prequel.
