I believe that the mark will be a chip. Somewhere in Revelation is a mention about God causing a 'sore' on the head/hand of those who accept the mark. Imagine something like an EMP pulse causing the mini-battery needed to power the chip to fail. The skin could then suffer an allergic reaction.
1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
3 And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.
4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces.
8 Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle.
10 They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.

the capital "S" represents a proper noun.
You have to remember,
you believe he is real,
I do not,
So, your truth is not the same as my own
I once believed in a Satan. In fact I was a very good Sunday-School-Teaching-Bible-Believing-Christian.
Now, I am not...
I don't think that Satan decieved me......
I think God(dess) does not get mad when we search for the Truth with a sincere heart,
and recognize that one religion does not hold the supreme truth.

well..I have to post my bit on the mark of the beast. the bible says many things about the mark in Revelation chapter 13...
-it is a man's number....(SS NUMBER)
-it is the Mark of the beast(MARK OF BEAST)
-it will be used for buying and selling largest city in world for buying and selling is....(NEW YORK)
-those who get it will burn with hellfire. (NUCLEAR HELL)
-we are instructed to calculate the number...(COMPUTER)
The last thing we need to figure out this number...is....wisdom
Take the letter A which is the first letter of the alphabet...multiply it by 6 representing the devils number. Lets assign all the letters in the alphabet 6*the number of the letter in the alphabet.
Adolf Hitler... oddly enough, adds up to 660. Interesting. Is it possible that perhaps Hitler was the prelude to the coming of the beast and the next despot will be the beast?
C=3x6=18 (and so forth...)
now...do that for all the letters of the alphabet...
we get numbers.
now...I challenge anyone to take the capital letters in parenthesis and add the values together...
All these words come up as 666.
MARK OF BEAST
US OF AMERICA
well...If anyone would like to take the real challenge....
figure out what Santa Claus comes out to......
If you reverse the order of the numbers...ie Z=6 and A=156...the word INTERNET comes up as 666. not saying that this is the code figured out...but simply to say that the number will take wisdom to figure out.
Perhaps much greater wisdom than this above.
By the way...to the guy who said that most of all the revelation prophecies have already been fulfilled...check your bible again. The current prophecy countdown is on hold between chapters 3 and 4 in revelation.
The word church disappears from the text and is seen no more until later on in the end of the book. Presumably because the church is no longer around (rapture).
