Raised in a prison on the island of Santa Prisca for the crimes of his father, Bane dedicated his life to honing his mind and body into a perfect weapon.
In order to wage his unending war on injustice, Batman has developed his body as perfectly as he has his mind. But there’s one man who’s broken him. A man who stands in many ways as his exact opposite—a physical marvel and a genius without peer. But whereas the Dark Knight was born to fight crime, Bane was destined for a life of corruption.
Born in a prison on a remote Caribbean island, Bane was raised without pity or compassion. As an adult, he served as a test subject for the super-steroid called Venom. Superhumanly strong, Bane escaped his hell and headed to Gotham City—where he chose to make his mark by defeating the Batman. Though he succeeded, their initial battle was far from their last.
Since then, Bane has repeatedly tried to amass not only power, but territory, whether it’s Gotham City or his home of Santa Prisca. Often at war with his personal dependence on the super-serum that gives him his strength, Bane will never stop fighting to prove he deserves to rule.
