In this rant I’m going to readdress some of the things I said in my spoiler review of the dark knight rises, also I’m going to talk about other Batman villains.
This character has been around in comics for twenty years now, so far he is known as the man who broke the bat. Outside the comics writes seen to keep missing the boat with this character, they keep forgetting that he is a smart character he's not just a muscle guy. In the No Man's Land story he stops using venom because that was his strength and also his weakness. Also I don’t like some of the new looks for him outside the comics,
Here are some examples.
Well to be fair in the comics the writers don’t know what to do with him after the Knightfall storyline. I don’t like what they are doing with Bane in the New 52. One of the many things that bother me about the Knightfall story is that Bruce/Batman didn’t beat Bane, and I wish that Bane was proactive. What I mean by that is when Bane learns that Bruce is Batman I wish he would study Bruce Wayne as well so it can be a personally conflict, Bane would not only break the Bat but break the man as well. I was surprised that Bruce/Batman didn't suffer from PTSD after what he when thought in that story. When I found out that Mr. Nolan picked him to be the main villain in the dark knight rises I was pumped, because I thought he was going to get this character right. Mr. Nolan said that the reason why he picked Bane as the villains is because he wants a villain that will challenge Batman both physically and mentally, he also described him as a monster movie villain with a terrific brain. Sadly he didn’t fit that description in this movie, he has some smart lines but talking like your smart and being smart are two different things. He also had some bad lines.
