Bane by TerminAitor Bane by TerminAitor
Bane, the berserko thug. Instead of a leather mask, I used a metalic helmet in this design, wich I think gives him a more "beastly" look. By erasing the facial expresion, all the personality remains in his acts, which in Bane's case are all pure brute force, wall braking and car smashing fun( I don't remember quite well, but I thin he didn't speak in the film, did he?). The handcuffs and the belt have those rings that give a clue of the way Bane is held every time he is arrested, chained like a berserker dog (not for long, of course).

His skin shows the effects of the esteroids he uses, giving him a strange tone... this last detail comes from the design from The Batman, where you can see Bane mutate in a very original way. Nevertheless, my favourite Bane is the one from the Gotham Knights series.

EDIT: (after looking Bane up in Wikipedia) Well, wadayaknow, it seems Bane is a more whise fella than you could imagine by looking at his latest incarnations. My bad, lack of documentation. Although he seems to be famous for braking Batman's back XD

I really, really hate Bane. He is so boring. I wish the Joker would just ill him.

Sad thing is few people do Bane justice, making him the typical hulking moron, when he is actually meant to be a genius. Favorite Batman character, though, indeed. Amazing physique and mind.

Agreed, I mean, this is the guy who found out Batman's secret identity in less that a year, the guy who escaped from a max security asylum on an island, but everyone thinks he's a moron. Beside my rant, wonderful picture.

Oh yeah, bane is actually a genius dude figuried out who bats was in like 3 months by just observing him. Writers play him off as a strong idiot, guess it's cause frankly bane is a better tvillian then the joker, he is smart as bats if not smarter and can back it up with his physique.

Bane is my least favorite Bat villain because, for as smart as he's made to be, he's still just a thug with biceps the size of thanksgiving turkeys. He's a one-trick pony; all he's ever done of note is break Batman's back. If you can remember anything he's done since then without doing external research, then you have my respect, friend.

Bane has done much more. He is not just a simple thug he is perhaps one of batmans most formidable opponents. He broke out every villain in the violent ward of arkham asylum as part of his plan to "break the bat". He strangely knows batman better than any other villain to date, as he was the first villain to deduce batmans identity just by looking at him. He has also teamed up with batman temporarily after having a change of heart, and he ends up stopping a south american nuclear weapon scandal. He is injured and placed in a lazarus pit and the affects of the lazarus pit change him into a villain once more. no external researxh done my friend :D just love me some bane
