Batman – I Am Bane | Comics

In her attempt to recruit doctor Hugo Strange and the second-string villain Psycho-Pirate into Task Force X, Amanda Waller accidentally set them free. Strange then unleashed his Monster Men on Gotham to wreck havoc on the city (Night of the Monster Men) and Pirate to critically affect the psyche of young super-hero siblings Gotham and Gotham Girl (I Am Gotham). Though her brother did not survive in the end, Gotham Girl was suffering from a phobia that only Psycho-Pirate could save her from.

So, Batman took it upon himself to assemble his very own version of Suicide Squad with several key-individuals from Arkham to raid the island of Santa Prisca and kidnap Pirate, which he did upon confronting his dreaded enemy Bane. Since, Bane brought Pirate to cure his own life-long addiction to the Venom serum, he decides to come to Gotham and break everyone Batman cares about after this.

So, at Superman's Fortress of Solitude, Batman put Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin into a suspended animation for their own safety. Meanwhile, Alfred escorted Gotham Girl at Arkham Asylum under the disguise of a criminal and forces Roger Hayden to start her treatment with Psycho-Pirate's Medusa Mask. Bronze Tiger is taken down at his own hotel room, Bane's accomplice Bird shoots down Catwoman, then Trogg and Zombie tries to sneak attack on Commissioner Jim Gordon, only to be taken down with the aid of Duke Thomas.

Eventually, they all end up getting captured by Bane, who asks for Psycho-Pirate in exchange for their lives. In Batman's stern refusal, a furious Bane charges at him with the full power of Venom and savagely beats him to a pulp while they both recall their struggle as kids. In his last ditch attempt to stop his unstoppable enemy, Batman lured his nemesis into Arkham Asylum and freed all of the super-criminals to stop Bane. But can they really stop the man who doesn't fear anyone and once broke the Bat?

When this all ends for good at some point, Batman and Catwoman have some personal scores to settle among themselves that will surely change the life of these two forever.

Batman – I Am Bane

From the very beginning of the DC Rebirth wave, writer Tom King (Grayson – Agents of Spyral, Grayson – We All Die at Dawn) has started fabricating a well-devised plot that would lead to a story like this one. After the events of "I Am Suicide", he is joined by artist David Finch (Brightest Day, Forever Evil) again to draw a conclusion to his third venture with The Dark Knight and one of his most feared enemy there is.

Also this story features the huge roster of many Batman villains like Amygdala, Black Spider, Calendar Man, Copperhead, Doctor Phosphorus, Firefly, Flamingo, Hush, Mad Hatter, Man-Bat, Maxie Zeus, Mister Freeze, Scarecrow, Solomon Grundy, Two-Face and Zsasz. Whether they were the heavy hitters or the bottom-feeders, all were destined to fall in front of the vengeful spirit that Bane came as. The storyline collects issues #16-20, 23 and 24 from the third ongoing monthly volume of Batman comic-book series that will continue his ventures up next in "The War of Jokes and Riddles", featuring The Joker and The Riddler.
