Bane – New 52 | Comics

Born to a revolutionary father who was a prisoner of Peña Dura, a child who would become Bane one day took his father's place and lived in the imprisonment of a flooded chamber for 17 years. As he grew to hate the world, he got cunning and incredibly strong using the super-steroid known as Venom. He came to Gotham City in quest of power but is opposed by Batman, whom he did not see coming.

He teamed up with Scarecrow and White Rabbit but the Court of Owls came into their way (Knight Terrors). Bane believed that both Batman and The Court are connected but following Night of the Owls, he is proved wrong. With the unexpected aid from Sebastian Clark, Bane set out to destroy The Court and then went up against a former Talon named Calvin Rose (Scourge of the Owls).

Even though Bane snapped Rose's neck in Santa Prisca, he came back and defeated Bane's army. Bane then killed Sebastian Clark and left to conquer Gotham City once again with the malevolent Alfred Pennyworth of Earth 3 (Fall of the Owls). The Crime Syndicate took over the world and "Arkham War" broke in for taking control over Gotham.

Wearing his very own Batsuit, Bane fought against Scarecrow's army of Arkhamites and enlists a Talon named William Cobb to help him rule Gotham. He is eventually defeated by Batman, who locked him up in Arkham and he escaped to team-up with Scarecrow but got along with Poison Ivy instead, who betrayed him. Killer Croc met him in the sewers to settle some old scores and during Joker's Endgame, he fought alongside the Bat-Family to save the city from falling into any further chaos.

One of the most dreaded foe that The Dark Knight has ever faced, Bane is most popular for his infamous act of "Breaking The Bat" in the Knightfall saga of DC Comics' New Earth continuity (also known as the "Post-Crisis" era). The idea of Bane's character was conceived by comic-book writer Chuck Dixon (Batgirl – Year One, Superman/Tarzan – Sons of the Jungle), Graham Nolan (Hawkworld, JLA Vs. Predator) and Doug Moench (Batman & Dracula – Red Rain, Batman Vs. Predator II – Bloodmatch).

Bane Takes Gotham

However, following the "Flashpoint" crossover event and in the wake of The New 52, Bane set foot on the new rebooted era through the second volume of the monthly ongoing Batman – The Dark Knight. Therefore the credit of his Prime Earth persona development goes to the writer/artist team of Paul Jenkins (Batman – Jekyll & Hyde, The Darkness/Pitt), Joe Harris and David Finch (Aphrodite IX, Brightest Day).

Batman – Detective Comics – Faces of Death
 | Comics
Gotham's most dangerous criminal The Joker is on the loose and Batman is currently after him for 114 confirmed kills. In an undisclosed location, a man wearing mask made out of human skin approaches Joker on someone's order but soon got his throat ripped by the clown before being stabbed to death. Upon tracking him down, Batman breaks-into that hideout only to set him running and leaving a bag of explosives to go off. Only a split-second away from going after Joker, Batman hears an eleven years old girl named Olivia Carr asking for help. The G.C.P.D. arrives too but instead of helping the girl, they get busy with Bats. It was not until Commissioner Gordon ordered his men to stop shooting at him as they were following Mayor Hady's order.

The Joker successfully lured a team of Gotham City Police officers into a trap and killing them all in a rigged explosion. He eventually got chased by Batman and have exchanged few blows before getting captured. He is left at Arkham Asylum in care of Dr. Jeremiah Arkham and shortly after everyone leaves him alone, The Dollmaker enters the room. It appears that getting caught by Batman was an elaborated plan by the psycho to get in here and he asked Dollmaker to carve up the skin off his face. Leaving his face skin pinned to the wall of Arkham, Joker leaves. Soon, a reporter named Charlotte Rivers persuades Bruce Wayne and they both end up in dating. Things would escalate when the psychotic serial-killer Dollmaker clears his obsession to have Batman as an extremely valuable collectible item.

In wake of The New 52, the second monthly ongoing volume of Detective Comics takes things straight high with Batman and The Joker. The plot was both written and drawn by Tony Daniel (Deathstroke – New 52, Justice League – New 52), who brings the same psychological thriller vibe into Detective Comics again. Events taken in this storyline, such as a confrontation of Batman with G.C.P.D. forces and Joker, carries some resemblance to Frank Miller's iconic The Dark Knight Returns book. Also, the opening splash-page of the first issue is an homage to another panel from All-Star Batman and Robin by artist Jim Lee (Batman – Hush, Superman – For Tomorrow). Collecting issues #01-07 from The New 52's Detective Comics monthly series, this storyline serves as a prologue for 2013's DC Comics crossover event "Death of the Family".
