Bane is one of Batman’s deadliest enemies. While the Joker represents the chaos to Batman’s order, Ra’s Al Ghul matches Batman’s tactical mind, or the Riddler can match his intelligence, it’s Bane that can stand toe to toe both in mind and body with the Dark Knight. He’s a master tactician while also being physically bigger, stronger and faster than Batman. This is how he was able to be one of the only villains to break Batman both mentally and physically in Knightfall.
Ever since Batman: Rebirth #21 in June 2016, Bane has been behind the scenes to try and break the Bat again. This July, in Batman #75, his plans will be revealed in the “City of Bane” arc by Tom King and Tony S. Daniel.
