I am Bane and I could kill you... but death would only end your agony and silence your shame. Instead, I will simply...BREAK YOU!
~ Bane upon breaking Batman's back.


Bane is a world-class fighter and tactical genius who enhances his great physical strength with a steroid called Venom, making him one of Batman's greatest and most dangerous enemies. In addition to being one of the only men ever to independently figure out Batman's secret identity, he has also been an anti-hero, a government agent, a mercenary and a dictator.
