Bane, a villain slightly less iconic than the Joker or Penguin, but nevertheless a key enemy in the comic book series.
Bane was raised in a prison as retribution for his fathers crimes and killed his first man at eight years of age.
His brains match his brawn. Like all good comic-book villains, Bane was the victim of chemical testing, primarily a steroid called Venom which made him super-strong.
