Well, just because he's going to Santa Prisca, that doesn't mean Bane will automatically be there.

Calling it "the home of Bane!" is just a way to draw readers in.

Although I'm not saying it's impossible.

That was my first thought, but Bane hasn't lived in Santa Prisca for a long time, and "home" suggests he lives there now.

I really like Talon, this sounds cool. Ive been picking it up every month.

I think it could be mentioning Bane's name for nostalgia as IV said. While you may be right in the aspect that it should imply that is where Bane lives, it is more for the flare that Bane was birthed there to give an idea of how extreme the prison is.

I think this is just for readers to get the book.

Bane and his pockets, beating up Talon, seemed to have disappeared....and I had a whole set-up ready to go based on the ensuing conversation ....
