How does Bane eat?!?

#1 Posted by jkloog (17 posts) - - Show Bio

If he can't take the mask off...how does he eat?!? He is a rather large dude for not getting his protein.

#2 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (20443 posts) - - Show Bio

He probably takes his mask off really quickly, eats one bite, and puts his mask back on while gasping for air. Very difficult procedure but I think it's possible.

He gets shot with a painkiller takes it off, eats, then when the effect goes off he puts it back

I have a more important question, how the heck does he make out? he can't carry a painkiller all the time

He doesn't eat. the Venom probably keeps him alive.

#5 Posted by The_Tree (7941 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe they feed him through a tube.

#6 Posted by CrimsonCake (2682 posts) - - Show Bio

There's probably a deleted scene that shows him eating.

#7 Edited by KingofMadCows (345 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Bane has a special room that's filled with the painkiller gas where he can take his mask off like how Mr. Freeze has refrigerated rooms where he can take his cryosuit off.

He gets nutrients pumped into his arteries.

this is the plausible solution.

#12 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (20443 posts) - - Show Bio

Also I'm pretty sure the mask helps him breathe, not just put away the pain.

#13 Posted by RedQueen (1171 posts) - - Show Bio

Very carefully.

With a straw? Direct injection to his stomach? *shrugs*

Do you know what Venom is?

#15 Posted by InnerVenom123 (29510 posts) - - Show Bio

You could ask the same thing of Darth Vader.

In the end, you will always come to the same answer:

It doesn't f**king matter, stop being a nitpick and enjoy the goddamn movie.

Movie Bane isn't on Venom. It's morphine. So that theory doesn't really apply

When was that stated?

Not like venom was ever stated, so I'm not defending that thought.

But just curious.

@InnerVenom123: i know it doesn't matter. I'm not being picky I'm just thought it was funny and wanted to see what people would make up :P

Pretty sure it was the scene in the pit with the two old men explaining his origin. That or.it was during the flashback scene when Miranda revealed herself as Talia.

I do, but he doesn't use Venom.

#23 Posted by Jnr6Lil (7830 posts) - - Show Bio

@AweSam: Yes, Bane in the comics uses Venom, and the OP never stated which Bane.

#24 Posted by _Marco_Smith_ (1609 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jnr6Lil: I think it's a pretty safe bet that OP meant the movie version.

#25 Posted by Jnr6Lil (7830 posts) - - Show Bio

@_Marco_Smith_: Bane in the comics wears a mask also.

#26 Edited by _Marco_Smith_ (1609 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jnr6Lil: He can take it off.

#27 Edited by Jnr6Lil (7830 posts) - - Show Bio

@_Marco_Smith_: Yes but it's said Venom increases his healing capabilities meaning he will have no need to eat.

#28 Posted by _Marco_Smith_ (1609 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jnr6Lil: Okay, but he can still take it off and suffer no ill effects, unlike the movie version. It's probably directed toward the movie version because him taking his mask off is an actual problem and would conflict with his need to eat.

#29 Posted by Jnr6Lil (7830 posts) - - Show Bio

@_Marco_Smith_: True, but let's say he never ate while with his mask on in the comics due to Venom, and when he finally took off the mask, he lost all that energy, but you're probably right.

#32 Posted by JonSmith (4010 posts) - - Show Bio

@Mercy_: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! No no no... Why... I've tried so HARD to avoid spoilers until I could see the movie... I tried! I didn't expect to be attacked without warning ! I was expecting a surprise, unshielded and unwarned assault! Why have you done this to me?! Your name is a lie, Mercy, you have NONE! NONE!

NONE!

... But seriously, I'm sad now.

On topic, more likely than not he is either fed intravenously, or he eats like anyone else who needs an oxygen mask: Take a bite, take a breath. Take a bite, take a breath, etc. Or perhaps he just takes off the mask and toughs it out til he's done, then puts it back on.

#35 Posted by Joygirl (19951 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the mask is not for breathing. It's for pain. When asked what would happen if it was removed, he didn't say "I wouldn't be able to breathe", he said "it would be extremely painful". And even his little tubies knocked out of place f"d him up. So painkillers.

i think he is being nourished by a needle, comic bane can eat like normal humans but i think he dont need to eat or drink when he use venom

#43 Posted by EpicBucketHead (1 posts) - - Show Bio

@jkloog: Maybe he has like a latch on the mask and like @yourneighborhoodcomicgeek said he opens the latch takes a bite quickly and puts the latch down. It could be possible!

Wasn't specifically stated as morphine, it was stated to be a pain killer.

Bane can't take of the mask lol, then he gets in true pain and hard breathing mode. I am pretty sure he feeds himself with the venom tubes. He must be really tired of soap atm.
