A common misconception, amongst so called comic fans no less, is that Bane is some ridiculously jacked brainless Latino oaf that fully relies on Venom. Let's look at all the ways this is ungodly wrong.
1. Bane was originally drawn as simply a realistically muscled person even when on Venom. Muscled, yes, but not ungodly muscled to the point where he looks like something that Liefeld would puke up. The overly muscled depiction from things such as Arkham City and other media is painful to look at, and not AT ALL what the character is supposed to look like. The BDSM Bane came from Batman and Robin, and by saying Bane should be that way, you're saying he should be like he was in Batman and Robin!!!
2. Bane is not dependent on Venom. Since Secret Six, Bane has stopped using Venom due to its addictive properties. Even before, Bane could easily fight Batman without using Venom.
3. Bane is white in the comics! His father, King Snake, is a blonde haired, blue eyed British Anglo Saxon Caucasian! His mother, while never shown, is supposedly a South American native. Despite this, Bane is always colored as white in the comics! On top of that, many mixed people with dark skinned parents come out with white skin and Caucasoid features. For instance, all three of Michael Jackson's children look Caucasian with seemingly no Negroid features!
The fact that Bane in TDKR is seemingly a tactical mastermind who unleashes an army against Batman sounds EXACTLY like Knightfall. Some idiotic so called fans, I tell you....
