Alright, I'll try to be as clear as possible with this. Bane is often said to be a brilliant tactician. I don't really get that, because when he beat Batman during the Knightfall it was basically wait for him to get worn down and then jump him. If that's the mark of a genius, then I suppose we can start handing out PhD's to gang bangers that go around and do the exact same thing. "Alright guys! You jumped an honest hardworking man when he was tired from a hard day of work!"
What I don't understand however, is this; If Bane on venom was too much of a coward/too smart to fight Batman head on, then how come without venom he's considered an equal match and their fights end in draws? Despite having nowhere near the training, martial arts level etc, and no longer having enhanced strength from Venom?
