Bane / Blackfire

#1 Posted by awol89 (6 posts) - - Show Bio

So I'm still pretty new to Batman and its possible I've missed the point completely but I'll just put this out there...

Acc to the Knightfall Saga Bane is the first supervillain who 'broke' the Batman, literally and otherwise. But didn't Deacon Blackfire already do that in The Cult? Years ago?

Hoping someone can answer this, it's driving me crazy...

Didn't Deacon brainwash him? Bane broke his back.

That's my point. Blackfire broke him mentally and Batman was powerless to fight back. Bane did more physical damage (although there was a strong psychological element too.)

Well, Bane did more damage. The Cult was a short and long forgotten story. Knightfall was pretty much burned into Batman's history since it had a lasting effect.

Well, Bane has the edge anyway, as he at least temporarily broke him mentally and physically, which is what he set out to do at the start.
