Personally, I would enjoy seeing this. If Secret Six wasn't canceled it would be a different story, but with that gone a new Bane would be cool. Has he appeared in the New 52 yet? If not, would you guys like to see a Nolan style Bane?

Bane has appeared, and he's the same comic book Bane he's been for years.

Maybe he should borrow cosmetic elements from Nolan's Bane, but he shouldn't be Nolan's Bane. Make another villain for that.

Bane has already appeared, he looks more like the Arkham Bane

I personally dont like it

Never! Nothing from Nolan should be in comics!

Yea the Nolanverse needs to be kept separate from comics. Don't get me wrong, Nolan's Batman was incredible!!

NO!

As cool as he was, I don't think Nolan Bane wouldn't translate well into the comics

#9 Posted by tjs4759 (42 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think he should be the exact same as Nolan's version, but I think it would be cool if you took some of his characteristics from his version. I really like Bane, top 3 favorite bat-villains, but I never really like the overly hulking depiction of him like he was in Arkham City.

I hope someone gets rid of this crap eventually

Bane was easily the weakest part of the arkham games when it comes to villains

Why would they make him long winded and boring and how to you make the text unreadable?

#12 Posted by JonSmith (3996 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't object to this Bane appearing in the comics.

#13 Posted by tjs4759 (42 posts) - - Show Bio

@Stormbox: Agreed. He is suppose to be physically superior to Batman, so why can't you just have him 6'6" 240-250 lbs. Keep the venom to enhanced his strength, but get rid of the stupid hulk looking thing. I always hated the idea that venom made him grow from 6'2" to near 7'.

@tjs4759: Worst part is that they made him almost as dumb as the batman and robin bane

The new 52 one isnt as bad but its still dumb

No.

...Hell no.

@Stormbox: Really? Didn't read it. Saw one promo shot of him and said PASS! I know a lot of ppl didn't like Nolan's Bane, I personally loved his depiction.

I'd like to see Bane look more cosmetically like Nolan's Bane.

But keep teh character the same.

And yet his depiction of the Joker,Catwoman and Bane has been miles better than the treatment they've been getting in the comics,yeah I'll take Nolan Bane( O'Neils Bane meets Simone's Bane with some of Dixon's Bane) any day over current Nu52 Bane,Arkham Bane or cartoon Bane.

To answer the OP's question,I would like if they incorporated some aspects such as the costume,make Bane more streamlined instead of bulky and his personality(which is the perfect combination of the best Bane writers).@Stormbox said:

Nah, this was a new version of venom which made him bigger, faster, stronger and allegedly smarter. I say allegedly because he made the claim but didn't do a whole lot to back it up. This version of Bane has the Pre-52 Bane physically outclassed but he lacks any technique. He's essentially a powerhouse now.

Not a carbon copy, but if they take certain characteristics from the movie for the character, i think it could work very well. It's at least better then just the powerhouse version we have right now.

I wasn't too big a fan of Nolan's Bane to be honest but at least he looks more like just a force to be reckoned with rather than some guy on roids. Bane just needs to stop OD'ing on that Venom. In the Arkham games he was supposedly 5'6 when off of the venom and 9'2 while on it! He also gains 200 pounds of muscle. It's like, lolwat?

So how did that, not split Batman in half this time? I have a very hard time believing, with all that juice in Bane that it would just simply break Batman's back...more like completely disintergrate his spine.

Tom Hardy's Bane was a brilliant tactician and leader.

as he should be in the comics right? its just the looks thats different

Nolan's Bane was very much like when he first appeared. Tactical, brutal, shameful. In the new 52, he is a mindless monster, a gimmick reduced to guest as a secondary character. So yeah, I would prefer to have his version than the one we have now.

#37 Posted by FatihBATMAN (1389 posts) - - Show Bio

when did bane guest in new 52 ?

#38 Posted by neale7 (124 posts) - - Show Bio

comics and animated series bane never hulked up to like 7 foot. He was also a brill tactician and leader in knightfall. It's only over the past few years that he's gone stupidly hulk from venom. He's always been about 6'6 and menacing, venom just made him stronger and a tiny bit bigger. Arkham games, the batman and then Batman:the brave and the bold had bane as some 5'6 guy who goes hulk through venom. Don't know why because it's stupid. As for the cross over of nolan's bane into the comics, the only thing that would really be crossing over is the appearance. If he went back to his true form, there's nothing really to cross over.

i definitely think aspects from Nolan's Bane would be a nice addition to his character, but for the most part he needs to be who he is from the comics. Someone said it, not everything from the movies should be put in the comics, unless they are incredibly popular which is curious as to how the hell was the Catwoman origin now the one from the Burton or Halle Berry movies. I think this giant bulk brooding pile of muscle doesnt stay. I love the Arkham games but Bane was overdramatically used and I think the comics would serve better with a more practical Bane. Mix it with TDKR (at least a little bit) and Knightfall and Secret Six

No, only Nolan could write someone like him correctly

#42 Posted by DustinFun1704 (209 posts) - - Show Bio

No. I believe Hardy's Bane worked for the Nolan universe, but he would feel out of place in the New 52. They can re-imagine him, but if they go Nolan's route he would be a completely different character, and they would also have to change Talia's back story.

#43 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1527 posts) - - Show Bio

i wouldn't mind maybe a mixture of old and movie versions but the movie version would be too easy for other heroes to deal with and therefore not the imposing.

#44 Posted by neale7 (124 posts) - - Show Bio

@DustinFun1704: They wouldn't have to tweak Talia's back story that much. Bane was once Ubu, Ra's right hand man for a short while.

#46 Posted by TheCannon (18727 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he has already appeared in the New 52. Could be wrong though.

If he has, then I think it's too late.

If he hasn't, then YES! Bane in TDKR is the greatest villain in cinematic history. Putting him in comics = Epic win.

He should be a mix. I miss an inteligent and lethal Bane. Most writers just portray him as some muscle head on steroids. Who only relies on his venom

a good mix, is good enough.. hehe
