About Bane

When Bane was born, his mother gave birth to him in a prison before she died and Bane was forced to serve his father’s sentence after his father ran away. Since he had to grow up in this prison as young child, he had to learn how to protect himself and he did things that would keep him safe. Bane also became the test subject for a drug called Venom which increased his strength tremendously. While he could have just relied on his physical strength alone, he chose to also build his mental strength which causes him to be on of the smarter Batman villains. Rumors had also circulated in the prison about a monster called Batman and because Bane had repeated dreams of a bat figure, he believed Batman was the figure in his nightmare and he made it his mission to defeat him.
