If you saw Christopher Nolan’s latest – and final – Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, you may have wondered about Bane, the film’s villain. Here are 4 things you may not know about him:
- He was created in the 1990s for DC.
- In the Comics, He Wears a Luchador-Style Mask.
- In the Comic Knightfall, Bane executes a Backbreaker on Batman so devastating that he breaks Batman’s Back.
- In Batman: The Animated Series, Bane is shockingly similar to Alberto Del Rio, only 10 years before.
