Biography of Bane
(5 Of 8) Severe Punishment
Bane destroyed the walls of Arkham Asylum, allowing deranged inmates such as the Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, Scarecrow, Mad Hatter, the Ventriloquist, Poison Ivy, and Victor Zsasz to escape into Gotham City. This forced Batman to recapture the escapees, a mission that takes him 3 months and pushed him to his limits. Bane prepared his attack for when Batman reached his highest point of exhaustion.
(6 Of 8) Breaking The Bat
After running himself to exhaustion, Batman returns to Wayne Manor where he finds Bane waiting for him. Bane attacks Batman, toying with him at first. Bane delivers the final blow by raising Batman up and throwing him down upon his knee, breaking his back and leaving him a paraplegic. Bane thus becomes the only man to have "Broken the Bat".
