    This is an odd choice for a title Batman Vs Bane as Bane doesn t fight Batman in the book nor does Batman really figure as a character in either of the stories The first is the origin story of Bane, Vengeance of Bane , which shows how he came to become imprisoned in a barbaric prison as a child in a grim South American country because of his father s crimes, and how he became Bane This is a reprint from 1992 as most will realise when you see the art, but it still holds up as a fine story and features Bane s journey to Gotham and his first meeting with Batman just words, no fisticuffs yet and is a good place to start before picking up the Knightfall Trilogy which has the infamous scene of Batman having his back broken by Bane Bane of the Demon is the second story a reprint from 2007 08 with Bane searching for his father s identity and stumbling upon a League of Assassins mission and meeting Talia Al Ghul She introduces him to her father, Ra s, and Bane gets to know these two characters, falls for Talia, and joins them on a mission to exterminate billions of the world s populace While this is a great story as well, it s of a prologue to a larger story as the reader never ...

    This is a collection of Batman Vengeance of Bane 1 and Batman Bane of the Demon 1 4.I would recommend this collection to anyone who were dissatisfied with the many inconsistencies with the Bane storyline in the recent movie,The Dark Knight Rises If you wondered why a prison with no guards and a wall that any free climber would consider a beginner s course and totally ignore making pointless jumps and the rope hanging down the wall would be able to keep anybody a prisoner,how Bane could eat or drink, or how his mask controlled his pain, this book gives a better choice.Not only is Bane s origin a little plausible, it also explains how he could so easily withstand ard gloves yes Batman has built in brass knuckles or punch chunks out of a stone column.The collection also offers a reasonable connection between Bane and Ra s Al Ghul.All around the comic book version of Bane, Ra s Al Ghul , and Thalia are better.Not only do they make sense, they are menacing.Truthfully, both B...

    The book is called Batman Versus Bane, but Batman appears on maybe three pages and never fights Bane.

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.There s not really much to say about this reprinting The cover is rather dull looking and bland, I wouldn t have given it a second glance in a store The collection is called Batman Versus Bane , but it really had next to nothing to do with Batman, save for a few pages that seemed only necessary for Bane s character development The story was alright, but was left flat in the misleading title I giv...

    Batman Versus Bane is actually two Churck Dixon story lines, set before after Knightfall First is Batman Vengence of Bane, which is a moody, well crafted origin story for Bane It is able to make you a little bit frightened of Bane Then Batman Bane of The Demon is the fight you never knew you wanted bu...

    This fills in the gaps for Bane s story from the original Knightfall event, plus it has an interesting story connecting Bane to the al Ghuls.

    This oddly titled trade collects Batman Vengeance of Bane and Batman Bane of the Demon 1 4 It also has three two page origin summaries taken from various other comics Advance warning Batman Versus Bane does not feature much of the Dark Knight, nor does it have than a fleeting moment of the two titular characters fighting Roughly the first third contain Vengeance of Bane, Bane s first appearance and origin This is a personal favorite of mine and nicely builds Bane as a layered character and a serious threat It is, however, in large part a prelude to Knightfall So despite being a complete story Bane s origin you will be missing the larger tale as well as the advertised confrontation of this trade if you do not continue on to the Knightfall trades.The second story here suffers even from the above weakness Bane of the Demon features Bane s quest to find information about his father, whose crimes doomed Bane from birth He also faces off with another of Batman s greatest foes This was ok, but I found Bane a bit out of character, nothing is really resolved and it reads exactly like what it is a lead in to the stories Legacy and Contagion One other note this trade DOES N...

    Part of my disappointment with this is the almost total absence of Batman The title of this mini collection is completely misleading the only time Batman and Bane are in the same panel is the brief confrontation at the end of Vengeance of Bane, which leads into the Knightfall saga Even the Vengeance of Bane story is a misleading title, since we re not sure upon whom or what Bane is taking vengeance, or why he is taking it out on Batman other than his desire to own Gotham which never seems like a worthwhile goal for any of these villains I did enjoy the 4 part Bane meets Ra s storyline, for the most part it does get a bit too saucy for no good reason at times Spending time with the villains, getting to know them and their drives, isn t always a good idea, but this mini series presents the other side of the Bat universe in an interesting way, especially as it unites two of The Detective s most dangerous nemeses The alliance of Talia and Bane adds a very interesting twist to the layers of these characters, though it didn t seem to go very far as far as I know, what with all the relaunches and whatnot I was hoping this collection would have Vengeance of Bane 2, giving this collection a sense of a finish as it stands, it s like an introduction volume in a rather deceptive package If you are a Bane fan,...

    Batman is in about twelve panels of this entire book, but putting his giant mug on the cover probably helps sales This is actually a collection of Bane s origin story, and of the miniseries of his fallout after failing in Knight s End Bane is the South American mercenary, raised from birth in a brutal prison, who suffered night terrors of being swarmed by bat demons When he broke free, he hunted Batman both out of conquest for Gotham and for catharsis from his lifetime of trauma.I hadn t read these original Bane stories in almost twenty years The verdict I absolutely see what an angry teenage boy loved about it.It s a power fantasy, full of dark horror being overcome by force of will and extremely muscly arms The biggest storyline here sees him tangled with Talia Al Ghul and R as Al Ghul, who play his ...
