An underground prison named Pena Duro, in Santa Prisca, a concealed prison in a small nation in the Caribbean. A small boy resides in his cell serving the life sentence of his dead father. Amidst the chaos, agents of an unknown organization came in and picked the boy up, leading him to a research facility. That boy was tortured endlessly until he reached adulthood, testing a steroid that drastically increased one’s strength. Nobody bothered to learn his name. His name is Bane. And he is the one who cracked the Bat. I mean literally In the Nolan Verse the story, Bane was member of the league of shadows, established and headed by Ras al Ghul.
Initially intended as a dark mirror of the extremely scrupulous and skilled pulp hero Doc Savage, Bane’s childhood is spent in the hellish prison of Pena Duro on the South American island nation of Santa Prisca. He cultivates super strength over a forced experiment involving a drug Venom. Although his reliance on Venom is a huge weakness, Bane is regarded as one of Batman's most intelligent and physically powerful foes. He is well-known for snapping Batman's back in the "Knightfall" story arc.
Although Bane is first and foremost a villain, but he is a complex personality and has operated to tackle down drug lords. Despite the history with Batman, he had occasionally had Batman's financial backing and direct assistance in a few occasions. Bane has been adapted various other media versions of Batman, which includes Batman: The Animated Series, its sequels and spin-offs as well .Its successor, The Batman. Pro-wrestler Jeep Swenson portrayed his role in the 1997 film Batman & the Robin. He made a comeback to the silver screen in The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, portrayed by Tom Hardy, which has been inclined from the Knight-fall Story Arc. In many editions; he is more crude and thug-like than his comic book equivalent.
Bane without Venom
Bane’s power and physique is when in its peak, slightly greater to the likes of Batman or other superhero characters as well as villains.
Physical Strength: Even in shorn of Venom, Bane is portrayed to still be tougher than Batman, able to lift/press roughly 1,500 lbs. Without the Venom, Bane has accomplished breaking Killer Croc‘s bones and standing toe-to-toe with other superheroes as well. He has also executed feats such as cracking steel cables that were used to manacle him, and denting and bending an iron gate after beating it off of its hinges.
Speed: Even with his heavily muscled appearance, Bane is portrayed to be an unexpectedly fast runner, as he’s been portrayed to be able to sustain with the more slim member of the Secret Six nonchalantly.
Durability: Even deprived of the Venom drug, Bane has been phenomenally durable. Instances include shrugging off bullets to the shoulder and further areas, and enduring the torture of having many bricks thrown at all parts of his body.
Bane with Venom
Bane exploits the super-steroid known as the Venom to heighten his own physical attributes to staggering levels, namely his power, endurance, durability, and speed.
Superhuman Strength: The major effect of the Venom drug is that it boosts his strength from low to staggeringly high like superhuman levels provisional on how much of venom is injected into him. At the extreme boundary of healthy amount he can inject into himself, he is able to lift almost 3-4 tons
Enhanced Speed/Reflexes: His speed and reflexes are also heightened with Venom, making him able to move, run, and react beyond the limits of the best of the human athletes.
Superhuman Endurance/ Durability: With the usage of Venom, his endurance and stamina is significantly enhanced. His durability is amplified sufficiently to shrug off most blunted force trauma, yet he is not totally bulletproof. He can endure blows from most superhuman; survive falls from heights, and possibly more.
Superhuman Healing: He also used the Venom as a sort of medicine that could heal him from most of the poisons, injuries, infections, wound, and disease.
