Bane (DC Comics) - Wikipedia
Bane was just a jacked-up puppet, acting on orders from — and out of love for — Miranda Tate Marion Cotillarda. The whiplash turn brought the saga full circle, and rightly brought the larger-than-life lout down to human-scale size — but too much so. And his death — he was blasted by Catwoman with a projectile from the Batpod — felt anti-climactic. Bane deserved to be more interesting than he turned out to be.
Did you wonder during the movie if Bane was going to be revealed to be someone we knew? I bet Bane could do a wicked funny Goldfinger impression. No, Mister Wayne, I expect you to die! Let the haters eat crow. Rises certainly strummed those chords. Some tried to frame the Batman vs. The revelation that he was aligned with the League of Shadows — self-appointed judges of civilization, who believe it is their duty to raze unworthy societies — rendered him more fundamentalist-terrorist than revolutionary.
They had no faith in Gotham to change for the better, and refused to give Gothamites the freedom to fumble toward it. Off with their heads!
Even Bruce wanted that guy dead. There he read Gordon's planned confession, and undermined the validity of the Dent act as well as of Dent's heroic persona in front of the citizens of Gotham. Bane then ordered his men to storm the prison and "liberate" the prisoners, who were incarcerated under the "corrupt" laws of Gotham's elite.
Bane declared martial law and proclaimed that the city now belonged to the people, handing them the power of "justice" over the "corrupt" Gotham elite that had "enslaved" them.
Bane's speech subsequently caused a series of riots led by Gotham's criminals and revolutionary working class members, who raided the homes of the wealthy and set-up a court presided by "Judge" Jonathan Cranewhere the rich were sentenced to choose between either death or exile through the crossing of a deadly frozen river. Bane himself continued to await the bomb's detonation while he observed Gotham's self-destruction. A few months into the occupation, Special Forces lead by Captain Jones infiltrated the city to gather intel on fighting back against Bane, even learning of the bombs true nature.

Batman's Return "I broke you How have you come back? After Batman's return to Gotham City became apparent, he had some mercenaries stay close to Miranda at Gotham City Hallanticipating that Batman would eventually come to rescue her.
Soon after, his mercenaries entered a massive battle with the recently freed Gotham City Police and Bane himself fought Batman once more. However, this time Batman fought more patiently and based on his knowledge of Bane's weakness he struck Bane's mask repeatedly and damaged it and caused Bane agonizing pain. A stunned Bane attempted to futilely repair the mask, but was unable to do so while Batman continued his attacks. An enraged and frustrated Bane was then put into a mindless fury as he attempted to quickly finish off Batman with a brutal barrage of punches.
His attacks became stronger and faster, but also desperate and less coordinated. Batman remained focused as ever and managed to defeat him in combat. During Batman's interrogation of Bane regarding the location of the trigger to the bomb, Bane went unspeaking as Miranda stabbed Batman and revealed herself in the lobby of city hall as Talia. She explained her and Bane's past as Bane shed a couple of tears while she fixed his mask.
A recovered Bane held a rope around Batman's neck while Talia taunted Batman. Due to her trigger's signal being blocked by Gordon, she left Bane to guard Batman so that Batman would survive long enough to see the bomb go off while she commanded the truck containing the nuclear time bomb.
Alone with Batman, Bane stated that both he and Batman knew what had to happen. Bane ignored Talia's command and decided to kill Batman himself with a shotgun. Abilities Bane is shown to be a capable close range fighter in the Pit before being trained by the League of Shadows.
During his fights with Batman, his abilities honed over the years are shown. He uses his brute strength and ferocity to gain an advantage over his opponents. He can snap necks and crush windpipes with ease. He can think and act quickly in the moment for whatever the situation may require.
Bane also has a mask that administers anesthetic gas through tubes into his body which holds the pain from physical injury at bay. However, the mask is also a weakness if it's damaged as the pain is unleashed.

Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy… So simple… And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls.
Goyer said"I first brought up Bane, I think Chris was initially horrified. And I said, 'Hold on, hold on, hold on. This will be the Nolan version of Bane. Somebody who's been physically distorted. I think Chris liked that. Nolan also said"We wanted more of the Darth Vader, if you like, and that was very important in the story dynamics. Bane represents the wrong path of Bruce Wayne almost back to 'Batman Begins. The wrong side for Bruce Wayne.
In The Dark Knight Rises, a type of anesthetic relieves him of any pain and is directly administered into Bane's airways through his mask. Tom Hardy has described Bane as "brutal".
It's not about fighting.
The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it's nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action. The prologue voice was mostly changed in the later theatrical cut of the full film.
A controversy regarding the character ensued nearing the release of the film where several political pundits, including conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh, believed that Bane was intended to reference Bain Capital, the name of the company Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney formerly ran.

Christopher Nolan called the comments "bizarre", and Bane's conservative co-creator Charles Dixon pointed out that Bane's character in the film was closer to Occupy Wall Street. Tom Hardy based Bane's voice on that of an Irish traveler; though many have compared his voice to that of famed actor Sean Connery. Trivia Bane's costume for the film is markedly different from his comic book counterpart who wears a Mexican wrestler's mask. In the film, his mask does not cover his full face, but rather his mouth, jaw, and his back head, with his eyes and brows clearly exposed.
