    I would have expected DC to use the current movie design for Bane.

    Oh, my God. Tell me that Reed Richards quote is somehow real.

    That's basically what they did, with an extra splash of lameness.

    He needs a redesign stat. The giant air tank on his back is just goofy. He looks like a cancer patient who took too much prednisone.

    The movie design was better anyway. I'm just hoping that we see extremely intelligent, cunning, master planner Bane and not dumb muscle head Bane. Why is it so hard for so many writers to understand that he's supposed to be a genius, its mind boggling?

    I always like the idea that he beat his Venom addiction, but still wore the tanks out of habit. I forget which writer came up with that idea. Also, plenty of geniuses have has substance abuse problems. In TDKR, they at least did an interesting variation on it (he needs anesthetic in order to even function because of a beating that he took in the past).

    I'm talking about the current movie not "Batman and Robin".

    If memory serves, he was off the Venom by his first post-Knightfall appearance. He even made a point of it when he met Batman again in Vengeance of Bane #2. So probably Chuck Dixon?

    This interpretation seems to be taking something from the cult leader aspects of The Dark Knight Rises. Bane inspired loyalty from his followers in the original comics, but he also repaid it (up to a point). He wasn't going around snapping their necks and asking them to be grateful for it.
