Born to serve the life sentence of his father, Bane’s childhood and early adult life were spent behind the walls of Pena Duro, a infamous prison located in Santa Prisca. He built up his body in the prison’s gymnasium, and started taking Venom to enhance his physical strength.
Years later Bane escaped Pena Duro, along with several accomplices. His ambitions turned to destroying Batman, whom he had heard tales of while serving his sentence. Bane was convinced that the demonic bat that haunted his dreams since childhood was a representation of the Batman.
Bane destroyed the walls of Arkham Asylum, allowing its deranged inmates to escape into Gotham City, where Batman spent three months rounding them up, running himself to exhaustion, and then returned to Wayne Manor, where Bane awaited him. The beast fought the Batman, defeated him, and broke Batman’s back, then threw him to the streets of Gotham.
Bane reigned supreme in Gotham until the new Batman (Azrael) took him down. Purging his body of Venom and rebuilding his physique to perfection, Bane escaped from Gotham. He soon forged a temporary alliance with Ra’s Al Ghul and was promised the hand of the Demon’s daughter, Talia. However, his failure to again defeat Batman when the Dark Knight began to interfere, made Ra’s al Ghul end their relationship. Once again left to his own devices, Bane waits patiently, planning his revenge against the Dark Knight.
