Bane is a brilliant world-class fighter and tactical genius who augments his great physical strength with a steroid called venom. Raised from childhood in the Peña Duro prison on Santa Prisca, he was determined that he would destroy Batman to prove himself, and succeeded by breaking the hero's back during Knightfall. Since then he has been an international crimelord, an anti-hero, a mercenary, a government agent and even a dictator. His father is the legendary martial artist King Snake. He has been a member of the Secret Six, the Suicide Squad and the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Bane was created by Dennis O'Neil, Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan, first appearing in Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1. (1993) ||
