  • Superhuman Strength: Bane was an Olympic-level athlete with immense strength even without the aid of Venom. When the Venom was injected into his brain (from a dispenser usually mounted on his arm, and fed through tubes connected to his mask), he achieved superhuman strength and endurance (although not enough to defeat Superman). However, the Venom could be dangerous when used in excess. During their first encounter, Batman defeated Bane by triggering an overdose of the drug into Bane's head, stopping the flow before Bane literally burst.
  • Superhuman Durability: Bane was able to stand still briefly after he took beating from Superman [1]. Also his hands didn't break when he was beating him earlier.



  • Drug Addiction
    • Illness: Because of his addiction to Venom Bane In his old age needed constant infusions of Venom just to stay alive.
      • Restricted Mobility: In his old age Bane's constant use of Venom had degraded his body and transformed him into a wheelchair-bound invalid.
