Quote1 Bane knows from growing up in prison that the toughest doesn't always win. Neither does the smartest. But if the toughest is also the smartest... he's unbeatable. Quote2

Bane was a brilliant world-class fighter and tactical genius who augments his great physical strength with a steroid called venom.


  • 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 Stamina
