Synopsis for "A Serious House"

Arkham Asylum. The cell of Bane.

Bane is locked in his cage, with a machine absorbing Venom from his blood. He hears the guards whispering about clowns, and he also hears the city rumbling. First the guards get doubled, than they disappear. He knows who's coming to visit: the Joker himself. The clown steps inside the cage, asking Bane how much pain he's feeling thanks to the Venom-absorbing machine. Then, the Joker puts Bane's mask on his head and starts explaining why he had to meet him: he's deeply in anger with him.

Outside, many people say Bane is one of Batman's big baddies, putting him on the same level of the Joker himself. How could they? Bane was smart and cunning, he planned how to conquer the city and did it, gave it to the criminals and the madmen in Gotham. He couldn't be there for the show. Then he waited, with Batman exiled from his home, to deliver the final strike. And in the end, he killed the butler. But he did it in front of Robin! So stupid, and such a waste! The only paternal figure remaining to the Bat, wasted to send little poor Robin in therapy. He had the opportunity to make the strike of his life, to become Batman's greatest baddie of all time: he just had to kill the butler in front of Batman himself!

But he wasted the chance. And the Joker, he's going to make him pay for that. Not now, as he has a war to win, but soon. Bane will have to stay alert. As the Joker leaves, Bane hears the whispers again. The guards are afraid, but not of him anymore. They are afraid of him. A part of Bane wants to scream, but he stays quiet, and he awaits.
