Bat-Bane was one of the Three Ghosts of Batman, an impostor of Batman manufactured by Hugo Strange.

Branca was a policeman who killed his own family while driven by rage from the drugs that Doctor Hurt had put into him.

Batman discovered that a pimp had been supplying the ex-policeman who lived in an abandoned facility with prostitutes. The women eventually turned up dead. Batman tracked him down and was severely beaten by the man, who was dressed in a mixture of Batman's and Bane's costumes. Batman suspected the imposter had used Hugo Strange's Monster Serum and daily venom shots to gain his size and strength. This made him strong enough to lift the Batmobile over his head during his battle with Batman and Robin.
