You have been with me always. You know what I must do. Quote2.png

Quote1.png I was done. All of this. All of you people. The insanity. The fighting. The death. The Venom. I was done. All I needed was the Pirate. Just a little help from the Pirate for the pain. I could've come to Gotham. To take him. But I did not. I was done. Instead, at great expense, I arranged for Professor Strange to deliver him to me. Is it my fault that Strange could not accomplish this task without violence? How can I control Strange while trying to remain peaceful?! But regardless, I had the Pirate. I had peace. I was done. And the Batman came to my island, to my prison! The building where my mother died, where I raised myself from nothing! I was done, and he came. And he broke my back! And he stole my peace! I was done! Quote2.png

--Bane (Prime Earth)
