Bane is a genius?

I don't read comic books, but my understanding was that he was just the super-villain equivalent of a steroid junkie in the comics.


Check out the DC comics wiki, Bane is incredibly smart and deadly and just an all around Badass (yes I know wiki info isn't the best but it works from time to time).

I'm pretty sure 'Tom Hardy in a gimp mask' is going to be very close to the comic version.

Sorta... but he is about as smart as batman. He invented/engineered the stuff that makes him bane.

Among other things, he speaks a LOT of languages too. :p

EDIT: Along the same lines... Frankenstein in the books was also a super genius, and taught HIMSELF not only his first language but many many more.

Great book, at least 50 times better than dracula.

Just a friendly PSA


Frankenstein or Frankenstein's monster?

What little time I've spent reading about comic book villains, every bad guy who isn't purely meant to be dumb muscle is hand-waved to be a genius. So that they can be inserted into any leadership or chessmaster position that the writers feel like.

So yeah, he's probably smart, but it's not like his intelligence is what's throwing you across the room and into a cement wall.

I can name several Batman villians that do not have genius level intellect.

Bane is a genius and a tactical mastermind.

It's just what invented the stuff that makes him able to do it. Six of one if you ask me. If he was dumb, he'd still weigh a buck ten soaking wet.
