  • Bane was to serve his father's life sentence in the prison Peña Duro in Santa Prisca. In prison, he gathered a great amount of knowledge and became a body builder. With the harsh treatment of prison, he learned to protect himself from other prison mates. During prison, he had a teddy bear called Osito who was his only friend. Behind the bear's head was a knife so Bane could use it anytime he felt threatened. Bane was now the king of the prison, manipulating through his strength and intellect. The prison guards took note of this, and decided he should be the subject of an experiment where scientists would inject inmates with a drug called Venom. It had killed all other subjects. Bane undertook this experiment in which it nearly killed him, but he survived and he discovered that his strength increased greatly. He must take it every 12 hours though, as it causes side-effects if he doesn't.

    He soon escaped Peña Duro along with a few friends. Bane had heard stories of the Batman during his imprisonment. Batmans' valor and history led Bane to Gotham to destroy the great Batman. Bane, being very smart, decided to weaken Batman first. He punched through the walls of Arkham Asylum allowing many criminals to go free. Batman spent three grueling months catching the escaped criminals and he was physically and mentally exhausted. One night Batman returned to the Batcave to find Bane waiting for him. Bane used his great intellect and "talents" to deduce the location of the Batcave. Banes plan to weaken Bats before their initial confrontation and his deduction of the Batcaves location proved Bane is more than just a physical threat, he posed a greater mental threat also. Their battle in the Batcave was epic and the storyline " Knightfall" (Banes first arc) is a classic. Bane broke Batmans back proving that breaking the great Batman is actually possible.
