I am Bane—and I could kill you... but death would only end your agony—and silence your shame. Instead, I will simply... BREAK YOU!
~ Bane's most famous quote before breaking Batman's back.
You will know my name one day. And on that day you will beg for mercy. You will scream my name! SCREAM IT!
~ Bane
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?! I am not a joke. I am not a riddle! I am not a bird or a cator a penguin! I'm not a scarecrow or a plant or a puppet! I am not your broken friend! I am not your regretful teacher! I am not a child's fairy tale! I am not a circus act here to amuse and frighten you! I am not another of your madmen howling at the moon! And I... I am not... I am not some rich boy playing dress-up! I am BANE!
~ Bane

Bane is a supervillain in the DC comics and a major villain in the Batman series.

He is a recurring nemesis of the superhero Batman, known for being augmented by a drug called Venom. He is mostly known as the supervillain who "broke that bat", as Bane once managed to break Batman's back. Bane continues to be one of Batman's most physically and psychologically formidable foes, to the point that he essentially becomes the caped crusader's archenemy and the primary antagonist during the DC Rebirth line of comics.

He was created by Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan.
