ckal - 4/28/2014, 10:29 AM

SageMode - It's just the coat. Marvel changes the way the character looks completely.

what a [frick] up that the last chapter of forever evil is now 2 months late. i gave up on this shit after that
ChuckV - 4/28/2014, 10:38 AM
OMG- this is where comics are headed???? There's NOTHING shown in that preview that would make me want to spend money to pick it up.

[frick] yes! I'm so glad they're making Bane more like Nolan's! I've always wanted them to do this, so I couldn't be more happier! I just hope they end up giving him the mask too!

Vegeta - 4/28/2014, 10:43 AM
Give him the mask DC!

What If Juggernaut Became Batman??
grif - 4/28/2014, 10:44 AM
he guy whos head gets crushed by bane is [frick]ing hilarious.

Yeah I'm not usually one to complain about late books, things happen, but you can't have your flagship event/story that is the center-piece of the entire universe 2 months late.
How come companies can't draw and write their main event early on? That way you can have tie-ins that aren't garbage and overall universe cohesion.
DanteSparda - 4/28/2014, 11:11 AM
But Bane has never been "forever evil", he was a cool dude for a time.
AC1 - 4/28/2014, 11:15 AM
So Bane's wearing the exact same costume he wore in The Dark Knight Rises except for the gloves and mask. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

I'd like it if they redesigned Bane to have a look reminiscent of Tom Hardy's version mixed with his classic look, but I don't want to see them just copy it outright. Comics and movies are meant to be different.

I always thought TDKR version of Bane was crappy. It's not as bad as Batman & Robin's, but they at least got the mask somewhat right in that one.
BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 11:55 AM
NOLAN'S Bane was pure butchery of the real Bane!
BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 11:56 AM

LMFAO!!! Brilliant !
DarthDan - 4/28/2014, 12:01 PM
And Gusto wins again
BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 12:09 PM
Nolan made 2 good Batman movies & then pulled a Schumacher! Dark knight rises was a dumpster fire stench of a movie!

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/28/2014, 12:19 PM
Bane rocking TDKR coat.
duncboy - 4/28/2014, 12:32 PM
I'll probably get flamed for this, but I'd love to see them completely adopt the TDKR version of Bane in the comics, coat, mask and all. Otherwise, looking forward to this - I really ended up liking most of Forever Evil.
KeefNCookies - 4/28/2014, 12:36 PM
TDKR IM3 and SM3 are all terrible. I have no interest in watching them ever again.
BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 12:48 PM
not a nolanite ! said BB & TDK were good not great!

@alpha your the biggest nolanite on this thread!

smell - 4/28/2014, 12:52 PM
Tbh I find it fun to read in Tom hardy's voice
BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 12:53 PM

I agree they did do sandman right!
ChiliConCarney - 4/28/2014, 1:31 PM
Yeah, wasn't happy at all with the things they did in TDKR. Robin... Bane... Hines Ward lived...

Gusto - 4/28/2014, 1:44 PM
LMFAO...Hines Ward lived!!!!!!
KnobGoblin - 4/28/2014, 2:05 PM
Bane was a B-lister at best before Nolan used him. He was a 90's leftover that floundered around after he served his purpose in Knightfall, and by the looks of this crap, DC still doesn't know what to do with the character. The Dark Knight Rises was the best thing that anyone has done with Bane in any story-telling medium.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/28/2014, 2:17 PM
Exact same look as bane from nolans film except for mask and gloves.
JoJo1982 - 4/28/2014, 2:29 PM
They gave Bane his outfit from DKR

Actually looks pretty damn good, his other outfit was pretty outdated anyways

Just leave the mask only though
MizeatWizad52 - 4/28/2014, 2:57 PM
@ChiliConCarney: Agreed!! Hines Ward should bit it. What can I say, I am a biased Ravens Fan! R-A-V-E-N-S RAVENS!!!

On another note, Screw the Nolan Bane!!! Long Live Arkham Orgins (Pre-Venom)Bane!!!
ChiliConCarney - 4/28/2014, 3:13 PM
@ mizeatwizard

Well, the worst part of the Ravens died so... They're ok. Like the Bengals.

MizeatWizad52 - 4/28/2014, 3:37 PM
Yeah, I've gotten that a lot from my 1st even. But it goes without saying, the squeelers are the worst! I'm sure someone will chime in with their "6 rings in 81 years" argument.
sinthegreat - 4/28/2014, 7:35 PM
How dare you @Boomtubeb speak about Christopher Nolan the greatest film maker ever!
sinthegreat - 4/28/2014, 10:34 PM
The dark knight rises was clearly a rip off of dark knight returns. Bane was meant to be the mutant leader but being as he wasn't a big enough villi an they just copy and pasted bane in his place.
