COMICS: First Look At The New 52's BANE

Check out the DCnU version of Bane, who will debut in The Dark Knight #6. He pretty much retains his old look entirely, with a bit of Arkham City influence thrown in too..

Well it seems The Bat is going to be broken all over again if this image is anything to go by. The cover to David Finch's The Dark Knight #6 is a clear homage to the classic story-line "Knightfall", in which Bane snaps Batman's spine.

What do you think of this new look Bane? It's pretty much the old-look Bane in fairness. But I'm sure many of you are glad the New 52 didn't take much influence from Christopher Nolan's very different take on the character.

Of course they would say "The RISE of Bane"!
marvel72 - 2/16/2012, 2:13 PM
bane looks good there,shame the movie version doesn't.
JDUKE25 - 2/16/2012, 2:17 PM
Cool, but he's WAY too big. I liked this size the best.

PaulRom - 2/16/2012, 2:19 PM
Say what you will about what the movie version looks like, I'm glad that he'll be a villainous mastermind like the comic version.
May check this issue out, wasn't big on the first two issues but Bane's my favorite Bat-villain so I might read this.
SageMode - 2/16/2012, 2:25 PM
SMH, if it isn't broke, why fix it DC?
Mm mm mm
AraxisHT - 2/16/2012, 2:28 PM
He looks too much like a balloon.
dahamma - 2/16/2012, 2:29 PM
still look better than movie Nolan bane lol but yah he is kinda too big.
joeker - 2/16/2012, 2:30 PM
dissapointed, its just a cross between the old one & the arkham games & they are rushing it abit arnt they???? surely they should just give it a year before they bring a massive storyline like this about
Jimdlux - 2/16/2012, 2:33 PM
I see that the new 52s are not only lame, but they are re-hashing the old stories...
TheSoulEater - 2/16/2012, 2:34 PM
Thats not like the game at all.....

Tevii - 2/16/2012, 2:37 PM
Good to see Bane back in the comics. Glad they didnt change it to the Mortal Kombat wanna be crap that is in the Nolan film.
HavocPrime - 2/16/2012, 2:37 PM
Interesting, while I did like the Bane design in Arkham, I didn't think that DC would actually make it Banes official look
sahin86 - 2/16/2012, 2:39 PM
has bane transformed into the hulk or hwat?!
this looks ridiculous!
SuperSomething616 - 2/16/2012, 2:39 PM
@ TheSoulEater - My thoughts exactly...

And I saw this image months ago...how is this new news?
KaneVonDoom - 2/16/2012, 2:40 PM
@ TheSoulEater: Take a look at the pic you posted and then the cover in this article again...
JatevinM - 2/16/2012, 2:42 PM
Why is he so big? They should have taken note from the Young Justice show and The Dark Knight Rises.
Zordan - 2/16/2012, 2:43 PM
cant wait for bats to kick his ass in tdkr
Checkmate - 2/16/2012, 2:43 PM
He looked better in Secret Six.
PaulRom - 2/16/2012, 2:45 PM
In the first two issues of this series, both Two-Face and Joker were huge for some reason. Maybe it's the same situation with Bane (as well as the Arkham Asylum influence).
AsianVersionOfET - 2/16/2012, 2:46 PM
Too big. Can't wait for The Dark Knight rises.
Pontius888 - 2/16/2012, 2:47 PM
Arkham Asylum Bane..Awesome!!!
brewtownpsych - 2/16/2012, 2:48 PM
too big, looks ridiculous
AsianVersionOfET - 2/16/2012, 2:49 PM
This is ridiculous.
GRYDE - 2/16/2012, 2:49 PM
Does Batman and Bane "Get Off" posing in that position-or what? They can't seem to stop doing it. While it may be exciting to them, it's not for us. Can't DC find a new idea???
jimoakley666 - 2/16/2012, 2:51 PM
Ha ha ha ha. Looks like a big veiny bollock with a teeny tiny little pea head sticking out of it. Utter crap.
batmitedimension - 2/16/2012, 2:52 PM
The whole "Bane breaking the Bat on his knee" thing is losing its epicness due to the amount of times this scene has been recycled and redrawn. It was even done on a Secret Six cover! Keep it special DC.
95 - 2/16/2012, 2:53 PM
Arkham Asylum had the best Bane.

Followed (far behind) by Tom Hardy.

52 Bane is a little too much.

MovieMann - 2/16/2012, 2:56 PM
They definitely overdid it on the size.
Optimus83 - 2/16/2012, 3:01 PM
Coolest new Bane. ...like Arkham Asylum
rbfn04 - 2/16/2012, 3:01 PM
Another poor design for DCnU! Can we give up on that already. Go back to good ol DCU
RorMachine - 2/16/2012, 3:03 PM
Agreed, looks very silly. I can't believe there are those that would rather THAT up on the screen than Tom Hardy
hoodedjester - 2/16/2012, 3:04 PM
his face looks the grunts from halo
rbfn04 - 2/16/2012, 3:05 PM
@Ror I think people would rather see something a bit closer to the cover @JDUKE posted. At least make the mask less crappy
HelaGood - 2/16/2012, 3:07 PM
wow
AutobotCommander84 - 2/16/2012, 3:15 PM
It looks like Bane is trying to rape him.

It's too bad none of the people on here have read the New 52's Dark Knight. If you had, you'd know that the villian is using an alteration of Scarecrow's and Bane's venom, which is making many of Batman's baddies WAY BIGGER than normal. However, it's also wearing off quickly and causing them much damage mentally (probably due to Scarecrow's influence). Not a big deal, maybe, but it explains why he's so ridiculously huge on this cover. Haters shouldn't hate, once they come to an understanding of the truth. Now you have. - Honest Fan
antonio - 2/16/2012, 3:19 PM
Never liked the comics design and Bane is treated like a [frick]ing pussy in the Arkham games so its not surprise I'm not a big fan of this.
headlopper - 2/16/2012, 3:19 PM
This is just cross-promotional stuff. Trying to sell comics by pigging-backing on the the film.
headlopper - 2/16/2012, 3:21 PM
@Intrude- 'Batman Beyond' is real. I'll stand by that. Other than that, fire away...
