Possible Opponents[]


Bane was reportedly born and raised in Peña Duro, a prison in the Caribbean Republic of Santa Prisca that is home to the most dangerous convicts. Bane came to regard Peña Duro as his home, a place where he learned "the truth about despair" as he developed extraordinary skills through improving himself in mind and body within the prison's walls. After ultimately establishing himself as the "king" of Peña Duro, Bane was made a test subject for Venom, an steroid created to replicate the Miraclo drug. After escaping Peña Duro, and being the only one who knows how to manufacture Venom so he can dull the pain from the experiments done to him, Bane became a professional assassin with ties to the criminal underground.

Death Battle Info (Fanon)[]

  • Real Name: Unknown
  • Gender: Male
  • Affiliations: formerly League of Assassins, Suicide Squad, Secret Society of Super-Villains, Secret Six
  • Occupation: Professional criminal
  • Height: 6'8"
  • Weight: 350 lbs. (159 kg)


  • Venom Usage:
    • Superhuman Strength (2-3 tons)
    • Peak Human Durability
    • Peak Human Speed
    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Peak Human Reflexes
    • Accelerated Healing Factor


  • Peak Human Conditioning: Bane possesses strength that borders superhuman strength, and that is without the Venom. He has shown the ability to lift Batman over his head with ease and punch two holes in a column in front of Blackgate.
    • Martial Arts: Bane possessed great skills as a combatant, able to defeat multiple opponents simultaneously.
    • Pain Resistance: Due to constant use of pain suppressors, Bane can withstand severe physical traumas, being able to shrug off attacks from Batman, punch through sheets of steel, and take multiple bullets to the back and arms without flinching. In the official database in the DC Comics, Bane is one of the only villains in the DC Universe who is immune to Joker Venom.
    • Can detect stealthy opponents via his experience living in a dark prison.
  • When he introduces a large enough supply of Venom in his system, Bane achieves superhuman strength and endurance, bullet-Proof skin that renders him immune to ballistics, and regenerative healing. His estimated strength varies on the canon and the amount of venom he injects; with his limits varying from 2 to 15 tons.
  • TITAN is shown to have a far greater effect on Bane than normal, capable of growing him to full size and replenishing his energy in a matter of seconds after several months of Venom withdrawal leaving him frail and weak. However, TITAN has been shown to take a small toll on his intelligence, although he has been able to remain in a conscious state of mind due to his affinity to Venom.
  • TN-1 is a prototype version of TITAN used in Batman: Arkham Origins, shown to be able to transform Bane into a massive behemoth of muscle almost twice his original size. The serum is able to make him potentially invincible given the serum takes full effect, but it also has a severe drawback to Bane's mind. The dosage left him amnesiac and caused his mental state to degrade into that of a mindless monster. Bane does not need his harness to use TN-1, because a single injection was enough to trigger the transformation.
  • Indomitable Will: Bane's willpower and absolute belief in his goal are what make him such a dangerous opponent.
  • Intimidation: Bane mastered art of instilling fear in others and himself is resistant against Batman's deceptive maneuvers.
  • Master Strategist and Tactical Analysis
  • Despite rarely using them, Bane possesses a degree of skill with firearms.
  • Photographic Memory
  • Multilingualism
  • Leadership: Bane is a highly influential man, and his men follow him without question. He speaks with great reasoning and strikes fear into his enemies, as well as his own followers.

  • Losing streak against Batman.
  • Bane's Venom has several flaws.
    • While needing to use Venom because of the painful withdrawal symptoms, Bane could suffer an overdose.
    • The tubes that connects the Venom to his body can be ripped out easily, disabling his super strength. Batman has consistently exploited this weakness. When the tubes are removed or cut by force, and the Venom spews out of Bane, Bane's body will temporarily become thin and weak. The effects of Venom can fade away in seconds if not maintained [2].
    • Venom does permanent damage to the body [3].
    • Absorbing too much venom at once can overload Bane's body. [4]
  • Can be prone to depression because of his addiction to Venom
  • At full power; Bane's massive size makes him significantly slower than Batman. He also tends to be clumsy.
  • Bane sometimes brags during a fight.
  • Bane is not bulletproof if his venom levels are low. [5] [6]
    • At full power he is bulletproof; but is still not indestructible. [7] Batman has defeated Bane with his human-level physique multiple times. [8]
  • Rarely uses long ranged weapons or guns.
  • Despite being one of Batman's most powerful characters; Bane is significantly weaker than other '"heavyweights" of DC; like Mammoth [9] or Superman [10].
  • According to Scarecrow, he has Carcerophobia (Fear of Imprisonment)
  • Bane is a proud warrior and prefers to fight his foes up close (One of Batman's few foes who fights in a fair game)
