Closest animated version of Knightfall
11 August 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Bruce Timm and Paul Dini view Bane as a Gimmick character. Only appearing 4 episodes, one in each series he's present in, Bane comes at us in this episode.

One might think this will be a true adaptation of his famous comic he appeared but not exactly. A few things that are similar is, he is super intelligent, super strong, defeats Killer Croc, tells Batman to scream his name and does the iconic pose where he is about to break the Batman.

The differences are as followed, he is an assassin for hire (Bane), he is hire by Rupert Thorne, has a love affair with Thorne's Secretary, beaten by Batman and finally but most crushing of all no breaking our heroes back.

This episode did do a lot of the right things but it seems Dini and Timm just decided to make an episode to shoe us Batman is superhuman. I mean Batman is almost beaten to death. He can hardly move but then magically he's raring to go. Robin isn't very well done in this episode but he does have a cool moment where he fights Bane.

Overall this episode isn't great but in fairness it does a lot of things right. So I'll give this episode an 8 out of 10.

Also I swear it sounds like Bane calls Batman "Bateman".
