Re: Bane vs Batman from BB and TDK
I think Batman during his peak would have beaten Bane or fought to a standstill. Bane's victory the first time they fought was heavily influenced by Bruce's physical and mental state of mind, in fact this is probably a big reason why Bane chooses to attack Gotham and Bruce when he does.
The Batman of yesteryear likely wouldn't have even gotten trapped in the sewer with Bane in the first place. He would not have trusted Selina Kyle so easily and likely not had the arrogance to think Bane would be no match for him.
This should be agony
I should be a mass of aching muscle
Broken, spent, unable to move
And were I an older man, I surely would
But I'm a man of thirty, of twenty again
The rain on my chest is a baptism
I'm born again
