Re: Bane vs Batman from BB and TDK
Unlike most here, I think it would've been a pretty close fight. Batman, while on the top of his game, would still be pushed because none of his theatrics would work on Bane. In TDKR, part of his failure is due to his death-wish, the other due to his poor-judgement about how strong he and his opponent were. In Batman Begins I'm gonna say the fight would be closer because he's still discovering himself, he makes mistakes.
The Dark Knight was him at his prime, and that's where he'd have his greatest advantage. He'd still have to be smarter and more calculating about the fight, though.
