Yeah your argument makes no sense mon ami. Greatest student means greatest student. There's no double meaning.
Yeah that's why the Doc said he couldn't go skiing. If he is not fit to ski then do ya think he's fit to be fighting big muscle men terrorists?
Yeah I can see him struggling. He's pounding on Bane and he's not getting anywhere. He even roars in frustration twice during the fight. He was whupped.
Legs. Both legs. Doc said there was no cartilage in them.
What TDK series?
But he still lost.
Yeah cos it was so easy to get at that weakness wasn't it. Not.
Batman never went to any of those extremes cos he doesn't kill people. When did ya see him needing to choke someone to death or put his fist through concrete or break out of handcuffs? If he had to you can bet he could have done any of that.
Ehhhh no. Being 8 years younger, fresh out of the LOS training school, and with no screwed up injured body, he's have had a much easier time on Bane than he did in Rises. Easily.
It's not. TDK was only a few months after Begins. I told ya before, if he can take down Ra's on the train in a fair fight, and he's like the master trainer of the LOS, then what is Bane gonna do? Yeah get whupped like he did at the end of Rises. He knew he was whupped because he was gonna shoot a tied up Batman with a gun like the coward he is.
The proof is right there,Bane was much older than Talia who's roughly about the same age as Bruce.If Bruce was in his late 30's then Bane was in his mid 50's
There you go making everything seem so simple,here let me rephrase it"Bane was hitting on his daughter and Ra's loathed him for it" how about that scene where Ra's lowers his head? Ra's disapproved of Bane right from the start,for reasons only known to him and apart from Bane there was'nt a single non fodder member of the League in this particular incarnation.
In the land of the blind even the one eyed man is king.
Who cares what the doc said? he clotheslined Bane's goon from a moving motorcycle,punched through anothers helmet,how he destroyed all those mercs twice before fighting Bane.
He's struggling against someone who he's never faced before,you keep using Bane as an example to show Batman's weakness? seriously.Where exactly before in this series did Bruce actually defeat a fighter of Bane's caliber? he lost to Ra's(the only other noteworthy fighter).This argument is meaningless,you're using Bane as a measuring stick against Bane himself.
The Dark Knight series by David Finch
He lost because he was on the receiving end of an explosion that levelled the building,and he was without venom.But still dominated most of the fight.
Seemed pretty easy to me.
Bruce never displayed that level of strength period and neither did anyone else,pretty sure he was screaming when forced to pull Ra's with one hand,Bane lifted Batman from his throat with one hand and walked around.
That explains why he got his a$$ kicked by Ra's,a guy much older than him.
