Re: Bane or the Joker?
Bane told Bruce in the pit that his revolution was all false hope to poison their souls. So all of his fancy talk was hooey.
Saying he's Gotham's reckoning is just him saying he's finishing Ra's work who already deemed Gotham beyond hope and must die. Trouble is Ra's did that when Gotham was actually in bad shape.
