Re: Bane vs Batman from BB and TDK
Many have already discussed the points in this thread but yeah Batman in BB would've certainly won over Bane, but of course only going lots of rounds that would make Rocky vs. Apollo seem like a mickey mouse fight.
Self-contained stories part of a larger story is where its at. Not this writing for the trade nonsense. If you're going to write for the trade, don't release it in individual issues. Just release the trade.
