Re: Bane... The new Darth Vader?
Yeah, I think Bane is a great character that pays homage to Vader in a lot of ways, but obviously Vader is in an entire league in his own when it comes to being a cinematic icon.
Although I do think Bane, even in the comics is very iconic in the pantheon of Batman villains, even if it's mainly for one iconic moment. Seeing that moment immortalized on film was nice. Bane will always be known as the man who broke the Bat, and that's nothing to sneeze at. The film didn't create that, but it sure as hell honored it and brought it to the wider mainstream.
