Re: Does Bane being a PURELY physical threat hamper him as a villain?
It's all comparable to me. Sending most of the cops underground...rigging an entire hospital to blow when it's open 24/7.
It has nothing to do with Joker being a less logical character, it's just that the films have been playing by their own rules when it comes to the vulnerability of Gotham, in all 3.
Bane was shown to be precise and methodical, and very much behaved like a military commander. If you're saying his characterization was great Makaveli...well that was his characterization. So what are you getting at then?
