Default Re: Does Bane being a PURELY physical threat hamper him as a villain?

There is no deeper conflict going on than the standard comic book fare. Yes Bane wants to protect Talia, but we are never given a reason why he believes in the League's ideology so much or why he would have a personal vendetta against Gotham/Bruce Wayne

What? Them offering him a purpose and a life beyond the darkness he lived in "until he was a man" wasn't enough for you?

In what regards Bane's plans: if you can suspend your disbelief when it comes to some of Joker's extraordinarily convoluted plans, then I can't see why you can't do the same for Bane's.
