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

Considering the hardships he must've endured living down there all of his life and the ideals of the LoS established in BB, is it really that hard to believe he bought in to their objectives of bringing justice through balance (namely through setting examples by destroying decadent societies)?

As for his hate for Bruce, consider this. In Bane's eyes, Bruce Wayne is probably this rich dude who had everything and was accepted into the League, offered the chance to lead them against Gotham, but refused that chance on a whim. To Bane, who had to save the daughter of the LoS leader by getting mutilated and who lived all his life down a hellhole before even being offered the chance to join the League, Bruce's refusal must've looked like the biggest insult ever. Considering the fact that Bane seems to be this cocky and proud man, it's not that far of a stretch to assume his ego had something to do with the latter line of thinking.
It's lame because it's a damn stupid reason to believe in a bunch of things as strong as that just cos someone saved your ass. Ya don't know who Bane is or why he was in that pit. All ya know about Bane's past is he was in there for all his life and he liked Talia as a kid.

Why does he want justice, and hate rich people and all the other bull the LOS were babbling in this? Ya never find out.

At least with Ra's ya know why he thinks that way. Ya know based on Joker's scar stories why he has this crazy view about everyone being able to break like he did and go crazy.

Ya had to make up a bunch of conjecture ya never see or hear in the flick to try and justify why he hates Bruce. The movie shoulda given ya some of that instead of you making up fan fiction.
