Re: Does Bane being a PURELY physical threat hamper him as a villain?
Bane wasn't a purely physical threat.
He had a plan mapped out the same as Ra's Al Ghul did.
How well or poorly thought out you think his plans were, they did exist, in detail.
Luring Batman and the cops into the sewers, using Daggett for the construction projects planting explosives in the sewers, using Catwoman to steal Bruce's fingerprints, the decoy trucks, etc.
So he did challenge Batman both physically and strategically.
He's a silent guardian...a watchful protector...a Dark Schloss...
