Re: Why did the League of Shadows want to destroy a peaceful city?
The main issue I have even with my concession is that why wouldn't Bane just run his own operation? He was a skilled fighter who could easily have formed his own radical organization, what does rejoining the LoS actually mean to him? A big F-U to the old man as it were? Why would he want to take over for an organization that didn't want him? You could make the argument that the LoS isn't actually in this film at all and when Bane says 'I am the LoS' he's referring to himself alone as the last member, but then again why does he care about Ra's destiny? When you lay it all on the table like that it just doesn't hold water for me.
Fanboys make excuses, real fans acknowledge screw-ups.
