Its interesting that Ras, Joker, and Bane are all sort of Satanic archenemy figures. Ras Al Ghul means "The Demon's Head" and he functions much like Satan did in the Old Testament, as an "Accuser," arguing that Gotham is "beyond saving." The Joker is obviously a man who enjoys causing chaos and tempting others to evil (the ferries, "hit me," Harvey Dent). Bane is mentioned as being "born and raised in hell on earth," calls himself "a necessary evil," and mirrors Ras in a lot of ways. Nolan really seems to draw on this imagery to present compelling villains without going overboard with it.
