Re: Question Regarding Batman's First Fight With Bane
The best way I can explain it, Rusty, is that Bruce didn't want to walk away from his fight with Bane. Or perhaps felt he had nothing to lose, given his exchange with Alfred in the Batcave and Alfred's fears that Bruce wanted to fail.
After the Joker, it does seem careless, I give you that. Bruce made that same mistake with the clown.
