Re: Could the Joker and Bane work together?
I like the idea of Bane keeping the Arkham inmates in Arkham and blowing the access to the Asylum. Then he throws Batman in there after breaking him, and the Pit scenes are Bruce surviving an Arkham Asylum-esque scenario with Joker and Scarecrow plus the inmates. His recovery can be something to fight for, since he'd need to find a safe place to barricade himself.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
