Plus, nothing against Tom Hardy when I say this and I really think he did a great job as Bane but Heath's performance was something else altogether IMO. It is one of my favorite performances of all time.
A few things -
Joker only pushed Batman emotionally and mentally, so it wasn't ALL of Batman's limits, but I get your point. But still, isn't that in Knightfall as well? Bane beats down a worn out Batman? It's staying true to the backstory of Bane having the upper end with a weakened Batman.
And...Bane wasn't some lackey, lol.
