Re: Bane's place in the rogues gallery post-Rises
Bane was still regarded as a top notch villain before Nolan. Definitely not C- as you say at lowest B- to C+. He was one of my fav villains before Nolan and while I liked the way he was betrayed I prefer Bane on Venom it makes him more interesting. So no comics should not follow Nolans version of Bane. Joker, Riddler, Two Face, Freeze and then Bane.
