Which bnngs me to my point, I was listening to Kevin Smiths smodcast with Scott Mosier, and Mosier bought up the argument that was the time spent showing Bane aquire Pavel, then getting him to set in motion the bomb aswell as the whole Miranda deception to get the whereabouts of the generator, really that necessary? If you think about it couldn't it of just been Banes got hold of some kind of chemical bomb, etc, and not have to have it being Bruces project gone wrong, etc. It just seemed interesting to me that time seems to have been a factor a lot with the story and by cutting down this idea could have saved quite a large portion of time, and granted would of changed the story, but would it of changed it for that much worse?
Anyways theres my two cents, I guess it's time for me to start feeling stupid now......
Why is this board intimidating ?
The idea of Los using a tool that Bruce created to help the citizens of Gotham , that ends up being a weapon of mass destruction that brings terror to the city , fits with the personal vendetta they had against him.
Also from a practical point of view , i suppose nuclear bombs are kinda hard to attain and transport. Having the possibility to have one in the center of the city they wanted to terrorize , torture and destroy...its almost too good to let it go
