Or reasons why he made them both train by Ra's? Bruce survived 8yrs without Batman but Bane could'nt without his mask? Lindy hemming said something like Bane wears armour because he damaged his back but Bruce also gets his back damaged and is able to recover (maybe nolan didnt want that said in the film cause it might be too on the nose?) I think it was good that they didn't make Bane afraid of bats thats why he goes for Batman, I like the LOS reasons better!
- Rachel runs out for his mom and Alfred to help Bruce in Batman Begins; Talia escapes the Pit and finds her father to wreak havoc in the Pit and in the midst of it, Ra's saves Bane. Also, Ra's finds Bruce as well in a prison, much as how he found Bane in a prison(the Pit).
- Bruce and Bane are trained by Ra's al Ghul, and both left the LoS but under very much different circumstances.
- Bane breaks Batman and leaves him in the Pit to suffer but Bruce heals up from his pain and escapes; Bane is left to suffer through pain all of his life and never truly escaped the Pit himself since he was saved. Bruce was saved as well when he was young, but he made the climb up to the Pit himself.
