I honestly feel like Hardy's Bane was on par with the Joker for what he was, which in several ways was the exact opposite of a villain (for me the only thing missing from the character was a proper exit, though I get the arguments for that). It's also without a doubt the best version of Bane that's been done in any medium and as great as Ledger's Joker was I don't think you could make the same assertion with him.


You do not fear death.
You think this makes you strong. It makes you weak.
How can you move faster than possible,
fight longer than possible,
without the most powerful impulse of the spirit:
The fear of death.
