Add to the fact that he never had Venom, and aesthetically didn't resemble him at all, I can't find too many things to associate Nolan's Bane with the comics and animated version, other than "this is a strong guy".

This Bane is just as "accurate" as Ra's was in this series, which, isn't saying much of anything at all. Not to say you can't enjoy this version, but I don't see how you can say he's more accurate than Catwoman, Joker or Two-Face. Hell, even Batman is more accurate of a character, and Nolan deviated quite a bit with his characterization on that, too.
You can disagree all you want,he said that he was born in the darkness and seeing that if he could help Talia escape then he could most certainly do it himself.He was looking for Ra's acceptance to prove himself worthy.Is'nt that kinda his comics motivation? it's a twist but in essence is the same thing.

The original venom compound was created years before Bane made his debut,in Knightfall the only thing venom did was serve as a plot device that ensured Bane's defeat after Knightfall he swore himself off it.He did'nt need it when he broke Bruce's back,he did'nt need it when he killed Film Freak,did'nt need it when he broke classic Croc's arm and did'nt need it when he snapped someone's neck with one hand.TDKR version of venom did EXACTLY what the venom did,it served as a weakness that led to his defeat.
For the record the original venom (which appeared before Bane) made the user unable to feel pain

Who cares if he did'nt resemble him? especially when the costume was a million times better,cooler and more practical.Also Bane has worn a some what similar attire in Birds of Prey.

Harvey did'nt have a dual personality and he's only more accurate than Catwoman and Joker because unlike the other 2 you can find little references to the comics(or atleast moreso than them).But yeah as the other user correctly stated Joker,Catwoman and Gordon are indeed the most accurate characters out there overall.
