Batman vs Bane

Article by Gregg Katzman

Batman #20 – by Tom King, David Finch, Danny Miki, Trevor Scott, and Jordie Bellaire – is the final chapter of the I Am Bane story arc. It’s a seriously vicious conclusion between the Dark Knight and Bane. No gadgets, no elaborate plans… just a brutal brawl between Bruce Wayne and Bane! Who’s left standing and how did they win the battle? Where will it go from there? To celebrate the action-packed issue, I thought it would be fun to reflect on some of their best battles in the comics! For simplicity’s sake, I stuck to encounters between them in the primary DC universe.

“Do you need Spider-Man in Venom’s first movie?” I’m guessing 9 out of 10 comic book fans will quickly answer “yes” to that question. After all, Spidey plays a huge role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom (read Amazing Spider-Man #300), and then the wall-crawler continues to play a big part in Venom’s story. The frightening foe’s a twisted reflection of the friendly hero and the two have had their fair share of memorable stories over the years. Like it or not, they’re strongly connected. That said, can you rework Venom’s story to not include Spider-Man? Yes, it’s definitely possible. Should you, though? Well, that all depends on what they’re bringing to the table, doesn’t it?
