I may not agree with everything Tom King is doing with his Batman run, but I can’t deny how well he’s writing Bane. He’s giving the villain a healthy dose of creepiness and dread. Think about it. Bane scared Batman so bad he had to hide the Robins in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude just by sending a message. Now he kidnaps 4 allies of the Bat and just stands there with a flare, but you can’t mistake the meaning behind it.
