The villainous Bane breaks the Bat in one of the most popular and well-known Batman tales! The inmates of Arkham Asylum have broken free and Batman must push himself to the limits to re-apprehend the Joker, Poison Ivy, the Riddler, Killer Croc and more. Pushed to the limits, he comes face-to-face against the monstrosity known as Bane, who delivers a crippling blow destined to change the Caped Crusader forever!
Batman Knightfall deals primarily with the introduction of Bane, a powerful and well-educated man from prison out to take the Batman and take over Gotham. Bane breaks out all of the Arkham inmates, causing chaos among Gotham. Batman gets put to the test of his very being fighting and re-capturing all the inmates, while slowly being worn out for the big fight with Bane. Bane does his famous "back-breaker" and decommissions Bruce Wayne as Batman. This leaves Gotham at the mercy of Bane, in which the possible Bat-replacement Jean-Paul Valley takes over the reigns as the new Batman. He goes on a savage take-back of Gotham his own way, which finally makes it way to the battle of Jean-Paul and Bane.
