Batman manages to take down most of his major foes in quick order before they can cause too much damage (some of the more obscure ones don't get captured, and Two-Face doesn't even make an appearance in the first arc, publication-speaking-wise), but doing so takes a huge toll. After SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Scarecrow push him to his limits, Batman returns home to ''finally'' rest his weary body. When he arrives, he finds Alfred lying on the floor -- and Bane standing over him. Thanks to Batman's exhausted physical state, Bane wipes the floor with Bruce in a mostly-one-sided fight that ends when Batman is lifted into the air by Bane, who then uses his knee and a healthy dose of downward momentum to ''break Batman's spine.''

* GoodScarsBadScars: When Shondra is treating Bruce for his "[[CutMyselfShaving car crash injuries]]", she notes than the wounds aren't consistent with a crash. She also notes that "playboy" Bruce has many old scars from stabbing, gunshots, and so on. He asks offhandedly what she thinks he is instead of the IdleRich. She replies, "A warrior."

** Batman also assumes that one or more of Arkham's escapees are key to Bane's plans, which is part of the reason why Batman's focus is on the other villains instead of Bane himself. Batman spends his time fruitlessly trying to find an ulterior motive to Bane's attack on Arkham.


Added DiffLines:

** Az-Bats does NOT react well to the Joker turning round and walking away from him.
