Recap: The Adventures of Batman & Robin E10 "Bane"
aka: The Adventures Of Batman And Robin Bane
Rupert Thorne hires Bane to take out Batman.


  • Body Horror: Bane's defeat. After Batman breaks Bane's venom pump mechanism, his muscles begin to get enormously pumped while he screams in agony. It keeps going for quite a while until Batman severs the pump from Bane's head.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Batman reveals to Rupert Thorne that his aide, Candice, was planning to kill him by playing a recording of her discussing it with Bane. Thorne isn't happy, and Candice never appears after that episode...
  • Large Ham: Bane: "I must... BREAK YOU!!!"
  • Make It Look Like an Accident: Rupert Thorne's moll, Candice, suggests that this might be a way of getting rid of her employer/lover.
    Candice: With Batman out of the way, Gotham could be yours. So could I.
    Bane: What about your employer?
    Candice: Accidents do happen.
  • Not His Sled: Bane lifts the worn and tired Batman overhead and breaks his back over his knee! No, wait, that was Knightfall.
  • Phlebotinum Overdose: When Batman defeated Bane, he broke the Venom pump, giving Bane a massive dose. Bane's eyes looked ready to pop out of his head before Bats managed to pull the line out.
  • The Worf Effect: Killer Croc is trashed by Bane offscreen just so we know how tough the new guy is.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Bane trashes the Batmobile, with bare hands.
  • Wrestler in All of Us:
