Here are our favorite Bane Quotes

I am not a joke. I am not a riddle! I am not a bird or a cat or a penguin! I’m not a scarecrow or a plant or a puppet! I am not your broken friend! I am not your regretful teacher! I am not a child’s fairy tale! I am not a circus act here to amuse and frighten you! I am not another one of your madmen howling at the moon! And I… I am not… I am not some rich boy playing dress-up! I AM BANE!

This is my absolute favorite quote from Bane. This shows that Bane is not the brainless foe that everybody thought he would be. He doesn’t consider himself as just another enemy of Batman. He is not like everybody else, he considers himself special.

I am necessary evil

“I am necessary evil” is a phrase that can be said about almost every human being who exists on this planet, because obviously there are always some humans who do not satisfy their basic needs for basic survival. The phrase is uttered with alacrity and enthusiasm by those who wish to engage in destructive activity, particularly when that activity is occurring in the service of some other human desire or goal.

You merely adopted the dark, I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you because they belong to me.

This is great writing right there. This quote has become a instant classic when everybody first heard it in The Dark Knight Rises. But also became iconic because of Tom Hardy’s voice. I have been trying to find a way to describe it but there are just no words or sounds for it. But I love that he uses more or less the same voice in Peaky Blinders as Alfie Solomons.

I am Bane and I could kill you… but death would only end your agony and silence your shame. Instead, I will simply… BREAK YOU!

What makes Bane tick? Is it his unnatural luck, or the twisted sense of enjoyment he gets from crushing people beneath his boot? It could be the total darkness inside of him… or perhaps it is merely that he can never be truly satisfied with what he has. This quote comes out of Batman Vol 1 #497. Actually he could have killed Batman but instead he broke his back.

Peace has cost you your strength. Victory has defeated you.

You expect conflict. You get conflict. You hope for victory, and you get defeat. You try to be strong, but you become weak. You think you can keep pushing through, but in the end you collapse. Sooner or later, the villain wins: your hope is crushed, but you won’t admit it; and you tear down what’s left of your achievements in an attempt to make yourself feel better.

Some Other Bane Quotes:

Speak of the devil and he shall appear.

Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated.

We come here not as conquerors but as liberators, to return control of this city to the people.

No one cared who I was ‘til I put on the mask.

As I terrorize Gotham I will feed its people hope to poison their souls.

So you came back to die with your city?

The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure.

You will watch as I torture an entire city to cause you pain you thought you could never feel again. Then, when you have truly understood the depths of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s Al Ghul’s destiny. We will destroy Gotham. And when it is done…when Gotham is ashes…then you have my permission to die.
