Greetings, Mortals!

Today I welcome this day by opening another Pandora Box of the DCnU. What you are about to see may produce some shocks into your system as a revelation is done in the newest issue of Batman : The Dark Knight.

Batman and Bane duke it out with the latter gaining the upper hand as well as mocking the caped crusader with breaking Gotham City`s city spine as he did once with Batman, thus making a reference to Knightfall. Bane, enjoying his victory, decides to make a revelation.

* Looks confused, takes a huge drink of lemonade, washes eyes and re-reads those 2 pages *

Ok, I am gonna try not to make a huge deal out of this but....really, DC Comics? Am I to believe that Bane was just a dumb muscle that suddenly got smart by taking this new Venom? The guy is supposed to be a Genius Bruiser on par with Batman, for Pete`s sake!

When I was much younger I used to believe that Venom was the DC version of the Super Soldier Serum, that it was not only a way to enhance physical skills but to improve one`s intelligence. Further readings proved me wrong and made me respect Bane more since he was keeping his genius intelligence even when using Venom while Batman was reduced to a hulking addict (but since he is Batman, he beat that addiction). It is Bane`s harmony of lethal force and genius intelligence what has always appealed to me and it should not come as a surprise that I did not enjoy how the media portrays him as a hulking henchman. I am not going to lose faith yet on the DCnu but I think they should think deeper the way they are gonna develop their ideas.

Then again, maybe this new Venom has made him Super-Smarter. We will know for sure on issue 7.

Yeah, I took it to mean that he was even smarter than before.

And while I can see why some people might not like this portrayal, I don't think it's completely out of left field--yes, Bane is smart, deadly intelligent, but one of his biggest tools is an addictive steroid, and it is something that can make most people lose their rationality if they use it long enough.
