HistoryEditIn The Batman, Bane appears as a hitman and professional mercenary voiced by Joaquim de Almeida, "Traction" and Ron Perlman "Team Penguin". In this rendition, he is even more monstrous in size and strength, and injures Batman in the first encounter. To defeat him, Batman uses the Bat-Bot, a prototype robot and even then, only barely managed to win with the Bat-Bot severely damaged.
Bane's Power Infusion Module (The equipment that delivers his Venom) is a system of tubes which stretch around his body, activated by a dial on his hand. Due to his fantastic strength when using the device and his high intelligence, Bane is one of the Batman's most dangerous foes. However, the steroid venom and his tubing system is perhaps a weakness, since on several occasions he is defeated when they are electrocuted. In the episode "Traction", Batman rams an exposed electrical wire into Bane's Venom applier.After the resulting electrocution, Bane collapses under the strain. In "Team Penguin", Batman's electrocution of his tubes causes a chain reaction which shocks him senseless. He later gets an invitation to join Team Penguin, but is taken down by Batman and Robin before considering the offer.
This is also the largest and strongest version of Bane, being over twice as tall and wide as a normal person (although he has very small legs).
