Synopsis:
Batman confronted Bane. Bane beat him like a rag-doll - throwing him, crashing him through walls. The beating continued down the stairs and into the cave below Wayne Manor. When Batman refused to beg for mercy, Bane lifted him up and crashed him down across his knee. Alfred went to get Tim.
