Ed and Ron go EEEEVIL with Producer Bill and his villain GOAT: Bane! A 90s gimmick with a surprisingly ground-breaking spin on Batman's rogues.

We journey back to the Knightfall saga to examine how the comics world first encountered the spine-snapper in a luchador mask. Then, Bill lays out the foundational allegory behind Batman, and how The Joker may be Bruce Wayne's crack'd mirror, but Bane is something far deeper and more disturbing. All that, plus Ed calls Bane the Clubber Lang of Batman villains, and he's spot-on!
