Aware that a direct assault on Batman would be foolish, Bane destroyed the walls of Arkham Asylum — allowing its deranged inmates (including the Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, the Scarecrow, the Mad Hatter, the Ventriloquist, Firefly, Poison Ivy, Cornelius Stirk, Film Freak and Victor Zsasz) to escape into Gotham City. Consequently, Batman was forced to recapture the escapees, a mission that took him three months. Exhausted, Batman returned to his home in the Batcave then went up to Wayne Manor as Bruce Wayne, where he found Bane waiting for him. Bane attacked Bruce, first in Wayne Manor but then the two tumbled down into the Batcave below, where Bane continued his assault on Bruce Wayne, toying with him throughout. Bane delivered the final blow by raising Bruce up and throwing him down upon his knee, breaking his back and he left him a paraplegic. Bane thus becomes the only man to have “Broken the Bat”
