    Timm and Dini did the first Bane adaptation, his most noable in the DCAU
    Timm and Dini fricking hated the character and deliberately made him look like a wuss out of spite after being coerced into using him

      someone needed to sit Bruce Timm, 70's kid who also loves pulp that he is, that Bane is just evil Doc Savage. The Shadow vs Doc Savage. Maybe then he'd have given Bane a fairer shake.
      They didn't even bother to reference his unmasked comic look.

      It's a bit misleading to simply say "they hated him." To get the appeal of Bane you NEED to read Vengeance of Bane, and they really hadn't. What they knew was that DC had done an "event" where a brand new villain showed up out of nowhere and kicked Batman's ass, and they were being asked to put the villain in the show. They resented being forced to use a character who they felt hadn't earned a BTAS slot, and they thought the whole comics event itself was forced.
      Feelings about him mellowed with time as it became apparent that he wasn't just a shitty meatpuncher like Doomsday, without an inch of depth.

        Didn't Dini still write him as a meatheaded tard in the Arkham series?

          He was the "oh shit" worst-case-scenario villain in Over the Edge, written by Dini, which I'd argue was a considerable improvement in how he was written. Not an out-and-out genius, but also not the brute enforcer that Candice wrapped around her little finger.

        I think on visual alone Timm wouldn't give him the time of day because he likes the grotesques and oddballs.

        I will say in all fairness, with how videogames worked(especially at the time), I get the feeling it was a case where the designs of the characters/ bosses and setpieces were planned out and Dini had to write around that.

    There are two misconceptions about Bane throughout adaptations
    A. He's dumb as a sack of bricks and he's all muscle
    B. He's weaker than a paperbag unless he uses venom
    Both can be traced back to Batman & Robin

      Part of what made BTAS important is the fact that they were actively taking influence from comics in a ways that hadn't been done before in Batman cartoons.
      Hell up until about 5 years before BTAS in a late season superfriends episode, the Wayne murder hadn't ever been depicted in any cartoon, and only mentioned briefly in 66.

      TDK Rises unironically saved him from ending up like Killer Croc, now everybody knows he's supposed to be strong and smart and the comics do it more often than not.
