Fools Paradise: Is Bane Sulking Over The Melted Ice Cream He Can’t Eat?

You know what is the greatest pain Batman’s arch nemesis, Bane, experiences? Probably not the gas mask that he wear to continuously suppresses his excruciating pain; it is probably how he have to witness an ice cream melting before him because he can’t eat it (because of the mask). Ok. I get it. That’s a lame joke, because Bane can eat and drink. All he have to do is to remove the mask and feed himself the painkiller externally, presumably as he consumes his meal. But that doesn’t take away the fun of Fools Paradise interpretation of Bane sulking over a fast melting ice cream he held in his hand and standing next to a coin-operated kiddie ride of the The Dark Knight’s iconic ride, the Tumbler. The camo one, of course. The matte black is still with the cape crusader. Continue reading Fools Paradise: Is Bane Sulking Over The Melted Ice Cream He Can’t Eat?
