The super-criminal Bane is determined to claim his place as the greatest villain who has ever lived!
In the dark waters off the coast of Gotham City, a mysterious crew of smugglers has made a deadly mistake--they tried to bring weapons of mass destruction into Bane's city!
After tracing the illicit arms back to their source, Bane and his henchmen uncover a criminal conspiracy that seems to span the entire globe and encompass every illegal activity under the sun.
But if there really is a secret empire behind all of the world's crime, Bane should nay, must be the one running it. And no one--not assassin cults, super-hackers, Catwoman or Batman himself is going to stand in his way!
Twenty-five years after bringing Bane to life in Batman: Knightfall, creators Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan reunite to tell the most epic tale yet of one of Batman's most dangerous foes!
