SummaryAdd a Summary
Eight years after the death of Harvey Dent, the Batman is tested to return to Gotham when he is pit against the villainous Bane and the mysterious beauty Selina Kyle. But deep in the shadows, the League of Shadows has devised a plan for revenge against Batman.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

The mask isn't for your protection, but for the people you care about - Batman
Batman: (on a rooftop, talking with Selina. Turns away briefly, then turns back, and realizes she's gone) "So that's what that feels like."
Bane: "...Ohhhh, you think darkness is your ally... But you merely adopted the dark... I was born in it! Molded by it... I didn't see the light until I was already a man. By then it was nothing to me but BLINDING! (grabs Batman from the shadows and continues to beat him) The shadows betray you, because they belong to me! (repeatedly punches Batman in the face, breaking his cowl) I will show you where I have made my home whilst preparing to bring justice. Then, I will break you. (Hits detonator, blowing a hole into the bottom of Wayne Enterprise) Your precious armory, gratefully accepted! We will need it."
