The adrenaline-filled storyline comes to a close as Batman and Bane continue their battle, only one survivor can come out of this slugfest! Thankfully for Batman, an ally comes to his aid in the nick of time.
Bane has been a welcome surprise as we’ve seen almost half of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery make their appearances during this initial New 52 storyline of his new series by writer Paul Jenkins and artist David Finch. With each issue, the mystery behind the adrenaline-powered super-villains has been building up until the revelation in issue 6 of who real mastermind was. Month after month, the creative team has kept us in suspense. All signs pointed to the Scarecrow concocting the venomous mixture and injecting the serum to Arkham Asylum inmates, setting them off on their crazed and delusional rampages. However, the real culprit was actually Bane utilizing a kidnapped Poison Ivy to create the mixture empowering the villains and himself.

The final scenes also reveal more about another character introduced early in the series. Suffice to say, our initial suspicions regarding this character were satisfied and the revelation will be shown in issue 8. The end of issue 7 will surprise you! Finally, fans looking forward to other superheroes making their appearance will not be disappointed with the duo of the Man of Steel and the Scarlet Speedster.
The Good: More plot twists ad turns.
The Bad: Would’ve preferred Batman to handle the situation himself.
