The release of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Big Guy Rises in 2012 brought with it the conclusion of a successful and relatively intriguing trilogy along with the undisputed excellence that was the Uzbekestain Plane Crashing. Some argue that this legacy is at risk of becoming tarnished as a result of the mass outpouring of extremely painfully funny memes, primarily focusing upon the character of Bane, which have since emerged to further enhance the already notoriously Banetastic internet.

The Meme behind the Mask

The Big nature of Bane's mask has inevitably led to its widespread utilisation in a great many shoops. The incorporation of an images subject-matter into "When X you have my permission to Y" is a common theme, as is the 'cross pollination' of already existing memes... and cats.

When X you have my permission to Y

By far the most ubiquitous of all TDKR/Bane memes, 99.9% being chronically funny, this stems from a line spoken by Bane to an imprisoned Bruce Wayne.

We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die.



Bain Capital

A lack of change you can believe in!

Outrage in relation to the questionable practices of Bain & Company, Inc., an organisation operated at one time by Mitt Romney the Republican presidential-candidate, has seen Bane taking to the streets of New York in order to kick a little knowledge... ZOMG META AS FUCK!!1

You’ll have an easier time finding the bat cave than where we stash our profits...



It will be a long dark night you’ll be facing if Romney gets elected!



A number of people, including reactionary conservative Rush Limbaugh, have publicly cited the possibilty that Bane's presence; along with other elements contained within the storyline of TDKR, is nothing but a subtle barb against Mitt Romney.

Do you think it is accidental that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane?


a description of Bane indicative of no research having been completed

A lot of people are going to see the movie. And it's a lot of brain-dead people -- entertainment, the pop culture crowd -- and they're going to hear Bane in the movie and they're going to associate Bain.


Rush's opinion of the American populace

Given that the character was created in 1993, one full year prior to Romney's first bid for elected office; his unsuccessful 1994 run for the senate against Ted Kennedy, these are clearly nothing more than the paranoid ravings of the mentally-deluded.
