He’s the one man who broke the Bat. He rules the island prison that once held him captive with an iron fist. He is Bane, and he has something – or someone – that Batman needs. And Batman will risk a suicide mission to take it, or them, from him.

But to infiltrate the stronghold of a criminal genius, the Dark Knight will need to raise his own army of criminals. From the bowels of Arkham Asylum, he’ll select an elite squad of the craziest, deadliest, most dangerous villains alive-including Catwoman, the one woman in the world who knows him best, despite the blood on her claws. But Batman’s makeshift Suicide Squad is every bit as unstable as the real deal. As lust, addiction, insanity and betrayal take their toll on his team, not everyone will make it out of Bane’s fortress alive and unbroken…

Bane studied the other carefully from beneath his mask.  He had thought himself acquainted with all of the Batman’s cohorts, but this one…  He was either new, or Bane had made a grave miscalculation.

“It would appear that the Bat has gotten quite lax in his standards,” he said by way of introduction, his hand already hovering over the button that would give him another dose of Venom.

“Or is he not aware that you do not share his intolerance for firearms?”
