Bane's head turn for the New Batman Adventures. Henry Silva reprises his role as Bane for The New Batman Adventures episode "Over the Edge", this time with less of a noticeable accent. After Barbara Gordon is killed in action as Batgirl, Batman's secret identity is exposed and he becomes a fugitive from the law, hunted down by her father, Commissioner Gordon. Unable to bring Batman to justice through traditional means, Gordon grants Bane an early release from prison in exchange for assistance in apprehending the Dark Knight.
