Batman’s Bane character creator Chuck Dixon speaks: One day after conservative windbag Rush Limbaugh claimed the new Batman blockbuster “Dark Knight Rises” villain Bane was part of a liberal conspiracy against Mitt Romney, the creator the the character, Chuck Dixon, speaks out, saying it’s silly to allege a liberal conspiracy.
“The idea that there’s some kind of liberal agenda behind the use of Bane in the new movie is silly,” Dixon told ComicBook.com. “I refuted this within hours of the article in the Washington Examiner suggesting that Bane would be tied to Bain Capital and Mitt Romney appearing. Bane was created by me and Graham Nolan and we are lifelong conservatives and as far from left-wing mouthpieces as you are likely to find in comics.”
“As for his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, Bane is a force for evil and the destruction of the status quo. He’s far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you’re looking to cast him politically. And if there ever was a Bruce Wayne running for the White House it would have to be Romney.” Source
It’s actually funny that college drop-out and pill popper Rush Limbaugh claims there’s a liberal conspiracy without actually doing his home work. This character has been around for quite a few years. Well before Mitt Romney threw his hat in the ring for the presidency. It should also be noted that Chuck Dixon is a conservative, who claims Romney is more like Bruce Wayne (nauseating).
