Bane Kills Someone Close to Batman (Spoiler)
In "City of Bane," Batman's titular foe has Gotham in a stranglehold. In Tom King, Mikel Janín and Tony S. Daniel's Batman #77, Selina Kyle nurses Bruce Wayne back to health a continent away. Meanwhile, Bane keeps the Bat-family at bay by holding hostage Bruce's closest friend and confidante, Alfred Pennyworth. But when Robin – Bruce's son Damian – enters Gotham anyway and encounters Thomas Wayne – Flashpoint's Batman – it doesn't go so well for him. Unfortunately, it goes even worse for Alfred, as when Damian is captured and brought before Bane, Bane does the unthinkable.
