|Gold||650/1000||157,000||Available in Store, Gotham City Pack, Gold Booster Pack|
|Venom Tank: Once per match, when Bane is below 40% health, he does 25% more damage and all basic attacks will be critical hits for 10 seconds.|
Bane Prime is one of the more common gold characters with decent attributes and a passive that gives him a temporary damage buff at low health.
A very common drop from the Gold Booster Pack, he has the second lowest damage stat among all gold cards, after Boss Solomon Grundy. He does however, have good health helped by his signature gear, which can let him take considerable damage, and his basic attacks allow a moderate stun (meaning it is hard to interrupt) as well as inducing flying knockdowns. Bane Prime is a card most don't consider a viable addition, but with the right amount of gear and team cards, Bane is a solid stepping stone for new players.
Bane was first buffed in an update that gave him the ability to always crit on not just basic attacks, but also special attacks and DOT from gear during those 10 seconds, but then the latter was removed and now he could only crit on basics during that time.
Please note that battles are highly situational: this section only mentions cards that have mechanics that, for any reason, are particularly effective with/against, or particularly ineffective against Bane. Having a card that "counters" Bane does not mean it is always a good choice.
- Gears that can increase Crit damage.
- Superman/Injustice 2: Once his passive is triggered, all of Bane's attacks will be critical hits, including basic attacks, eliminating the need for specials.
- Batman/Arkham Knight, Green Lantern/Red Son: Both are immune to crit, making Bane's passive worthless.
