Following Rush Limbaugh's attempt to cry conspiracy over the idea that The Dark Knight Rises villain Bane was meant as a political jab at Mitt Romney's ties to Bain Capital, comic book writer Chuck Dixon — who created the Bane character for DC's 1993 series Knightfall — chimed in to set the record straight on the character's origins. "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,” he told ComicBook.com. "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."
