Yep. Way I remember it was that his dad was an English mercenary who had carried out a list of crimes the length of your arm (or something) and they punished Bane for it instead.
Not just any English mercenary, but crap '90s supervillain King Snake: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Snake Behold his be-mulleted glory!

Sounds like Nolan got his inspiration for Ra's wife taking his place in the Pit from here... :P
