This is a passage from the novelization of TDKR, from the big reveal scene toward the end with Bane/Talia. I wish this would have been in the movie. I wonder if it was shot but then edited out.
After Bane is rescued by the LOS in the flashback:Bane balanced atop upright wooden poles as the League's brutal instructors battered him with hard oak staffs, trying to knock him off his perch. Bare-chested, the scars on his back a visible reminder of his past, Bane dodged and deflected the blows, refusing to fall.
A crude mask--an early prototype--hid his face.
With pride, Talia observed Bane's indomitable spirit, yet Ra's turned away.
If only ;__;
