Tom King spent a lot of time in the deserts of the Middle East as the president of the CIA, so he knows a thing or two about not wearing clothes since it was so hot out. He’s taken his experience as CEO of the CIA to Batman, which features Bane in his birthday suit.
King iterates that Bane doesn’t give a fuck about clothing because he spent 17 years alone without clothes, so he’s not afraid to attack you while hanging dong.
With Batman #75 on the way, as the start of the City of Bane arc, readers can only expect more Bane nudity as the arc goes on. But if you’re actually trying to get your hands on some DC Comics that actually show male genitalia, you’ll have to reach for a rare copy of Batman: Damned #1, before it was edited.

“City of Bane” begins! Bane’s minions have moved into Gotham City, taken control and are ruling with an iron fist—including rounding up any villain who refuses to sign onto Bane’s program—and Batman is nowhere to be found. At least not the Batman anyone knows. It’s like someone has replaced the real Gotham City with a twisted funhouse-mirror version of it.
Meanwhile, the real Bruce Wayne is on a spiritual quest to regain his fighting spirit after his showdown with his father in the desert. Can the people of Gotham hold on until their protector is strong enough to come to their rescue?
Plus, what does Lex Luthor’s scheming mean for Gotham City when Bane and the villains are already in control?
This extra-sized anniversary issue kicks off a new multi-part storyline that ties together all the threads of the first 74 issues of Tom King’s epic BATMAN run!
