Jeriko or Bane as he liked to call himself, was a fan of Batman's villains, favoring Joker's view of the world and loving Bane's name and appearance. He adapted traits of both villains and of course mixed in a few of his own. Bane lived alone and for good reason. Today, his plan of torturing the city would be put into action. His first step wouldn't be so dangerous, but give him a few months and people would be begging for a death that would not come. Bane had some extreme reflexes and was leaning towards inhuman, but still attractive over all. If anything, he was a military kind of strong with knowledge he knew people would kill for. Bane was seated in his basement with his newest invention, The Matter Manipulator. The Matter Manipulator could literally take matter and move it else where. The limit was the size of a full grown bear. Seeing as The Matter Manipulator was about the size of a shot gun, but it had a radius of twenty feet and a range of eight miles (as far as the eye can see). Bane put on his face mask and neck collar that was in actuality a voice disguise. He wore a bullet proof vest and military style pants with combat boots. His shot gun and The Matter Manipulator occupied his hand and back. He didn't walk outside, but ran looking like nothing more than someone who worked for the military. After reaching the city plaza he struck his first civilian with the Matter Manipulator. He then aimed his invention at an unstable ledge and placed the civilian there, leaving them to dangle dangerously in the air. "See how weak you people are. You're powerless to stop me, Bane! Look at yourselves cowering in fear before me." He paused and looked at the news reporter who seemed to be talking, "You, Shut up!" Bane struck her too leaving her dangling from the telephone wires and they snapped using the building for support the reporter remained safe and unharmed. Police swarmed in like bugs to a light. "You think those petty guns can stop me?" Bane said as The Matter Manipulator stripped the police of their guns and moving them five miles away from the area, "Snipers are second class." Bane dumped sniper rounds from his hands, obviously having used his invention on the snipers. "There's no hope and now what will you do?" Bane walked away, "Don't move or I'll kill everyone here!" No one followed him and he turned around only to see people running away. Bane returned safely to his home anonymous. He was known as Bane to the public, but Jeriko to everyone else. Jeriko then proceeded to his friend's house to watch the news. He had not bothered to buy a T.V seeing as though it was pointless. He just wanted to see what he looked like on television as "Bane". Jeriko was wearing a white tank top and tight leather pants and he stood at his friend's door giving it a hard knock, hoping she was home.
