Genius Covers: Batman #497

A few weeks ago the interwebs were all abuzz with the photos coming out of Pittsburgh showing a lot of what the new Batman movie would look like.  


Batman battles the villains Bane and Catwoman in the new film...while we are all familiar with Catwoman [who will always be Michelle Pfieffer in my book] Bane is not that well known a villain.  

He is probably best remembered by being the one who broke Batman's back in Batman #497 from July 1993.  This was all in the lead-up to Batman #500 in which the Batman substitute Azrael defeats Bane.  My issue below is from the second printing of issue which makes it effectively worthless.
