“I am Suicide: Part Two,” by Tom King and artist Mikel Janin, is a quick read and is narrated by Catwoman (even though she doesn't show up until the end of this comic). The reader learns a bit about Catwoman's life, when she was an orphan, and her relationship with Bruce Wayne. Bane is no longer....well Bane. He doesn't have the venom flowing through his veins, which makes him a little bit more on Bruce's level. However, Bane still ends up with the upper hand. It's going to be interesting to see how Batman is going to defeat Bane, considering Bane isn't truly the Bane that he has been up against in the past. Without the venom, he's weaker, but he's also going to be using different tactics now that he can't rely on the venom and “breaking Bruce's back.”
He's still plenty strong, but he now has more of a weakness. It's going to be interesting to see who has the upper hand in the next issue, especially if Catwoman is going to be helping Bruce out. Even though if you were asked who would win in a fight, Catwoman or Bane, you would probably pick Bane, Catwoman has plenty tricks up her sleeves and can be a valuable asset.
