Bane and The Psychology of Terrorism (Dark Knight Rises Psychology Analysis)

#Bane does not get the credit he deserves as movie villain. In this #characteranalysis I will look at the #psychologyofterrorism and show how these profiles describe both Bane and Bruce Wayne in the Dark Knight Rises. The symptoms of trauma can have long term effects on the mind that make a person more susceptible to extremist ideas. This character analysis will also show how Bane is a mirror into Bruce’s PTSD.
