And don't give me "it looks like a luchador mask". Half of the masks supers wear look like luchadors. Spider-man looks like a luchador.

I never read the Bane comics either, but even I know that's a luchador mask. Because it looks like a luchador mask.

So he was really a luchador in the story? That's dumb.

It's incredibly stupid, and that's before you factor in that he's a luchador that hatched a plan that outsmarted Batman.

But really, if you can tell Bane is a luchador from his mask but not suspect Deadpool, Spider-man, Wolverine, Taskmaster, Deathstroke, (pre-movie) Hawkeye, Flash, Captain America, Daredevil, Grendel, Cyclops, Spawn, Prowler, Spot, Klaw, Slyde, Crossbones, or a bunch of other characters that don't immediately spring to mind of having been Mexican wrestlers then you're a better man than I.

In my mind the difference lies solely in Bane's build which is quite pro-wrestler looking. Most other characters are streamlined and slim (despite technically being more muscular than humanly possible). Also I imagine some cultural osmosis has creeped into their brains to let them know he's a luchador.

I don't see Luchadores in the same light as I used to, at least not after Saints Row 3, Anytime I see Wrestler, and Mask, I automatically think of

Fucking ridiculous..

Anyway, I knew what Bane's comic book appearance was because before going to see the dark knight rises,  I did a little research on the character because i had no idea who bane was supposed to be.  in contrast to the Joker, who I knew.

Bane was in the original Batman and Robin. How could you not remember?

Wrestling shoes and eye holes still don't make that a luchador mask. A luchador mask design highlights the muzzle and lips, not just the eyes. Do none of you watch Mexican wrestling?

I don't understand all the luchador hate, because luchador's are badass. But yeah, the mouth is prominent.
