Via lefty cesspool Gawker (who fail to recognize it was the Obama campaign that started the Bane comparison):

Making an unplanned phone call into the nationally syndicated radio program Schnitt Show yesterday, comic book writer Chuck Dixon, co-creator of the character Bane, refuted claims made by Rush Limbaugh that the homophonic similarities between the Batman villain and Mitt Romney’s financial services company Bain suggest a liberal conspiracy to smear the presidential candidate. […]

As Bleeding Cool notes, Dixon is “one of the comic book industry’s best-known political conservatives.”

Despite vehemently denying that there was any connection to be made between his Batman work and the current election cycle, Dixon did offer Limbaugh and other right-wing straw-graspers a consolation prize.

“As for his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, Bane is a force for evil and the destruction of the status quo,” Dixon said. “He’s far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you’re looking to cast him politically. And if there ever was a Bruce Wayne running for the White House it would have to be Romney.”

He’s far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you’re looking to cast him politically. And if there ever was a Bruce Wayne running for the White House it would have to be Romney.
