There are many reasons to be scared of the 'Dark Knight Rises' version of Bane. He's big, strong, referred to as a ruthless killer, has lived in prison for the majority of his life and even Catwoman is scared of him. But the main reason we'd piddle in our pants if confronted by him, and no one seems to have picked up on this, is that he looks like a relative of the 'Predator' aliens.

Sure the main thing lacking here are those iconic dreads, but that mask gives the impression that Bane is constantly unhinging his jaw to swallow his victims whole. Plus, he's got a wicked case of the crazy eyes, which probably come from being paranoid of air-born viruses. Why else would he need to wear that mask 24/7?
