Co-Creator of Batman Villain is “Lifelong” Conservative

Chuck Dixon, co-creator of the Bane character that appears in the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises,” called Rush Limbaugh’s notion that the movie is an attack on Mitt Romney “silly.” Dixon also calls himself a “lifelong” conservative.

He tells Comicbook.com, “The idea that there’s some kind of liberal agenda behind the use of Bane in the new movie is silly. I refuted this within hours of the article in the Washington Examiner suggesting that Bane would be tied to Bain Capital and Mitt Romney appearing. Bane was created by me and Graham Nolan and we are lifelong conservatives and as far from left-wing mouthpieces as you are likely to find in comics.”
