At the end of RoT Bane disintergrates multiple technobeasts with his TK. His Force Pushes are lethal as shown by the narration stating that had Farfalla not of partially blocked his Push, Raskta would have died from that alone, as well as in PoD it being described as capable of liquidising bones.
He "blocked" the wave in the sense that he prevented it from outright killing him. The wave still managed to literally disintegrate every single bone in his body. So really, it's academic. He would have died from just the wave anyway. Downplaying the feat by pointing out that Kas'im survived it is like saying that getting shot in the heart doesn't kill you, it's your heart failing and your body dying from lack of blood flow that kills you.
Also, it's important to keep in mind that at that point in the fight, Bane was literally using up the last of his energy reserves after fighting for his life for like half an hour, and he was also a relative neophyte in regards to his power. A non-exhausted, EoD-level Bane would be capable of a drastically stronger force wave than the one we see in PoD.
edit- I'll address the rest of you guys tomorrow. At work right now.

No it didn't. He blocked himself from the wave preventing it from shattering his bones.
"There was nothing subtle about Bane's attack: the massive shock wave shook the very foundations of the great Rakatan Temple. The concussive blast had enough power to shatter every bone in Kas'im's body and pulverize his flesh into a mass of pulpy liquid. But at the last possible instant he threw up a shield to protect himself from the attack.
Unfortunately, he couldn't shield the Temple around him."
