Bio:

Jim Gordon was born in Central City in 1929. His father Stanley was an alcoholic architect and his mother Barbara worked on the line at a sewing factory. James was the oldest of four children and spent much of his time taking care of his siblings. When he was thirteen his tenement building was torched by an arsonist, and he lost his Father and youngest brother in the fire but him and the rest of his family were saved by Jay Garrick, The Flash. This experience lead him to wanting to be a police man to help people as his childhood hero did. He excelled in school and after graduating top of his class at the Central City Police Academy he quickly made detective. Upon receiving letters from his younger brother who had moved to Gotham about the horrific gang violence in the city, Jim Gordon applied for a transfer to the GCPD and was quickly accepted. He moved to Gotham City in the violent summer of 1969, and was horrified by the corruption in the police department. His brother was his only friend in the Dark city until he met a fearsome vigilante and a crime fighting team formed between himself, the Batman, and a cocky lawyer named Harvey Dent. The rest is history.
