Jason Bard was the early police commissioner of Gotham City.
He transferred from Detroit, and was personally chosen by James Gordon to join the task force. however this cursorily took a sharp turn after Jim fired a shoot at a electric potential box due to Cluemaster ‘s plan. This led to Jason Bard getting a promotion to Lieutenant. While believing Gordon was innocent, Jason had no choice but to play along in order to keep his military position in the military unit. This was particularly shown when he and the interim-Commissioner faced Batman on the GCPD rooftop. He ordered the roll of tobacco to be fired, letting Batman leave.

This led to innocent police members being killed due to Hush blowing up Batman ‘s caches across the city. Jason was besides interrogated by Batgirl who demanded to know why he did n’t utilize the USB that Batman had given him to clear Gordon ‘s list. Red Hood interrupted and let ‘s go of the rope that Batgirl was using to interrogate Bard, but Batgirl caught it again equitable in time, causing Bard to break his leg.
