—Jim Gordon to Bruce Wayne[src]

As his first case, Detective Jim and his partner Harvey Bullock was assigned the case of Thomas and Martha Wayne ‘s mangle. After arriving at the crime scene, Jim comforted the Waynes ‘ son, Bruce, who had survived the ordeal, promising him that he would do everything in his power to find the murderer and bring him to judge. Though several of his colleagues berated him for doing so, insisting he and Bullock drop the encase as it would bring unwanted attention, Gordon continued looking for leads anyhow, determined to keep his promise to Bruce. After several cold leads and unproductive interrogations, Jim was taken to Fish Mooney ‘s Nightclub by Harvey Bullock, to see if they could further their leads on the probe. The two Detectives were led to a recently paroled felon, named Mario Pepper who was rumored to have attempted to sell Martha Wayne ‘s stolen drop necklace. After arriving and interrogating Pepper at his apartment, the Detectives requested to search the premises. aflutter because of this, Pepper made a discharge for it. After making the two furrow him through the streets of Gotham, Jim cornered Pepper in an alley in which the two fight, and Pepper bested him in fight. however, Bullock, shot him before he could kill James. Returning to Pepper ‘s apartment, the GCPD found Martha Wayne ‘s pearl necklace within a box belong to Pepper. [ 3 ] Jim would late go onto discovered Pepper was simply framed and was n’t the Waynes ‘ murderer, after being questioned to whether he had taken any separate in the flagitious act by Barbara. Nevertheless, Jim mentioned the possibility to Bullock, not certain of whether his collaborator would tell him the truth, Jim went to Fish in search of his suffice, finding out from her that the Mario Pepper was in fact, framed. He was then beaten and captured by Fish Mooney and her associates. Bullock late went searching for him and was captured aboard him. The two were freed by Carmine Falcone, the head of the Falcone Crime Family in Gotham, equally well as an old friend of Jim ‘s asleep church father. In return, Jim was asked to kill Oswald Cobblepot, a former umbrella serviceman for Fish Mooney, who had snitched to the Major Crimes Unit. however, when lend to the docks and faced gloomy with the decision of whether to kill Cobblepot or not, Jim faked Cobblepot ‘s death, pushing him into the Gotham River, and ordering him never to come back to Gotham. [ 3 ] In the weeks following, Jim and Bullock investigated the death of a homeless war veteran, discovering it was connected to recent kidnappings of homeless children, by people claiming to be with the Mayor ‘s Homeless Outreach Program. After reporting this to Captain Essen, she demanded the two perplex to the bottom of the case, though not before emphasizing that neither of them goes to the imperativeness about this. later that night while having dinner with Barbara, he mentioned the casing which provoked her to call the Gotham Gazette with the news program, anonymously, despite Jim telling her not to. The next sidereal day after narrowing down the suspects, Jim and Bullock arrived at Quillinformer, one of the pharmaceutical manufacturers suspected of supplying the snatchers with ATP, a drug previously used at Arkham Asylum to put the patients to sleep. There, the two detectives discovered the snatchers and a group of the missing homeless children .
Although the two kidnappers escaped, Jim and Bullock were able to recover the children, allowing Mayor Aubrey James to send them all upstate. The Gotham City Police Department soon learned the buses taking the children upstate had been hijacked by the child snatchers. Jim and Bullock attempted to discern their localization by interrogating Morry Quillan who was in GCPD custody, learning from him that the truck the snatchers used had a plate with a branch on it. After getting every hand truck with a plate on a fork on it searched, Jim realized it was n’t a crotch that was on the truck, it was a trident. Jim arrived at Trident Intercontinental Shipping, just in clock time to save Selina Kyle, and rescue the other homeless children who were in the process of being ready to be shipped oversea. At the GCPD headquarter, he subsequently learned from Selina that she had seen the Waynes ‘ killed, and the face of their murderer. [ 4 ] Jim and Bullock were subsequently assigned to investigate the death of con man Ronald Danzer, who was killed when a valet tied him to a balloon and let him fly away. At the same meter, Montoya and her collaborator Crispus Allen asked Jim about what happened to Cobblepot. Jim denied knowing about him, and Montoya late visited Barbara at her house to discuss Jim ‘s “ corruption ” – Barbara refused to believe Montoya and told her to leave. Jim late met Bill Cranston, a deputy of the GCPD at the office, and shortly after, Cranston was killed by the vigilante with a balloon as he beat down a drug dealer. The Balloonman was becoming a veridical terror to the police, so Jim and Bullock traced stolen balloons to Carl Smikers. Smikers told them that he sold the balloons to an obscure homo but told him that there were only four ; after Cardinal Quinn ‘s death, there was one leave. Jim ‘s emboss Sarah Essen ordered Jim and Bullock to find the world deoxyadenosine monophosphate soon as possible, and Jim then had a hunch that the Balloonman was living in the previous orphanage. When they headed there, they found Davis Lamond, who held Bullock at point while telling Jim about his reasons for the murders – he wanted to bring department of justice to corrupt officials. Unswayed, Jim was then shot at by Lamond, but he was able to beat him down. Bullock tied Lamond to a balloon and let it go, but Jim sensed that this was the amiss thing to do and grabbed Lamond ‘s leg, flying with him. Bullock reluctantly shot the balloon and Lamond was put on a stretcher to enter an ambulance, and Jim found out that Lamond ‘s next target “ did n’t matter ” ; it could be any corrupt official in the city. When Jim returned to his apartment, he returned to Barbara, but a man knocked on the door. Barbara opened the door and let the man in, and it turned out to be Oswald Cobblepot, who needed to talk with Gordon. [ 5 ] Jim walked Cobblepot to the street, where he furiously berated him for coming back. however, Cobblepot then offered to work for Gordon as his hell informer, telling Jim that though early lies to him, he would never lie to him. Jim questioned him about the “ war ” he spoke of us, and Oswald told him that war was merely another form of politics and that it was all centered around Arkham. A pair of teenagers then arrived laughing and shouting, giving Cobblepot the opportunity to take off. The following day, Gordon is assigned the case of Councilman Ron Jenkins ‘ murder. He late meets with Alfred to inquire about the Waynes ‘ design for Arkham. With the information he gets from Alfred, Gordon discovers that Jenkins was working for Falcone. After Councilman Zeller was killed, Gordon and Bullock learned that Zeller and Jenkins had been killed by the lapp killer.

The Detectives cursorily went to the Lansky build where they failed to intercept Gladwell, though found a newspaper at his desk with the letters C, L, and M written on it. Jim late is told about Renee Montoya and Barbara Kean ‘s relationship by the latter, when Barbara questions him about Cobblepot. Gordon received a birdcall from Oswald informing him that Maroni had planned to attack a politician that night. Jim promptly went to get a list with the names of the policemen assigned to protect the city councilmen and noted that Officers Campos, Lazenby, and Martins were in charge of guarding the mayor. With time running out, Gordon went to the mayor ‘s theater where he discovered that none of the police officers were present. Knocking on the Mayor ‘s door, Gordon informed Mayor James that he thought person was coming to kill him. While trying to escape with Mayor James, Gordon encountered Richard Gladwell, and the two engaged each other in battle with Gladwell gaining the upper berth bridge player. however, Bullock arrived threatening to shoot if Gladwell did n’t back away. soon after Gladwell, attempted to finish his job to kill the mayor, despite being surrounded by Gordon and Bullock. This caused the two Detectives to fire at Gladwell, killing him. [ 6 ] Gordon and Bullock who were in the center of lunch, hear the sound of the alarm and went to the shop where the owner informs them that the attacker had stolen his ATM, with his bare hands. At the GCPD, Gordon and Bullock went over the tell they had obtained with Captain Essen. Gordon and Bullock began to explore Gotham in search of information about the drug addict musician, Benny, who they ended up finding under a bridge. There, surrounded by milk containers, Benny asks them to find the world with the mutilate ear for more of the drug that he gave him before trying to attack them and subsequently dropped dead before Gordon and Bullock. Gordon and Bullock late received a visit from Taylor Reece, a public relations lawyer for WellZyn, quickly assuring them that WellZyn had no connection to it, after hearing about the world with a mangle auricle she blames Stan Potolsky, a former employee of WellZyn. When Harvey leaves to get an apprehension guarantee for Potolsky, Jim receives a chew the fat from Frankie Carbone who persuades him to accompany him to talk about Oswald Cobblepot. Arriving at Bamonte ‘s, Gordon is greeted by Maroni who orders him to tell him the report Penguin had told him, or else Gordon and Cobblepot would both be killed. reluctantly Jim is forced to tell Maroni everything, including the murder of the Waynes, the death of Mario Pepper and faking Cobblepot ‘s death. ecstatic that the two stories matched, Jim was allowed to leave by Maroni. Jim returns to GCPD where among the things left by Potolsky at WellZyn is a photograph of him with an old college professor of his. The Detectives then went to Gotham University where they discovered Professor Isaac Steiner assisted Potolosky, and they were then attacked by Steiner who had inhaled a phial of Viper. Gordon is forced to shoot down the honest-to-god man as he got the upper hand of Bullock. Though before he died, the Professor informs them that Potolosky would strike back against Wayne Enterprises. There, Gordon went to the roof in orderliness to to get Potolosky to stop the spread of Viper. Though already having fulfilled his design to expose WellZyn, Potolosky asks Bullock and Gordon to visit Warehouse 39 before throwing himself off the ledge of the construction to his death. Later, Gordon and Bullock visited the Warehouse but are surprised to find an empty lab inside. [ 7 ] Arriving at the scenery of a crime, Gordon was informed by Bullock of what they were dealing with, and the two went to see Amanda Hastings ‘ parents, where they inquired whether they knew anyone who would want to cause damage to Amanda. There they meet the Hasting kin ‘s therapist, Dr. Marks, who specialized in hypnotherapy. The two Detectives were unable to get any utilitarian information out of Mr. Hastings. Comparing the murders of the Spirit of the Goat in the past with the murders committed by the Goat ‘s impersonator, Gordon realizes that in the absence of signs of intrusion into the homes of the victims, possibly the murderer had a set of keys to their homes, which would only be available to some of the companies responsible for providing clean services. In the checkup examiner ‘s room, Gordon and Bullock attended the autopsy of Amanda Hastings to verify that the mangle had been executed following the lapp demand methodology of the Goat. After discovering that the copycat had a penny into the back of the lead of Amanda Hastings, Gordon and Bullock were sent to see Bullock ‘s former partner Dix. He theorized that Randall Milkie had n’t worked entirely in the past and rather had been apart of a conspiracy. The two began to argue, and when the Detectives began to leave, Gordon was told by Dix to watch out for Bullock as he was a loose cannon and think of himself as a champion. They late find Ember Copley at an abandon field, and Gordon freed her while Bullock went after the Goat. Afterward, Gordon goes to help Bullock, knocking the Goat unconscious. Gordon is late arrested at the GCPD by Montoya and Allen of killing Oswald Cobblepot, despite Jim ‘s objections that he had n’t killed Cobblepot, he is n’t believed until Oswald Cobblepot arrives. [ 8 ] After the Penguin is discovered to be alive, Gordon, attempted to call Barbara to ask her to leave the city but is forced off the telephone, when Bullock punches him and attempts to assassinate him, in club to placate Falcone. Gordon is able to disarm him, and returns home and cursorily defeats both Gilzean and his associate. Fearing for Barbara ‘s animation, Gordon takes her to the busbar station where he asks her to leave for a few days until he solved the position. later, Gordon returns to the GCPD, asking Alvarez for several lacuna halt warrants signed by Judge Bam Bam. Essen tried to advise Gordon to leave town before he was killed because no one would help him. Victor Zsasz and his two female companions arrived at the GCPD looking for Gordon. A gunfight between the two began, with Gordon being wounded in his side, escaping into the parking batch bleeding. While there, Gordon was about caught by Zsaz, though an military officer arriving in the park set gave Jim time to escape. Though he ended up getting tear again, this time in the leg. fortunately, Montoya and Allen arrive on the setting to rescue Gordon. Hours late Gordon woke up in the veterinarian department of the Gotham University, where Dr. Thawson managed to extract the bullets. late, Jim and the Detectives went to Wayne Manor, where the Jim informed Bruce that if something were to happen him, Montoya and Allen would continue with the probe into the murder of his parents. That nox Jim hid out at his home while preparing his arsenal to carry out the suicide mission to arrest Falcone. surprisingly, he is visited by Bullock, who reasonably drunk, offers his serve in the madness that occurred since he figured he was dead either way. The following morning, the two detectives intercepted Mayor James in his limousine and used the Mayor as cover to infiltrate Falcone Manor without being executed. Falcone gave Gordon an ultimatum : trust his word or apprehension him, condemning Barbra ‘s life. reluctantly, the detective decided to trust the discussion of Falcone, who was proved he was n’t lying calling for Zsaz to bring Barbara.

Gordon proposed a fresh topographic point to keep Selina safe, Wayne Manor. Later, Gordon visits the Wayne sign of the zodiac to present Bruce with the draw of his rear ‘s killer whale, besides asking Bruce and Alfred to accommodate Selina in the mansion until they were able to take the case to test.

Dent, an ideal lawyer with impregnable convictions and a desire to execute justice, states that he believes that the entrepreneur Dick Lovecraft, a rival of Thomas Wayne ‘s, was involved with the Wayne murders. indent announced his idea of scaring the corrupt of Gotham, and with Gordon ‘s permission decided to spread the password about having a new witness to the Wayne character without confirming their identity. At the GCPD, Gordon and Bullock interrogated Ian ‘s brother, John Hargrove.

Wasting no meter, the two detectives arrived at the factory where they found Hargrove working on so far another fail. Relieved by the Detectives ‘ arrival, he informs them that his captors had threatened to kill his brother and his buddy ‘s kin, and were Russians led by a guy named Gregor Kasyanov who were trying to strike against Falcone.

Being a patrol detective, Jim understands that some situations will require him to get dirty at times, involving the periodic stamp out of suspects but he holds on to his idealism and believes that such actions will not constantly be necessary and risks his own life to save criminals such as Penguin and the Balloonman. Jason Skolimski aka the Ogre, proves to be a specify point for Jim ‘s brain and ethical motive. Growing disgusted at how corrupt Gotham is, specially the GCPD, he began battling said putrescence in more doubtful manners such as working with Oswald Cobblepot and brutalizing a suspect to get information on the Ogre. The few months he spent working within GCPD have besides hardened his ideals, seasoning a once primitive collar into a decide hatchet man who now understands ideals sometimes have to be forsaken for the sake of justice .

Yeah, Bullock tells me you’re a real boy scout. Don’t think we should be roughing up the skells?
—Bill Cranston to Jim Gordon[src]
I’m sick and tired of your holier-than-thou crap, Gordon.
—Gotham Police Officer[src]

When facing the injustice within the police and government systems, this tends brings out the dark expression of his personality more than anything. While battling corrupt GCPD members such as Arnold Flass and Gillian Loeb, he shows more aggression, reasonably unusual fitting the “ Boy Scout ” position people get from Jim. His ultimate shift in morality began when he killed Theo Galavan in cold rake. due to knowing what kind of monster Theo was and the influence he held allowed him to get off unharmed and besides due to Parks, a cub hook being killed by Eduardo Flamingo. Jim had Flamingo at point but did not kill him causing a feel of guilt. Knowing a man like Theo can not be brought down so easily and he would only kill more people if he was allowed to walk freely, Jim took judge into his own hands by allowing Theo to be tortured by Oswald and shot him in the breast. Jim ‘s new jaded cynicism has caused clash between him and the new patrol captain, Nathaniel Barnes. Nathaniel ‘s tauten high-mindedness was similar to what Jim was when he started at the GCPD and the dark actions that he committed allowed Nathaniel to believe that Jim in truth did murder Carl Pinkney ( although to be bonny there was a solid horizontal surface of tell towards him at the time ). This, along with respective other incidents, have besides disturbed his opinions on joining the patrol as his new beliefs are that the law should bend to fit justice rather than the early means around. As the law was bound only by testify and facts, which caused him to be unlawfully imprisoned when he was framed by Edward Nygma, Jim finally left the GCPD to achieve justice outside of legality by taking down Hugo Strange. Although sometimes dirty, as it is occasionally necessary, he has still not dropped to the tied of the crime he is dedicated to defeating as he voices unclutter, guilt or compunction over his moral blips. After Jim was infected by a drug known as the Red Queen, he was forced to face his fears, as he admitted to a hallucination of his late church father, Peter Gordon, that the reason why he gave up on his kinship with Lee Thompkins and did not return to the GCPD, was because he was afraid of letting individuals down, after his hallucinations had ended, Jim last overcame his reverence, as he became a patrol detective again. Jim is protective of the individuals he cares about, as seen when he tried to warn Lee about her fiancé, Mario Calvi being infected by Alice Tetch ‘s lineage, although she did not believe him and believed he was trying to sabotage her relationship with Mario out of jealousy, when he went to try and save Lee, and bring Mario in animated, he was forced to kill Mario in self-defense when he tried to kill Lee, but he still felt guilt and compunction for what he did to him, despite the fact that he did not like Mario at all ( due to the latter ‘s arrogant, natural and disrespectful traits ) this protectiveness of those he cares about was besides seen when he found out that Nathaniel was infected with Alice ‘s lineage, and he tried to bring him in alive, and succeeded. The independent remainder between bringing Nathaniel in and his fail attack to bring Mario in alive was that he had no choice but to kill Mario ; because he was about to kill Lee, whereas Nathaniel was in a draw with Jim, and Jim outdrew and non-fatally nip him. Jim has a certain grade of tolerance when it comes to being blamed for situations that are not wholly his defect, this is evidenced by the fact that when Lee kept on call on the carpet and jab at him for her husband ‘s end, he initially tolerated it. however, in “ Light The Wick “, Jim ultimately got tired of Lee trying to blame him for ruining her biography ; as he coldly and cruelly pointed out regarding how Mario tried to kill her, that he was forced to kill the latter in self-defense and he would do it again in a pulse, even points out that Lee can blame him for her conserve ‘s death, walk away and never come back ; but it ‘s not going to change the fact that her late conserve was infected with the virus and tried to kill her .

physical appearance

You couldn’t look more like a cop if you wore a blue uniform.
—Harvey Bullock[src]

Jim is a valet in his mid to late 30s with a slender build with blue sky eyes and embrown hair. early on on in his career at the GCPD he had short hair’s-breadth, although he subsequently began to grow it. Unlike his partner Harvey Bullock, Gordon was constantly well kept whilst on the wrinkle of duty, wearing largely a fresh suit and was constantly clean shaven and professional looking. Although on some occassions ( such as being on the run after being framed by Edward Nygma ) he developed an unkempt appear and grew a chaff for a unretentive time. During his time as a amplitude hunter going after the get off experiments from amerind Hill, Jim donned a black leather jacket. After being promoted to captain at the GCPD, Gordon began to wear a brown trenchcoat on several occasions.

Ten years following his promotion to commission of the GCPD, Gordon ‘s hair had slightly lightened due to his aging. For a short while he grew a mustache, although when a couple of those close to him made remarks about it, he chose to shave it off and remain clean shave, even admitting that he did n’t think it suited him .

Powers and abilities

You think you know who I am, what I’m capable of? You have no idea.
—Jim Gordon to Penguin[src]

former powers

Oh, James, I would love to see what Alice’s virus would do to you. The beast in you is right there. So desperate to get out.
—Jervis Tetch to Jim Gordon[src]
  • Superhuman strength: After taking the Alice Tetch virus, Jim gained a significant increase in strength, which lasted up until he took an antidote to the virus. His newfound strength allowed him to punch through the wooden coffin he was in and exhume himself after Lee Thompkins buried him alive. He was able to effortlessly throw a police officer away from him and punch a Talon with enough force to send him sliding across the floor. Before Victor Fries could freeze him and Harvey Bullock, Jim was able to leap up and rip a water pipe loose to counteract the former’s freeze beam. He then proceeded to successfully punch and break through the new ice wall created by the water meeting the beam. Back on the surface, he was able to rip off a car door from Bullock’s car. When facing the League of Shadows, Jim threw an assassin across the floor and defeated the rest of them, but accidentally impaled Fish Mooney with a sword he disarmed. Shortly after, he lifted Oswald Cobblepot by the neck with just one hand. He ripped the metal chains off a gate to protect Jervis Tetch and avoid being shot by Barbara Kean. Back at the GCPD precinct, he dented Kowalski and Burrows’ lockers after repeatedly hitting them, injured the lab tech’s arm and ripped off the doorknob to the medical examiner’s room. He effortlessly tosses Bullock around and dented the train car behind him. When Hugo Strange later started the process of injecting Jim with an unknown chemical, Jim temporarily gained an increase in strength once more, singlehandedly being able to break free from his bonds and throw Strange at the same time.
  • Superhuman durability: Jim was unfazed when he was punched multiple times by a Talon, but was vulnerable to others of equal strength, such as the infected Lee Thompkins, who knocked him down with a wrench. He was also able to punch a wooden coffin, a wall of ice and a subway several times with his hands showing no sign of injury.


Oldest in your class. Not the strongest, or the fastest, or even the most academically-gifted, either. And yet, you finished at the top of your class. Now how did you do that? I’ll tell you how. You were a soldier. You saw combat while your classmates were still playing with themselves in their parents’ basements. You got blood on your face.
—Nathaniel Barnes[src]
You always were clever, Jim. I respect that.
—Edward Nygma to Jim Gordon[src]
But only because I know that you’ll never quit. And I love that about you.
—Lee Thompkins[src]
  • Indomitable will: Jim is nearly fearless and almost never gives up under most situations; for example, he was able to break free of Jervis Tetch’s hypnotic suicidal impulses implanted in his mind, even when infected by the Alice Tetch virus (prior to him being cured from it) Jim did not give in to his dark urges. When he was sprayed with Jonathan Crane’s fear toxin, Jim was able to overcome his worst fear of hurting Lee Thompkins and the temptation to kill himself to prevent her from truly living a peaceful life, despite Jonathan claiming that defeating the toxin was impossible. Ivy Pepper called Jim “tenacious”. Hugo Strange stated that he has always admired Jim’s fighting spirit and Harvey Bullock described Jim as “not one to quit”.


  • Guns/Firearms: Jim has used a variety of firearms such as pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, machine guns, and grenade launchers. He initially carried the standard SIG-Sauer P226 that most GCPD officers carry.
    • Smith & Wesson SW1911SC E-Series: Jim carries this pistol as his main sidearm of choice. He first started carrying it after he left the GCPD, and continued to use it once he returned to the department.
  • Telescopic Baton: Jim used a telescopic ASP baton to take on an Indian Hill monster, however it eventually broke.
  • Brass Knuckle Duster: Jim received a knuckle duster from Bullock to aid in interrogating criminals on the streets.
  • Bulletproof Vest: Jim has used a bulletproof vest for protection whenever he goes into a dangerous situation.
  • Handcuffs: Jim Gordon uses handcuffs to arrest criminals. He used handcuffs in order to gain an advantage when fighting Nyssa al Ghul.
