Gotham

Detective James Gordon

/ 7 January 2016

Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) romanticised the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney.

A former college football star and a valiant war hero, Gordon was fast-tracked through the GCPD ranks, but his dedication to battling corruption made him unpopular with the top brass.

He’s a brave, energetic and honest man, who hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

Driven to live up to the classical virtues of a father he barely knew, he’s an idealistic soul who strives for justice.

But can real justice be served in a city as corrupt as Gotham?
