- "It's good to see you playing well with others again"
- —Gordon to Batman.
Sometime in the late 1990s, a vigilante began clearing up Gotham City, which including a corrupted Police Department. Gordon, who was Commissioner at the time, formed an initially uneasy alliance and before long, subsequent friendship with "The Batman". Gordon created the Bat-Signal as a means to contact the enigmatic Batman.
To be added
James Gordon is fiercely dedicated to his job as Gotham City Police Department Commissioner, rivaling Batman's determination to fight crime in Gotham City, helping the vigilante in his anti-crime crusade for many years.
While usually quite serious and practical, Gordon also has a somewhat dry sense of humor, remarking that it was good to see Batman "playing well with others again", upon meeting the Justice League's roster.
- Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston was heavily linked with the role but was eventually passed on to J.K. Simmons
