Every Saturday, the Gotham Gazette includes a small life-styles piece called "Gotham Is."
In the column, random Gothamites are asked to complete the sentence "Gotham is… " using three words or less.
The Gazette has been running the "Gotham Is" column for years, ever since I was a boy.
Here are some of the words used ot describe Gotham the past few weeks:
Gotham is "Villainous."
Gotham is "A losing game."
Gotham is "Hopeless."
"There's no place like home."
Batman #1 2011

Inheriting a fortune after the tragic death of his parents Bruce Wayne dedicated himself to fighting crime and curing Gotham of the cancer that plagues it. In order to strike fear in to the hearts of criminals he donned the visage of the Bat, declaring himself Batman, the enemy of injustice and the Dark Knight of Gotham.


Batman is terror itself in Gotham. It is his turf, his hunting ground and his home. It is here he has the greatest amount of fear factor and "power" thanks to his resources, familiarity and connections. Outside of Gotham he is seen as a mythical boogieman or psychopath known to terrorize civilians, police officers and criminals alike. Law Enforcement in Gotham has a shaky truce with the Bat preferring to avoid him in most cases or going the opposite direction of counting him amongst the criminals. There are a few, however, who do offer the man aid.

There are plenty of outstanding warrants for "The Batman" that still circulate the GCPD, (Gordon can only cover up so much). They range from assault with deadly weapons, breaking and entering, obstruction of justice, fleeing the scene of the crime, reckless endangerment, carrying concealed weapons without presenting a permit, resisting arrest so on and so forth. Batman is considered armed and extremely dangerous.


While a youth Bruce Wayne bore witness to the brutal murder of his father Dr.Thomas Wayne and mother, Martha, at the hands of a street hoodlum named Joe Chill. What walked out of "Crime Alley" that day was no longer a child but a creature hell-bent on vengeance.

After the tragedy of his parents death the young man was placed under the ward of his family's butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

Having vowed to avenge the murder and with his declaration of war on all the criminals of Gotham. Bruce knew he had to hone himself in to a weapon, a relentless man hunter who could walk alongside his own darkness.

Barely a teenager, Bruce embarks on his path, a voyage that takes him to every corner of the globe as he studies a versatile range of skill-sets from fighting styles, criminology, stealth, psychology, profiling, tracking, and so forth from the likes of hunters, magicians, gymnasts, medicine men, detectives, mercenaries, crooks, monks and fighters from all walks of life. In time Bruce would forge himself in to a living weapon prepared for almost any given situation or scenario he may find himself in.

After his years of travel Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham acting briefly as a plain-clothes vigilante, only to learn the hard way he still had much to learn. To be the avenging hero Gotham needed Bruce required an edge and not long after this revelation he discovered it. The now young adult Bruce Wayne embraced his own fears and found something that would incite terror in the common hoodlum and thug, something that would prey upon their cowardice and give him that required edge he desired. He donned cape and cowl and became the Batman. A vampirish, ominous looking creature of the night both vicious and terrifyingly overwhelming. A creature out of nightmares that would save Gotham and become something much more than just a man.

This was just the beginning…

Character Details

Bruce Wayne is an aloof, egotistical, yet charming playboy known to cycle through pretty girls as fast as James Bond. He has been described as narcissistic, callous, selfish and rude yet also surprisingly generous, well spoken and a practicing philanthropist who likes to throw his money around to solve problems or make himself look better. A smile and wad of cash; the Bruce Wayne fix.

Batman is a fearless, unyielding warrior who will stare in to the abyss without flinching. He is cold, calculating, generally not one for words unless required, detached and violent. Everything villains should fear. Despite this display of stone cold vigilance he is a hero who will run through a burning building, barefoot upon glass, through gunfire, while covered in gasoline to save an innocent. Batman has honed himself in to a creature who hardly resembles a human while wearing the cowl.



Image Name Relation Notes
Alfred1.jpg Alfred Pennyworth Bat-Family / Butler Codename: The Eagle or Penny-One
Batgirl01.jpg Batgirl Bat-Family Daughter of David Cain, one of my own mentors. Now lives with Oracle as her right hand. Perhaps the most dangerous of the Bat-Family.
Catwoman1.jpg Catwoman Companion / FrEnemy Though reserved about it I consider her a member of the clan. However, my trust in her is very limited even despite our "relationship".
nightwing1.jpg Nightwing Bat-Family My oldest partner next to Alfred, Nightwing has proven invaluable time-and-time again despite our differences. A core member of the Bat-Family without him as part of it, it would not exist.
babs-001.jpg Oracle Bat-Family Barbara "Babs" Gordon, daughter of James Gordon the former commissioner of the GCPD. An asset and a staple member of the Bat-Family. One of the best hackers in the world.
