Gotham City is the birthplace and residence of the vigilante Batman. It is a large bustling city located on the eastern seaboard of the United States of America in the state of New Jersey, only across the bay from its sister city, Metropolis in the District of Metropolis.

HistoryEdit

Founded centuries ago by a Norwegian mercenary, Gotham City grew to become one of the world's leading economic hubs and a center for history, technology and the arts.[1]

Murder of the WaynesEdit

In 1981, eminent philanthropists Thomas and Martha Wayne lost their lives in a mugging-gone-wrong. The crime left their only son Bruce, who witnessed their murder, the last surviving member of the Wayne Family.

In the mid-1990s, a vigilante known as "The Batman" waged a one-man war on crime. Armed with a prototype armor suit, numerous gadgets and a custom combat vehicle, he went on to take down both the Falcone and Maroni crime families, as well as other extremely formidable criminals, ranging from the flamboyant psychopath Joker to the mercenary Deadshot and cannibalistic metahuman Killer Croc.
