It is infamous for having a vast criminal underworld, that mostly rules the streets and businesses. It is also famous, however, for having a masked and fearsome vigilante, known only as "Batman", who successfully rages a never-ending war on crime in the city including his raging a never-ending battle against the psychotic homicidal maniac crime lord known as "The Joker". Geographically, Gotham is located right across a bay from the city of Metropolis.

HistoryEdit

Early HistoryEdit

Gotham was established as a port by Norwegian mercenaries in 1635. It would become a major city in the subsequent years.

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.

Legend of the BatmanEdit

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 Crime Family and the Maroni Crime Family as well as criminals ranging from the Joker to mercenary Floyd Lawton.
