Commissioner James "Jim" Worthington Gordon is a detective and a commissioner from Batman series by DC Comics.


Rookie cop James W. Gordon was transferred from Gotham City to Chicago as part of a plan by Gillian Loeb, then a captain, to cover up events that would eventually lead to the creation of the first Wrath, Gordon having shot a dirty cop and his wife while they were sneaking out of a warehouse. Gordon complied when Loeb threatened to kill the couple's young son. During his tenure in Chicago, Gordon struggled with his wife, Barbara Eileen Gordon over conceiving a child, and took university night classes in criminology. He faced brutality amongst the other officers after uncovering corruption within the force. Later, Gordon uncovered evidence of rigging in the mayoral election, and brought down two more of his fellow officers. Eventually, his commissioner recommended a speedy transfer to Gotham City for him, both for his own safety and for theirs.

A man of integrity, the newly-promoted Lt. Gordon found that his only ally against the mob-controlled Gotham police department was the fledgling Batman, although he was forced to keep their working relationship out of the public eye whenever possible. Gordon is able to contact Batman with the Bat-Signal, and usually meets with him on the rooftop of Gotham City Police Headquarters.


  • Throughout his career James Gordon has been known as the Commish; Jim Gordon; Sgt. Gordon; Lt. Gordon; Captain Gordon.
  • In Batman Beyond, her daughter, Barbara became a new commissioner after his death. In Injustice: Gods Among Us in Batgirl's ending, he was killed by the Regime for aiding the Insurgency.
