Arkham City Bio
Police Commissioner James W. Gordon dedicated his career to clearing up the corruption in the Gotham City Police Department, a goal he has come a long way towards accomplishing.
He has been equally tough on crime and in the pursuit of making Gotham Citysafe for all it's citizens. gordon has forged an uneasy alliance with Gotham's other top crime fighter, the mysterious vigilante known as Batman.
In the wake of Mayor Sharpe's establishment of Arkham City and TYGER guards assuming most law-enforcement roles, Gordon has been increasingly marginalised - but he remains an ally of the Batman.

Image

Additional Information
Gotham City has taken it's toll on Jim Gordon. Since he transferred from Chicago as a Lieutenant, Jim has seen his wife take his son with her as they seperated, gained a daughter in his niece Barbara and seen her crippled by the Joker and been made a widower as Joker killed his second wife.
Through all that he has remained true to the city and to his ally in the war on crime, Batman.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Though Gordon had a minimal role in Arkham City, it would seem obvious that he will have a larger part in a game that moves into Gotham itself. Acting as Batman's key contact, Gordon could be a 'task master', who offers the player optional mission as well as guiding Batman down the main story.

Essential reading
Batman: Year One, Gordon's Law, The Killing Joke, Officer Down, Black Mirror

Chances of appearing in Arkham3
8/10

I love Gordon. Like you said, he'd be a great task master.

Good stuff Red_Robin. I didn't know Barbara was really his niece. Never really put two and two together, but it makes sense.

It would be very cool to see the bat symbol and go to it and Commissioner Gordon is actually waiting for you there atop the GCPD roof, or you crawl through his office window. I hope they include a lot more of him the third time out. He could definitely release certain side missions to you.

If Gotham will burn just as Azrael predicts, then it would make sense to expect Gordon to play a role again.

PS. I've always thought Barbara was Gordon's daughter! :I

Whilst their relationship is pretty much father/daughter, she was actually his niece, adopted after the death of his brother. See Robin: Year One, Batgirl: Year One, the fact that she is older than James Jr, but not present in Year One, Long Halloween etc etc

I genuinely never knew Barbara was his ADOPTIVE daughter...

But anyhow, they need more Gordon in A3, I think he has a lot more potential. I like the idea of him being like a 'mission hub' sorta character where new side missions are available throughout the game.

Chances of appearing: 3.5/10

Role: I dont even know. He was pointless in AC. I expected way more. Sadly, I cant see much of him unless hes a main asset to Batman.

Im actually shocked that people didnt know that Barbara is Gordons adoptive daughter
And you call yourselves fans....... :oldyella:
And Id say his chance of appearing is basically 10/10
The real question is really to the length of his appearence and the extent of his usefulness
