Jim Gordon was an honest cop who distrusted the Green Lantern because of his near-limitless power.

Green Lantern later came to him in order to find the identity of the man who killed his parents (without divulging his identity). Initially refusing, Gordon eventually relented and went over the files and narrowed it down, but he was then interrupted and killed by Sinestro, who ruptured his heart.


James Gordon is proficient in all aspects of criminal detective work and police procedural matters. He also has a keen instinct in regards to the political aspects of managing the Gotham City Police Department. In his youth, Gordon served in the United States military and was trained in hand-to-hand combat. By his own account, his martial prowess was honed to the point that he could defeat a Green Beret in physical combat.
