James Gordon joins the police force of Gotham City, only to find that it's corrupt to it's very core. Bruce Wayne, a millionaire by inheritance returns to Gotham City, only to find it's infested with crime. Both men will stop at nothing to make a difference, Gordon by standing up to the powers-that-be in the G.C.P.D. and Wayne by disguising his appearance and waging a one-man war on crime. Both learn very quickly that the only way they'll succeed is by instilling fear in their enemies.
