Gotham City is a hugh modern metropolis with a skyline littered with glistening, glass skyscrapers and buildings. Sadly, because of the rampant and recurring corruption within the city's civil authorities and infrastructure, most notably within the Gotham City Police Department, Gotham is often mistakenly seen as a dark and foreboding metropolis rife with crime, grime and corruption. When in actuality, there is a very cool, vibrant side to Gotham.
Nevertheless, the city's energy and excitement to this day continues to draws people to live and visit there. The city is also home to Bruce Wayne.
Gotham City is under the protection of Batman and his proteges from the criminally insane supervillains, gangs, and mobs that litter its streets.
