James "Jimmy" Peake, a.k.a. Jazzman, was a gangster in Gotham City. Though not a typical "theme" villain, he did have the odd eccentricity of using a lot of music-related terms in his speech.


The crime mastermind known as Jazzman was a resident crime boss of Gotham City. Batman had promised to be at a raid against him, but arrives late to find a gun battle going on. He helps defeat the gangsters and arrest the Jazzman, but at a high cost, Commissioner Gordon is severely wounded by a gunshot from Jazzman. The crook broke out of Stonegate Penitentiary to finish the job, but was caught by Batman before he was able to.
