Gotham City was founded on the eastern coast of the United States by early settlers from Europe. In 1898 Ra's al Ghul and his son Arkady Duvall attempted to destroy the fledgling transcontinental railroad and seize control of the US government in a coup d'etat. However they were stopped by renegade bounty hunter, Jonah Hex. Decades later, Bruce Wayne is born in Gotham City and sees his parents murdered before him. He vows to fight injustice and after decades of training he donned the mantle of Batman and protected the people of his home city for decades.
