Is Gotham City Real? The City Of Batman!!

The Batman movie fans must have been mastered the history of Bruce Wayne’s story, but they might not have gone through the history of Gotham city. Those who have never opened this subject then let me tell you the history of the city is quite interesting.

Gotham city was founded in 1635 by the Norwegian mercenary Captain Jon Lagerquist, later taken by Britishers and became the big site for major battles. Years later, Alan Wayne (Bruce Wayne ancestors), Edward Elliot (Thomas Elliot’s ancestor), and Theodore Cobblepot (Oswald Cobblepot ancestors) became the founding father of Gotham and constructed the Gates of Gotham.

After the battles, the city became the sin place where some of the American founding fathers summoned a bat demon, and its influence started spreading to the whole town. That was not the end because the comics revealed that a Ra’s al Ghul released a deadly virus in the town. However, when the people of the city started recovering, a major earthquake hit the city that made the government cut the Gotham city from the US.

For me, writing is something that helps me escape from reality for a while. Even though I am an Engineer, I find my comfort from chaos while I write. I love telling people about my stories, stories that play in my mind only. When I am writing, there is no limit to how far I can go swimming in this deep ocean of words. Reading and writing are the two things that help in organizing my messed up thoughts in a formative way. Come along on this journey with me as I write and you read the stories that I have to tell!
