Gillian B. Loeb was the corrupt GCPD commissioner, until he was fired and replaced by James Gordon.

HistoryEdit

Gillain makes his first appearance in Frank Miller's Batman: Year One as the corrupt Gotham City Police Commissioner who was on the payroll of mob boss Carmine Falcone and had hired Lieutenant James Gordon. Loeb originally took no action against Batman, as he was only targeting low level criminals at the time, and he gave the public "false" hope. This changed when Batman attacked a party organised by Falcone in which Loeb was in attendence, where he publicly declared he would bring them to justice.

The enraged Loeb sent armies of officers to capture Batman, but his attempts failed to bring the vigilante to "justice". When Gordon began assisting the Caped Crusader, Loeb attempted to blackmail him with evidence of the former's affair with Sgt. Sarah Essen, but Gordon confessed his infidelity to his wife Barbara. Later, Batman, Harvey Dent, and Gordon revealed to the public of Loeb's workings with Falcone's mob, so Loeb was forced to resign in disgrace. He was replaced by Jack Grogan, who was just as corrupt as his predececessor; Gordon would become police commissioner a few years later.

In Batman: Dark Victory, Loeb sided with the Hangman Killer in the hopes of disgracing Gordon and regaining his former position. Hangman ultimately turned on Loeb, however, and killed him.

In the New 52 continuity, during Batman: Zero Year (the New 52 remake of Batman: Year One) Loeb did start as corrupt, but after the event, he chose to resign after learning that Black Mask had killed some his men because he felt responsible for allowing his department to become too corrupt.
