The Slam Bradley wiki last edited by Nathan_Fleischman on 05/11/14 10:31PM View full history

Golden Age

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Slam loved to fight and was typically portrayed in the middle of one. His career was originally as a tough private detective. Slam often went undercover, as a teacher, a magician, a prizefighter and even a singer on the radio. His partner was an aggravating, buffoonish man named Shorty Morgan. Slam was not too original, he started out a slightly exaggerated version of Race Williams and other hard-boiled pulp detectives. Slam had many notable characteristics such as he was the first private eye to appear regularly in comic books, and he resembled Superman in features such as being tall, muscular, raven-haired and square-jawed and given his roots, that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Modern Age

Currently Slam is a private detective, in his late 50's, operating in Gotham City. He has one son working in the GCPD, Sam Bradley Jr. Slam was once a cop working for the GCPD but quit after watching years of corruption. He decided to open up his own detective agency because he still wanted to help but not within the confines of the corrupted police force.

In 2001 he was brought back to Gotham PD after a long hiatus to investigate the death of the Catwoman and is also the Grandfather of Helena Kyle, Catwoman's daughter.
