Detective Harvey Bullock is a constant presence in the Gotham City Police Department. A genuinely ill-mannered person, Bullock uses his badge as an excuse to bend the rules and solve a case. Unlike his comrades on the force, Bullock views Batman as a menace to society and would use any chance to try and arrest him. Bullock is not without his own jaded past. Though he started out normal enough, as a rookie beat cop, Bullock made legions of enemies in both the criminal underworld and GCPD's Internal Affairs. Around the same time Batman appeared in Gotham, Bullock was promoted to Detective and soon after, two years later, made one of his bigger arrests. He managed to arrest drug dealer, Vinnie the Shark which cost Vinnie his ascension in the underworld hierarchy.

More recently, in about the eighth year of Batman's campaign, Bullock arrested Spider Conway, a criminal linked to Rupert Thorne. The collar had the potential to take down Thorne but Conway falsely implicated Bullock of taking bribes to look the other way. To say the least, that was the start of Bullock's tumultous relationship with Internal Affairs. Around the same time, Bullock busted a small time crook named Croc Morgan. Croc Morgan, later known as Killer Croc, would eventually try to get his revenge on Bullock but failed. After years of work, Bullock received a death threat that he couldn't shake off. Always occurring near his apartment, Bullock decided to enlist Batman for help despite his hatred for the hero. Unfortunately, it wasn't a mobster out for revenge, but his own landlord driven insane by Bullock.

Bullock was present in Commissioner Gordon's office when Scarface threatened to blow up the city with 50 pounds of CX-8000. Mayor Hill refused to negotiate with a puppet. Bullock told him to cool it on account it wasn't the Muppet Show. After Batman secured the Ventriloquist, Bullock interrogated him at GCPD headquarters. Bullock told Wesker he didn't want to be messed with and demanded to location of the other 50 pounds of CX-8000. Wesker insisted Scarface only told his henchman Sluggsy where to hide it. Bullock wasn't buying the dual personality act and grabbed him by the shirt. Wesker admitted Scarface made him wear earplugs when he told Sluggsy where to hide the explosives. Renee Montoya entered the room and revealed none of Scarface's gang survived but the doll was found. Bullock took Scarface out and made Wesker take it so they could get answers. Scarface assumed Wesker was snitching on him and clocked Bullock then smacked Wesker around. Batman removed Scarface and the interrogation ended.
