GothCorp, the People Company, is a Gotham City-based corporation, hence the name. It appears to primarily be a technology firm. Two of its major investors were Bruce Wayne and Grant Walker. During the tenure of Ferris Boyle as CEO, GothCorp excelled in the field of cryogenics headed by researchers Dr. Victor Fries and Dr. Gregory Belson. However, it left the company $3 million in debt. Boyle shut down Fries work only to discover he was using company resources to save his wife, Nora, who was stricken with an incurable disease. In the incident, Fries was doused in coolant and rendered immortal. Months later, in August, Fries, now Mr. Freeze, attacked GothCorp and Boyle to get his revenge but was defeated by Batman.
Years later, during New Year's Eve, the Joker killed a GothCorp researcher named Dr. John Erikson and stole his hypersonic project and hid it in the Gotham Square countdown bell. At the strike of midnight, thousands would be killed. Fortunately, Batman and Robin saved the New Year. A short time later, GothCorp Labs elected to restore Livewire to her normal human form. However, during transportation, she escaped and teamed up with Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. After the Judge began investigating his political backer, J. Caroll Corcoran, he discovered the councilman was being bribed by GothCorp and dispensed justice.
