Part of a family of adventurers, Slam Bradley was a two-fisted private detective in the 1930s and 40s, who ventured together with his partner, "Shorty" Morgan. Together, they battled "Oriental menaces" as well as street criminals. They worked together with the police, federal investigators, fire departments, and law enforcement officers from all over the world. Decades later, "Shorty" was killed by drug dealers. In more recent years, the aged Slam joined a cadre of famous detectives (including Roy Raymond, Human Target, Captain Compass, and others) to solve the murder of their fellow detective Archie Evergreen.
Slam has resurfaced in Gotham City, recently hired by the mayor of Gotham City to track down the current whereabouts of Catwoman; once she revealed herself to him, he agreed not to divulge her location to the mayor and has developed a working relationship with her.
