Starting his term in office on a platform overseeing the efforts the Gotham City Police Department and new district attorney Harvey Dent on ridding the streets of organized crime, he was even impressed on seeing Batman as useful for helping enforce the law in such task, but had a task force within the police department investigate the vigilante's theatrical taste and true identity as a means of learning something about him.

Garcia was later chosen to be personally assassinated by the Joker during Commissioner Gillian Loeb's memorial service, but Lt. Jim Gordon pushed him out of the way of the gunshot, taking the bullet instead. For all of Gordon's diligent work, and as top candidate to succeed Loeb, Garcia appointed him the new police commissioner in the MCU jail.

The Dark Knight RisesEdit

Eight years after the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Mayor Garcia is rumored by a Congressman to be planning on retiring Commissioner Jim Gordon from his position in the force due to the time of peace. Following Gordon's hospitalization by Bane, Mayor Garcia attended a football game, where Bane initiated a "revolution" in Gotham. It started by setting off a bomb in the private booth where Mayor Garcia and several other politicians were viewing the game from and the blast killed the mayor and all the politicians. Even till his death, Garcia never knew the truth about Harvey Dent. The truth of Harvey Dent's actions were eventually revealed by Bane himself, who stormed Blackgate prison, and read documents obtained from Jim Gordon which is a written confession by the police commissioner as well as a letter of resignation. In the past, Garcia was determined to never repeal the Dent Act while in office, but it is unknown if he would have done other-wise if he had known what Harvey Dent has done before his death.
