Nygmobblepot Week: AU - 1920′s Prohibition

Oswald Cobblepot - The King of Gotham

Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a the Penguin is Gotham’s most notorious racketeer. When prohibition hit Gotham Oswald wasted no time in gaining control of the city’s illegal liquor trade, using his popular nightspot ‘The Iceberg Lounge’ as a front to hide his illegal activities behind. He remained untouchable to his rivals and the GCPD, securing his position as King of Gotham. Throughout all of his success the young gangster still lacked one thing, someone to share his success with. He did not anticipate the chance meeting with Edward Nygma, an unassuming young lecturer from Gotham University, to be the event that would change everything.
