History

The Tobacconists' Club was an exclusive Gentlemen's club located in Gotham City. City councilman Rupert Thorne often used the club to conduct underworld activities.[1]

After Thorne's arrest,[2] the Club members started seeking a new crimeboss and the first candidate was Squid, a former spy turned gangster.[3] However, Squid was murdered by Killer Croc, a powerful juggernaut who sought to become the new criminal leader of the Gotham underworld and tried to seize the Club by force.[4]

The leader of the Club at the time, Filbert Hughes III, had hoped that the number one crimelord in Gotham, Tony Falco would get out of prison in time to claim back his territory from Croc, but Croc murdered Falco while in prison, forcing the Club to deal with Croc. Because of their connections to Croc, Batman interrogated Hughes III,[5] but it was Robin who managed to learn the truth from the crooked businessman.[6]
