Event Synopsis

Overview

The Prohibition Era in the United States of America was time when there was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933. After the ban the Italian Americans who worked as an offshoot of the Italian Mafia took advantage of the situation and sold alcohol illegally for tremendous profit. They used acute violence to stake turf and protect their interest. Often, police officers and politicians were paid off or extorted to ensure continued operation. The term "Gangster" and "Mobster" was used to describe these people.

Events

Al Capone was one most infamous gangsters who rose to infamy as the leader of the Chicago Outfit during the Prohibition era.

It was during this time a mobster named Machine-Gun Martin escaped prison and was abducted by the Skrulls. The inhabitants of Kral IV, fascinated by gangsters culture, adopted it as their own.[1]

During this time the Canadian hero; Logan happened across a young vampire hunter named Eric Brooks in New York City, New York, and saved his life from a marauding vampire.[2]

St. Valentine's Day Massacre

The Punisher with the help of Reed Richards, travelled back in time to 1929, to kill Al Capone.[3]

Around this time, Logan worked as a bootlegger bringing hooch down from Canada to Chicago or Minnesota. He ran afoul of Al Capone, who was using Victor Creed as a hitman. Capone and Creed lured Logan to the site of the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre, which he barely survived.[4]

Logan had another encounter with rival bootleggers in Minnesota while working with his friend Elias from the Great War. Elias was killed by the mobsters and Logan tried to fulfill his last request of getting Elias' four kids to safety at their aunt's farm. In South Dakota, Logan was gifted with a motorcycle for his efforts protecting the kids, possibly his first motorcycle.[5]
