After an action-packed, eventful first season, it’s no surprise that fans are eagerly awaiting the second season of FOX’s hit series Gotham.  As James Gordon continues his fight to end corruption in a city of madness, some of DC’s deadliest villains are making their rise to power.  At the head of the pack is Oswald Cobblepot, also known as the Penguin, but others will stop at nothing to take his place.  Both the Riddler and the Joker have finally shown their true colors and it looks as if there are plenty more villains where that came from.  There are many things to look forward to going into the second season, but we’ve narrowed our list down to the top five.

Read on for the complete list and show us your own in the comments section below.  Enjoy!  Read the rest of this entry »
