"I told everyone inside I'd let them live if they followed my instructions. But I tricked them! Which is so me."
—The Trickster[src]

"The Trickster" is a psychopathic criminal from Earth-3 whose exploits were frequently opposed by Jay Garrick/The Flash.


Foiled by the Flashes

Trickster arrested after being defeated by the Flash of Earths 3 and 1.

While robbing a bank, the Trickster mused over how he lied to his victims that he'd let them live if they followed his instructions. Just then, The Flash showed up to stop him. The Trickster opened fire at the speedster, but his enemy quickly caught every bullet with his helmet. Handcuffing both himself and the Flash together, the Trickster attempted to set off a bomb to kill them both. Suddenly, another Flash appeared and disarmed the bomb before tying the Trickster up. Though he was initially bewildered over "seeing double", the Trickster, believing the Flash "hit [him] too hard", began ranting over how he was going to sue the Flash and claim his helmet before being taken away by the police.[1]
