"...I tricked them..."
—Trickster to Flash

"The Trickster" is a psychotic criminal from Earth Three who had a bitter hatred for Jay Garrick/The Flash.


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 until The Flash showed up to stop him. The Trickster opened fire at the Flash, 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 until another Flash appeared to saved them both. Though he was initially bewildered over "seeing double", the Trickster, believing the Flash hit him too hard, started ranting over how he was going to claim the Flash's helmet before being taken away by the police.[1]
