Powers/Abilities: The Trickster used a variety of gadgets. As well as the aforementioned giant robot, the "Taunting Titan", and "Brain-Men" he was also seen to use money treated to emit a sleeping gas, a costume that would extend poisonous quills and grenades filled with a blinding dust. He could magnetise his costume so as to, for example, snatch guns out of enemies' hands. His gadgets tended to be bizarre, fitting with his insane mind.
History: The Trickster is an arch-enemy of Gadgetman and Gimmick-Kid. Described by them as "the wildest, weirdest, whackiest of all the villainous masters of gadgetry we've ever fought", he used giant robots and artificial "Brain-Men" as part of his arsenal of tricks.
