  • Notes

    • The Prankster (real name: Oswald Loomis, although in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman his name is Kyle Griffin) first appeared in Action Comics #51 in August 1942. The Prankster's particular gimmick was the use of various practical jokes and gags in committing his crimes. This, coupled with his cartoonish appearance, caused many to write him off as a "joke villain", until the early 2000s, when writers improved upon the character by giving him a more svelte appearance, as well as high tech weaponry that made him a more serious threat.
