On This Day: The Trickster!
Giovanni Giuseppe was a con artist and circus acrobat before he decided to turn to a life of crime. He changed his name to James Jesse and created several clever but dangerous gag devices and a pair of shoes that let him walk on air.
Calling himself the Trickster, James embarked upon his new career, only to encounter and be defeated by the Flash. The two clashed frequently throughout the years.
For a brief period, the Trickster reformed and worked with the FBI, but he later reverted to his criminal ways.
