Synopsis:
The Prankster starts his day with a new client, Nitro G, who wants to hire him. The Prankster now is in business of creating distractions so other criminals can commit crimes undisturbed. He is especially fond of pranking Superman, and gives a discount if Superman is involved. Nitro G successfully pulls a bank job, but wants to do more. He wants Prankster's sticky guns, and threatens Prankster until he agrees. Prankster doesn't want people hurt, he's really in it for the artistry. He sets up Nitro G, getting him covered in nitro and dynamite. He arranges for Superman to be there in time to rescue Nitro G, but by pulling Nitro G's fuse, Superman triggers the bomb, and has to fly him off to disarm it. When Superman returns, the gang has been captured, and Nitro G stripped down to his underwear, suitably embarrassed. The Prankster has left, proving his point to not mess with him.

Indexer Notes

Bessolo Boulevard is an homage to George Reeve's real last name; the Binder Street MetroBank Branch is an homage to Otto Binder, a former Superman writer.
