The Prankster was a short-lived comic book super hero who appeared in a series published by Charlton Comics. His only appearance was in the last issue of Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt, #60 in Nov/Dec 1967. He was created by writer Dennis O'Neil and artist Jim Aparo, and is considered O'Neil's first creation,

The Prankster is a freedom fighter in a repressive dystopia called Ultrapolis. Here love, laughter, music, art, and every other expression of human dignity can be a crime punishable by death. So the Prankster fights back with bizarre weapons such as laughing gas, a jet-powered hot-air balloon, and a magic flute.

A second story was promised, but never appeared. It does not appear that the Prankster was one of the Charlton "Action Heroes" picked up by DC Comics, so ownership of the character is unknown.
