The Prankster is back, for a story that plays on the outrageous promises in advertising, by Cameron, Win Mortimer and Kaye.

The set up offers a nice glimpse of advertising from the late 1940s.

The Prankster sets up his own booths, giving away drugged perfume, drugged drinks and such, robbing his patrons.

Superman sets up a billboard of his own, promoting an energy drink that would turn someone into Superman.  He knows the Prankster will take the bait.  Superman turns the tables on him with the drink, and takes the Prankster down.
