James Jesse was a member of The Rogues, a gathering of criminals in Central City aimed for the purpose of destroying The Flash, operating under the identity of the Trickster. He teamed up with Captain Boomerang, Captain Cold, and Mirror Master mostly as a tag-along rather than as a serious villain, since hardly anybody among them even listens to him or his ideas. Unfortunately, he was left alone to face the Flash, Batman, and Orion at a bar that The Rogues usually frequented when they were seeking information on the other three villains' whereabouts. The Flash calmly talked to the Trickster, getting him to see that he was not taking his medications, and soon the Trickster divulges that the other three villains are going to ambush him at the opening of the Flash Museum. Before departing, the Flash tells Trickster to turn himself in after he has finished with his drink.
