The Prankster has a brand new idea in a crime detecting that works this way...” Morgan is a vaudevillian magician who accidentally stops a robbery with a “funny mask and a loaded water pistol.” Inspired by his success, he puts on a costume and begins using magician props (hand joy buzzer, flash powder, etc) to stop crime. He appears in “The Prank of Death” and “Adventure of the Sudden Scream.”
