DC Comics Villains Month: The Prankster In Nightwing

Bleeding Cool has been talking about the upcoming Villains Month from DC, where all the DC titles will introduce or reintroduce a villain to the New DCU.

We pretty much know that Batman, by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, is getting the Riddler as part of an Early Days Of Batman story, but what about the other titles?

I understand that Nightwing is getting Superman villain The Prankster.

Originally introduced in 1942, he commits crimes via practical jokes. He was reinvented in the eighties as an embittered children’s TV presenter, before becoming a more serious and unpredictable threat, working for Lord Satanus, and then Lex Luthor, and becomes a distraction-for-hire for super villain plots, offering discount for those that involve Superman…

Could this explain what on earth he’ll be doing in Gotham?

He’s also been appearing in the Smallville comic book.
