Many folks aren’t aware that the CW’s “The Flash” isn’t the first time the scarlet speedster has graced prime time television.

In that series, the Flash’s most challenging foe was the Trickster, played by the manic Mark Hamill. Now Hamill returns, in the role that eventually won him fame as the Joker, in the newest episode of this series. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Tricksters!”
