John Sikela handles the Prankster story in Action 95 (April 1946), in which the Prankster nearly succeeds in driving Superman to quit.

The Prankster’s goal is to continuously publicly humiliate Superman, but using intermediaries, so that Superman will not realize that it’s a plan.

The Prankster gets away with it a few times, undermining Superman’s self-confidence.  After getting a pie int he face at a ceremony meant to honour him, Superman decides to hang up his cape, and announces his retirement, as the city doesn’t love him anymore.

Later, once he gets a grip on himself, Superman figures out the Prankster’s scheme, and goads him into confessing onstage.

Sikela’s art on the Prankster is a bit odd.  He doesn’t look quite right.
