  • Jimmy Olsen, also known as "The man of a thousand mutations', is an unfortunate photographer from the Daily Planet. He is very accident prone, and has had to have Superman save him on multiple occasions, mostly due to transformations that left him with awkward yet hilarious mutations. Most of his powers were temporary, but one, an ability that not even Superman can fix, causes him to turn into a woman on Friday nights.
  • Jimmy Olsen is "Superman's best friend" and the second best known character from the hero's supporting cast. He was created for the Superman radio show in 1940, mainly as someone for Superman to talk with (besides Lois Lane, who was both a woman/LoveInterest and sometimes rather contrary) so he could explain things to the audience indirectly. Jimmy was later introduced in the comics themselves. The description of the Superpower Silly Putty trope features Jimmy Olsen, and for a reason! That trope could have perfectly be changed to "The Jimmy Olsen" and nobody would have really noticed.
  • Jimmy Olsen ( b. 1927 ) is a fictional character in the Superman series published by DC Comics. Olsen is normally depicted as an angry, Irish drunk who works at the Holy Bible with Superman, and hates his fucking guts for no apparent reason. It was often hinted at by some of the less talented Superman scribes that there was a love triangle between Superman, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen, however regular continuity maintains that Olsen hates Lois just as much as he hates Superman, and only sleeps with her out of spite.
  • James Bartholomew "Jimmy" Olsen is a fictional character, a photojournalist who appears mainly in DC Comics’ Superman stories. An unnamed "office boy" with a bow tie makes a brief appearance in Action Comics #6, which is claimed to be Jimmy Olsen's first appearance in Superman: The Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel. The character was first introduced as Jimmy Olsen in the radio show The Adventures of Superman (on April 15, 1940). Jimmy's name was used in the comic for the first time in Superman v1 #13 (1941). Along with his appearances in current Superman titles (Superman and Action Comics), he was one of the main protagonists in DC Comics' weekly series Countdown.
  • 2006: Jimmy Olsen debuted alongside Colin Olsen as the Olsen Twins at the late 2006 tag team tournament to decide new Campeonatos challengers, but the two lost in the opening round to Cheech and Cloudy. This performance would earn them a regular spot on the CHIKARA roster. 2009: The year began with the formal announcement of Lince, Jimmy and Helios as a full-time unit in CHIKARA, dubbed The Future Is Now. Things got even better for Olsen when he finally vanquished Vin Gerard, this time in a ladder match, to become the new CHIKARA Young Lions Cup Champion.

  • Jimmy Olsen is a journalist for the Daily Planet newspaper in Metropolis.
  • Jimmy Olsen is a supporting protagonist in the Superman series. His nickname is Superman's Pal.
  • Jimmy Olsen is "Superman's best friend" and the second best known character from the hero's supporting cast. He was created for the Superman radio show in 1940, mainly as someone for Superman to talk with (besides Lois Lane, who was both a woman/LoveInterest and sometimes rather contrary) so he could explain things to the audience indirectly. Jimmy was later introduced in the comics themselves. An anonymous character who looked like Jimmy turned up as early as "Action Comics" #6 (November, 1938). But the first actual comic book appearance for Mr. Olsen was "Superman" #13 (November-December, 1941). Presumably, he was also created as an Audience Surrogate for the show's fans, who were mostly young boys. Jimmy also has some resemblance to Archie (who was also very popular at the time) in that both were impulsive but well-meaning red-haired, freckled teenagers. They even dressed alike, including wearing bowties! Jimmy works as a photographer for the Daily Planet, which is an excuse for him to accompany the intrepid reporters Lois and Clark in their adventures without being one himself. However, he has absolutely no problem getting into far more trouble and sent on far more bizarre adventures than he seeks out, and his unique status, which since Crisis on Infinite Earths has almost taken the form of a Running Gag, is the fact that he is possibly the single most powerful Weirdness Magnet in the entire DC Universe (and in this respect is often compared to The Avengers' ally Rick Jones from Marvel). Jimmy became so popular he actually starred in his own comic book series, the humorous Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen. Which lasted for 163 issues, from September, 1954 to March, 1974. This series is better remembered today for the amount of bizarre transformations Jimmy underwent in many of its stories. However those were only part of the wackiness featured in the series, which ranged from romantic problems with his girlfriend Lucy Lane (Lois' sister) to temporarily adopting his own superhero identity (several different ones in fact.) The description of the Superpower Silly Putty trope features Jimmy Olsen, and for a reason! That trope could have perfectly be changed to "The Jimmy Olsen" and nobody would have really noticed. Jimmy owned a supersonic wristwatch that he used to summon Superman whenever he wanted (only Superman could hear its buzzing). The hero must have regretted giving it to him, as Jimmy either called him to ask mundane favors, or needed help from problems he constantly got himself into (including trying to arrest criminals on his own) on the assumption that Superman would come and save him. Maybe it was because of this that, like Lois, Jimmy often was a target of Superman's surprisingly mean sense of humor. And yet, Superman never took the wristwatch away. (Actually, it was the Silver Age of comics, and many of DC's stories back then were sold on the basis of bizarre or unexpected turn of events- though Jimmy's were certainly the most varied of all.) Jimmy's series lasted into the 1970s, when, as with Lois, DC tried to make him a more modern, believable character. He got a new set of clothes (loooong after Archie had stopped using his own similar set) and had adventures that didn't involve Superman or zany plots. He even picked up the nickname "Mister Action" (despite not starring in DC's Action Comics). Ironically, the weirdness came back with a vengeance when, of all people, Jack Kirby came along to write and draw the series. Kirby, fresh off Marvel Comics, decided to take this series as there was no assigned staff at the time, so he wouldn't cost anyone his job. With the clean slate, Kirby used the series to launch his New Gods saga (which means that, yes, Darkseid debuted in this title!) Kirby also used the series to bring back his own, older creations, the Newsboy Legion (both as adult scientists AND as their teenage clones) and the superhero The Guardian. On top of that, he also invented the DNA Project (known now as Cadmus) that would later have an impact on characters such as Superboy with their cloning techniques. Oh, and in case you think he forgot about Jimmy, he added one more transformation to the character's collection: "Homo Tremendus", i.e. Jimmy as a berserking caveman! After Kirby's departure, Jimmy's title was combined with Lois' to create Superman Family in which Jimmy's stories became more realistic urban crime adventures. In them, the crooks are usually Genre Savvy enough to remove his signal-watch, forcing him to rely more on his own wits. Fortunately, Jimmy is more than up to the task as a two-fisted Intrepid Reporter. Jimmy's role has since waned over the decades; while he still appears in most versions of Superman, his role as best friend has effectively been taken over by Lois, as she not only is more agreeable, but is now *married* to Superman. Besides, most writers seem to recall Jimmy more for his silly adventures than for his serious ones. His last major story arc (which took place in the much-maligned Countdown to Final Crisis series) had him apparently gaining all the powers he had during his Silver Age series, but out of his control; it was eventually revealed that the reason was because Darkseid had chosen him as the vessel of the energy for the dying New Gods... for some reason.) However, Jimmy recently got his own mini-series, starting as a co-feature in Action Comics, before getting canceled, and later reprinted with the storyline complete. In fact, it was praised as one of the best series' of the year, and deeper delving into Jimmy's character, particularly his Genre Savviness about his cosmic plaything status, has yielded surprisingly solid results. This storyline also finally introduced the popular Smallville character Chloe Sullivan into official DC Comics continuity, and paired the two fellow Canon Immigrants (Chloe from Smallville, Jimmy from the radio serials) together. This renewed interest in the character just goes to show, Jimmy is likely to remain a part of the Superman Mythos forever.

  • Jimmy Olsen ( b. 1927 ) is a fictional character in the Superman series published by DC Comics. Olsen is normally depicted as an angry, Irish drunk who works at the Holy Bible with Superman, and hates his fucking guts for no apparent reason. Throughout most of the 60s, 70s and 80s Olsen enjoyed popularity in his own comic book, Drunk, Pissed Off, Irish Newsman, however in the early 90s it was renamed to Alcohol Dependant, Irish American Newsperson with Anger Management Issues to conform to the political correctness of the time and sales plummeted. Alcohol Dependant, Irish American Newsperson with Anger Management Issues was cancelled in 1992, and Jimmy Olsen was soon re-introduced into Superman continuity with issues Adventures of Superman#475, the beginning of the Fighting Irish story arc. It was often hinted at by some of the less talented Superman scribes that there was a love triangle between Superman, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen, however regular continuity maintains that Olsen hates Lois just as much as he hates Superman, and only sleeps with her out of spite.
  • Jimmy Olsen is a young photojournalist working for the Daily Planet. He is close friends with Lois Lane, Clark Kent, Superman and Perry White; all of whom he looks up to as role models and parental figures.
  • 2006: Jimmy Olsen debuted alongside Colin Olsen as the Olsen Twins at the late 2006 tag team tournament to decide new Campeonatos challengers, but the two lost in the opening round to Cheech and Cloudy. This performance would earn them a regular spot on the CHIKARA roster. 2007: The Olsens returned for a baptism of fire at King of Trios, as Colin and Jimmy were brutalized at the hands of Yoshiaki Yago and MIYAWAKI. They achieved their first CHIKARA win during a gauntlet match on night 3 of that weekend by beating 2.0 in 4 seconds during a Tag Team Gauntlet. Unfortunately, this would prove to be one of their only wins, with another coming at Young Lions Cup when they upset the North Star Express. They would begin teaming occasionally teaming with NWA Upstate colleague Brodie Lee in trios matches, often tackling The Colony, and their adventures in tag team wrestling saw even more enthralling contests with Cheech and Cloudy, including a widely praised match at the “Cibernetico & Robin” event. 2008: Colin’s signing with the WWE in early 2008 forced Jimmy into full-time singles wrestling, which he proved to be rather good at, defeating the likes of Icarus and Player Uno while taking Vin Gerard and Gran Akuma to the limit. However, a first round loss to Stupefied in the Young Lions Cup - and Vin Gerard revealing where Colin had really gone - caused Jimmy to turn against the fans who had grown to love him as he began to unmask several wrestlers, seemingly hunting for Colin. However, when Colin returned in September, Jimmy declared his hunt for Colin to be over, and thus ending his grudge against any masked wrestlers. This did not end well though as Colin determined that Jimmy had become weak, and as a result Colin turned on his brother and joined the UnStable. Now firmly back in the tecnico camp, Jimmy looks to gain adequate revenge on the rudos who tricked him and betrayed him. He formed a successful tag team with former foe Lince Dorado, and has recently donned the old Equinox attire in an effective attempt to get into the head of Vin Gerard. 2009: The year began with the formal announcement of Lince, Jimmy and Helios as a full-time unit in CHIKARA, dubbed The Future Is Now. Things got even better for Olsen when he finally vanquished Vin Gerard, this time in a ladder match, to become the new CHIKARA Young Lions Cup Champion.
  • James "Jimmy" Olsen, Jr. was a bow red-haired young man who worked as a cub reporter and photographer for the Daily Planet, alongside Lois Lane and Clark Kent, whom he idolizes as career role models. He also has a strong friendship with Superman and Supergirl.
