Orville Gump disguised as Jimmy Olsen

James Jacob Olsen was cub-reporter and photographer for the Daily Planet in the '60s and '70s. He was Superman's pal, and a close friend of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

Once, Lex Luthor's henchman Orville Gump, disguised himself as Jimmy Olsen so as to fool Lois Lane.[1] At some point, Jimmy has a son, James Bartholomew Olsen. His son eventually follows in his footsteps and becomes a cub-reporter at the Daily Planet after Jake Olsen moves on.[2]

  1. As seen in Lex Luthor Strikes Back (1978).
  2. This is conjecture based on the fact that in the Superman cartoon, Jimmy is still portrayed as a teenager, twenty years after his appearances in the '60s. By assuming that he is actually a different "Jimmy" rather than the original Jimmy, one can eliminate that incongruity. And the conjecture that he is a different Jimmy is not too far fetched, since the in the comics both Jimmy and his father were named "James."
