Contest of Sorts: The Last 10 Jimmy Olsens

Last Saturday, my 42nd Snapshot of Jimmy Olsen dropped on the blog. Full disclosure: I'm not sticking with Jimmy in 2016 - I've got something else planned - so 52 is the magic number (isn't it always?). There are only TEN (10) Jimmies left.

And I want them to be the Jimmies YOU want to see. And this is the post that allows you to leave a comment (or a tweet, or a Facebook/Google+ reply) to tell me just who these might be.

I know I've done a lot of Silver Age stuff, not all of it good or memorable, but that's not the only focus. You can also suggest Jimmies from Elseworlds, other media, and from any era of the comics. Maybe you want to tell us why your favorite Jimmy is worthy of inclusion. Maybe you want to throw your vote towards someone else's suggestion. There are no rules, and there are no prizes, except for seeing your Jimmy included before I throw away my flip calendar in favor of a new one.

Results this Saturday!

Can I be a wiseass and vote for this one?

You're off the map, sir!

I was going to suggest the post-Crisis versions of Elastic Lad and Turtle Boy, but a refresher trip through the archives shows you gave them as about much attention as they deserved.

So how about his late-90's time as a TV reporter for WGBS using the "Mr. Action" nickname?

Siskoid said...

Adding it to the list!

You mean you haven't profiled "The Jimmy Olsen from Jupiter", in SP,JO #32?

Not yet! There are so many crazy Jimmies, I know I was forgetting some. That's exactly why I'm launching a contest (of sorts)! Thank you!
