Type: Body switch
Jimmy and Bill cross paths AGAIN when Superman's Pal visits the Congo branch of his famous fan club, who have heard rumors of a villainous plot called "Project Kryptonite". Bill gives him a lead and the magic ring; a broken arm keeps him from participating himself. I guess having an ape drive your body can lead to accidents.
And that's how Jimmy stole another DC hero's shtick.
Contest of a Sort Results!
Last Monday, I asked you guys, across several platforms, to suggest which Jimmy Olsens should be covered before the end of 2015. I received 9 suggestions, and realizing that I already had a Christmas story prepped for Dec. 26th anyway, that's enough! So here's what you can expect, in no particular order, for the rest of this year's Snapshots:
Congorilla (you've already seen it, what did you think?)
Jimmy Olsen from Jupiter (from Jimmy Olsen #32)
Mr. Action (from Countdown)
Accountable/Doctor Impossible (from the New52's Earth2)
Computer-Brain Jimmy (from Jimmy Olsen #86)
The Human Octopus (from Jimmy Olsen #41)
Jimmy the Genie (from Jimmy Olsen #42)
Old Man Jimmy/Santa Claus (from Jimmy Olsen #66)
Hopefully you favorite got in before the end!
