However, the movies never really focused on Jimmy Olsen as much more than a bit part and a one-dimensional character. You never saw in the movies where Jimmy Olson lived, who he dated, or any background development at all. Movie Jimmy was really just a device so Clark and Lois had someone to talk to when the other one was not around.


Bingo. You've just summed up Jimmy Olson in my mind. Even Timm didn't seem to know what to do with him in the Superman cartoon.

Maybe it's the Smallville fan in me, but I always thought Chloe Sullivan was light years better as a character than Jimmy. "Superman's Pal" doesn't really need to exist anymore. Neither does Krypto, but that's another story. :wink:

BTW Ricky, Peewee is a bit harsh. I'd just rather look at pretty women then geeky beta males like Jimmy. I don't think that's a crime (yet). :P

Uhh Shellhead don't you know it's a lot more prestigious in the geek world to show everyone how smart you are with your analysis of comics and movies then it is to look at women (or men if that is your thing or for the ladies reading)? Geez man...come on this is geekdom 101 :)

Can't you just return it to the store?



When I say I live in the middle of no where, I really mean I live in the middle of no where.

Can I return it? Sure, but driving up just to do it would cost me more in gas than it's worth it.


The big point here is I shouldn't have to return it. For what they cost, it shouldn't happen. And it happens, a lot.



True, but you have 90 days to return it. You're not going to make another trip to a Target store within the next 3 months?

I stopped buying DC stuff from Mattel with that final JLU 3-pack. Their build-a-figure and build-an-accessory waves completely turned me against them (after all the JLU nonsense over the years). It took me forever to track down all the pieces to make the Hall of Justice (Young Justice) and Bat-Signal (Dark Knight Rises).

Personally, I don't need an Olson (Male or Female) in a Superman movie.

I couldn't care less about Jimmy.

No. I stand by my post. She's (according to her thing) in Long Island, NY, not Brittain (maybe she's from Brittain, I do not know). Technicalities don't count :)

Also

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/quire

That would make a whole lot less sense. And be more appropriate for the States ;)

You must be right, because the Americans spoke English first and the bestest. :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Ain't that right everybody?

Stand by your post all you want. It still doesn't change the meaning of my first post. :wink:
