Friday Night Fights: KAPOW!! Round 7 - Don't call him "Chief"!

Round 7 of Friday Night Fights: KAPOW!! begins with a question:

From whom did Superman learn how to throw a mean right uppercut?

- Batman?

- Wonder Woman?

- Pa Kent?

- Ted "Wildcat" Grant?

WRONG! It was this guy:


From the classic tale "Jimmy Olsen, Editor-In-Chief!" by Leo Dorfman and Curt Swan, featured in JIMMY OLSEN#63. It's your timeless Silver-Age "Jimmy somehow becomes Perry's boss and acts like a real dick to Perry but he's really trying to save Perry's life or help him pass his physical or some sickly-sweet ulterior motive" tale.

Rube Goldberg would have found Jimmy's methods overly complicated.

Boy, Lois is pretty bloodthirsty there as well!

Jimmie's plots are ALWAYS too complicated.
