Batman and Jimmy Olsen

Ah, the Silver Age - when even supporting characters could hold their own series. I have to admit that most of the reason I identified with Superman's Pal was that I too was a goofy freckled redheaded kid. I did like that he was an amateur master of disguises and his stories were usually more about humorous situations than any real peril.

I used a Curt Swan Jimmy Olsen cover for this one, to me he is the quintessential Superman artist of the Silver Age. Here's a page by him that I picked up because I liked how it depicted Superman using so many of his different abilities:

You may not remember - but at one point Jimmy was among the few who knew Bruce Wayne was Batman.
