Superman's Best Friend, Pulitzer-Prize-Winning photojournalist


World-wide recognition


Jimmy's mom was a fact checker for a metropolitan newspaper, and he grew up to regard the truth as a precious thing. He always had the desire to be a reporter or detective of some sorts, and so he got a job in the industry at the earliest possible moment - he started in the Planet mail room at 12 after school, running errands and such. By the time he was 15 he'd made a splash with fantastic photos of Superman in action, as well as other major stories, and he'd started his involvement with the superhero community when Superman gave him his signal watch. In the years since then, he's proven himself over and over again until he's now a trusted and permanent member of the Planet's elite staff, the youngest person to ever win a Pultizer, and the best pal of the world's mightiest hero.

Character Details

Jimmy is a brave and bold young man who has made it his life's mission to get to the truth of things, through letting the entire world know about what goes on behind closed doors. He's willing to run off to Indonesia on a whim, but he can sit in an editing bay for days, putting together a memorable peice on the homeless situation. He's the best most loyal friend anyone could ever want.
