DC Animated Universe

In an alternate dimension, Jimmy Olsen became a rebel against the rule of Lex Luthor and Superman following the death of Lois Lane.


Jimmy was devastated when he learned that Lois Lane had been killed by Intergang. He wasn't there himself, but he had seen crime photos. Superman lost it and teamed up with Lex Luthor to make a safer Metropolis. Jimmy didn't like it, and with many others, formed the resistance.

After a heist at a LexCorp research and development facility, Jimmy ran into another Lois Lane. Surprised, he dragged her along to the rebel base at the Daily Planet building, but before she could explain, police stormed the building and they were separated.

Jimmy was surprised to see Lois again, but angry when he found out she had brought Superman along. He threw a brick at him, and it obviously didn't harm Superman, but emotionally, Superman was hurt that he was alienated from his old friend. Superman and Lois had a long talk with him, and Jimmy lightened up.

He followed them to LexCorp, and confronted Luthor, who escaped, but was killed on his flight. Though their ordeal was over, Jimmy could not cheer.
