Friendship Friday with Jimmy Olsen: The Invisible Jimmy Olsen!

Who better to teach us about the true meaning of friendship than Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen?

Friends DON'T let friends think that they're trapped in the 4th dimension and therefore invisible, because the 4th dimension is time.  We are all trapped in the 4th dimension.


  1. I'm confused...were Superman and Perry just being dicks and ignoring Jimmy, and because he's so stupid, Jimmy assumed he was invisible? when in reality he was standing there the whole time...

    1. No, he was actually sent into the "fourth dimension" and became invisible by a mad scientist. Then he haunted the Daily Planet offices for a while before making some criminals think that Clark Kent is Superman. Hilarious.

      I was just mocking the fact that we actually live in the 4th dimension. I guess you could get really meta-textual and say that in the same way that we're 3 dimensional creatures living in the 4th dimension, Jimmy Olsen as a comic book character is a 2 dimensional character living in the 3rd dimension so the 4th is something crazy and foreign to him.

      But mostly I think the writer just didn't know that the 4th dimension was time.
