If Jimmy dies in a Daily Planet helicopter crash then the best way to save him is to get him fired as Planet employee.\\

->''"The Silver Age was when big headed future people went back in time to stop solar-powered flying cars. The time Batman put on multi-colored outfits every other story. And the time Superman got the power to shoot rainbows from his fingers that shot out a miniature version of himself! And yeah! I'm not joking about that last one! [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer That actually happened]]!"''[[note]][[http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/npuwcb4ctpijkj559dif.png He's really not]][[/note]]

->''"Sorry for not keeping you up to date on what’s up in ''Dick Tracy''! The new creative team has been pretty relentless in bringing back characters and plotlines from the strip’s storied past, and are now apparently moving on to the extremely wacky late ’60s period where Dick went to the moon repeatedly and Mysta, the daughter of the Governor of the Moon (no, really), married Dick’s son.
