Heartwarming: Jimmy Olsen
  • Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #5 contains the story "The Boy Olympics". Finding out that the Planet's rival paper, the Sentinel is on the verge of closing, Jimmy organizes the titular event to keep the Sentinel newsboys from becoming unemployed, even when Superman reminds him that it will mean his own job if he's caught. Perry White gets his own CMOH when we discover that he was also trying to help the Sentinel and was the Anonymous Benefactor who provided money for the Olympics advertising.
    Healthy competition is the lifeblood of America, and brotherhood is its heart.
  • In Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #17, Jimmy believes he is dying of radiation poisoning. When Superman, who has figured out the same thing, becomes upset over being unable to save him, Jimmy instantly forgets about his impending death in an effort to comfort him.
