* AngstWhatAngst: With all the times Jimmy has been nearly killed, kidnapped, beaten up, transformed, and so on and so forth, you might think he would have a few mental scars from it. Nope.
* HilariousInHindsight: In one early [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] issue, a BunglingInventor creates a few inventions, including [[ComicBook/AntMan a way to communicate with ants]].
* JerkassWoobie: Jimmy's life wasn't the best, but sometimes he really brought it on himself.
* [[MemeticLoser Memetic]] WalkingDisasterArea
* OlderThanTheyThink:
** The iconic [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/1027_4_053.jpg Giant Turtle Man Jimmy cover]] that's been homaged many times is actually an homage itself to [[http://linesonpaper.tripod.com/ztws740.jpg this]].
** In ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'' Kara and Jimmy have a short-lived romance. Some fans have shipped both characters since the late fifties, and [[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2015/07/lucy-lane-on-supergirl-show-supermans.html they married in imaginary story Superman's Pal #57]]
* {{Squick}}: Jimmy apparently had sex with an alien butterfly-woman in ''ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis''.
* TheWoobie: Some of Jimmy's predicaments were brought on himself, but some just happened without regard to anything.
* WTHCastingAgency: Creator/MehcadBrooks raised some eyebrows being cast as Jimmy in ''Series/{{Supergirl}},'' not so much because of the RaceLift as because, well, [[MrFanservice he's an underwear model]]. It doesn't help that his attractiveness is mentioned matter-of-factly InUniverse, which kind of undermine attempts early on to portray Jimmy as insecure.
