Information on the cameo
James Bartholomew "Jimmy" Olsen is most well recognized as Superman's pal. He is an investigative reporter and photo-journalist, formerly a copy-boy, working at the Daily Planet since his teenage years. His closest friends and co-workers are Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Perry White. Olsen has no consistent superpowers of his own, but he is frequently placed into situations where he develops bizarre transformations or mutations allowing him to develop unique, albeit weird, special abilities. Superman has given him a Signal Watch to call on in case he is ever in danger and needs help. He has been a member of Project Cadmus and the Legion of Super-Heroes. Jimmy Olsen was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and has had a lengthy publication history, first appearing in Action Comics #6. (1938). He later got his own spin-off comic book series called Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen.
Appearance in the rap battle
Jimmy Olsen appears during Superman's first verse during the line, "This looks like a job for the OG!", and replies with "Superman!" while trying to take a photo of a posing Superman before being knocked away.
- Olsen is the first speaking cameo who is voiced by someone other than the actor that portrayed him.
- He is the second cameo to fill in a rhyme for a rapper, the first being the Dalek.
- As stated in the Behind the Scenes video for the battle, Peter said that they included Jimmy Olsen and Krillin because they thought it would be funny for both rappers to be supported by their "useless sidekicks."
