Who Would Win? Lois Lane vs. Jimmy Olsen

Welcome to our speculative stadium, where legends duke it out and winner takes all! All what? No one knows! We’re just here to have fun.

Superman: Leviathan Rising Special # 1 joined the DCU comic library yesterday! In this super event, Action Comics led up to Superman being kidnapped! It’s up to Lois, Jimmy, and a host of other epic DC characters to set him free.

In honor of this harrowing adventure, we’re pitting arguably the two people closest to Superman against each other!

So who would win this one, folks? Each has their own expansive history of getting into trouble, and somehow (generally) getting out of it! Give us your reasoning and vote, below!

Jimmy is one of my favorite characters, but Lois Lane is one of the top for me. I have to go with Lois.

I wonder how long the voting will stay like this.

I was going to vote Lois, but now that I see the votes, I’m going to play devil’s advocate and say that Jimmy would likely develop temporary superpowers in order to win.

Jimmy strikes me as the kind of guy who wouldn’t hit a girl on general principle. Even if he didn’t, Lois is just made of tougher stuff and would trounce him, powers or not.

Jimmy gets out of a lot jams through sheer luck. Lois is just scrappy. She takes this one, likely with one solid punch.

Definitely Lois. She always seemed the type to hold her own in many harowing adventures and jimmy seems to luck his way out of situations so, yeah, definitely Lois Lane.

Absolutely Lois. I don’t see any way that Jimmy could win this one.

One knee to his coin purse, followed by an utterance of “G-g-golly Miss Lane!” and it’s lights out for Jimmy.

What continuity are we in? Is Lois a master of Klurkor, as learned in the bottle city of Kandor? Somehow, Mister Action only got a jet belt there, and no real training.

Jimmy has lived through quite a few harrowing adventures. Still, he doesn’t stand a chance against Lois’ badassness.

My first inclination was Lois too. Then I thought, wait, just two normal adults fighting? Jimmy would win handily.

I think most people think Lois because we like her more and have seen her in more situations where she’s had to stay alive or defend herself. But just because she can stomp on a henchman’s foot, head butt them, and escape, doesn’t mean she could win a knock-down-drag-out fight with an adult male.

Besides Jimmy has been in lots of scrapes with his life on the line too. And if fantastical things are in play, Jimmy has had super powers way more often giving him an advantage there too.

Lois’s one trump card is Superman (Jimmy’s too btw) but I assume calling Superman is off limits.
