Default Re: Jimmy/Jenny - where do you stand?

I dunno. For me, I don't think a Jenny Olson would work because the whole point of the character to me is that he is Superman/Clark's only true guy friend and what that says about Supes. Where Metropolis Clark and Jimmy are portrayed as a couple of nerdy guys who share nerdy interests, it goes a long way to humanizing Supes. It suggests that nerdy, glasses Clark is a true part of Superman's character because he would rather send his time off hanging out with Jimmy. I'm not saying that men can't have true female friends, I have plenty. But the relationship is different I think. However, I'm open-minded. It all depends on how they interpret the character.
