|Jack Larson - the definitive Jimmy Olsen, according to HeroPress readers...|
HeroPress readers have spoken and a clear majority (33.33 per cent) chose Jack Larson - from the 1950's Adventures Of Superman TV series - as the definitive Jimmy Olsen in our recent opinion poll.
The Adventures Of Superman ran for six seasons, between 1952 and 1958, with Jack Larson turning up as youthful cub reporter and photographer Jimmy Olsen in 101 out of the show's 104 episodes.
Larson, who made a cameo appearance in 2006's Superman Returns as Bo the Bartender, died last September at the age of 87.
In second place, in our poll to discover the best live-action portrayal of Superman's pal, came Smallville's Aaron Ashmore, with 16.67 per cent of the vote, followed by a (bow) tie for third place between Sam Huntington, of Superman Returns, and Marc McClure, from the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, both on 13.33 per cent.
Spare a thought for poor Michael Cassidy whose appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was clearly so memorable that he netted absolutely zero votes in the poll.
