March 19, 2015: Geoff Johns Discusses Superman and Jimmy OlsenPrint

Superman #39 Writer Geoff Johns ends his run on "Superman" with issue #39 (out now). The Washington Post caught up with Johns and artist John Romita Jr. to discuss their run on the title, the changes they've made, and how Jimmy Olsen fit into it all. Here's a few excerpts from the article...

    "When I was just thinking about the character and thinking about the story possibilities, every time my brain started to picture him talking to somebody with a problem he was having...or dealing with Clark and Superman, it always was just with another superhero," Johns told the Post's Comic Riffs. "I quickly realized [Superman] didn't really have anyone normal in his life that he could talk to again, because no one knew his secret."

    Issue No. 39 of Superman hit stands both brick and pixel yesterday, marking the end of Johns's brief but memorable stint with Romita. Their eight-issue run gave Superman a new superpower, as well as a relatable being of immense power (Ulysses) who went from much-needed confidante to regrettable adversary. And Clark Kent finally gained a friend when the "S" comes off the chest - by (spoiler if you're not caught up) revealing his secret identity to longtime amigo Jimmy Olsen.

    "I wanted to create somebody [Superman] could communicate with and relate to, and Ulysses was born out of that," Johns said. "Ultimately knowing where that story was going to go, and the complications in that story, I wanted Superman to experience a friendship and a complication in that friendship. And the whole point of it was to lead him to connect to somebody in his life that he would have to make a leap of faith for, and trust in. And that was Jimmy Olsen."
