Synopsis for "Friends in Need"

Having gone undercover to expose a drug dealer named Fat Eddie Cortes, Jimmy Olsen discovers that he is not as adept at infiltration as he would like to believe. Fat Eddie learns the truth about Jimmy and chains him inside the lower compartments of a derelict ship, which he then floods. Failing to extradite himself, Jimmy is forced to use his signal watch to call Superman for help. Superman arrives just in time to prevent Jimmy from drowning.

The experience causes Jimmy to reflect upon his own life and the events that led him to create his unique hypersonic wristwatch in the first place. While still a copy boy at the Daily Planet, Jimmy discovered that his friend Chrissie Walker had overdosed on drugs and had come to his house seeking aid. Unable to contact the police or hospital, Jimmy's quick-wits enabled him to cobble together an ultrasonic signaling device out of spare parts. Superman, hearing the high-pitched whine for the first time, tracked it to its origin point and found Jimmy and the dying girl. He successfully brought her to the hospital in time to save her life. Superman praised Jimmy for his ingenuity, and suggested that he should fashion his device into a wristwatch so he would always be able to call upon him for aid should another emergency arise.



Notes

  • Earliest chronological appearance of Sarah Olsen and Jimmy Olsen's Signal Watch.
  • The character Chrissie is referred to with the last names MacMillan and Walker, which seems to be an accident.

Trivia
