While Superman is rescuing Jimmy and Lois from Intergang, Kalibak
appears and announces he plans to switch bodies with the Man Of
Steel. When Kalibak is about to make the mind transfer, Jimmy Olsen
interferes and Superman and Jimmy get their minds switched! In a
quick retreat, Kalibak grabs Jimmy - who has Superman's mind - and
takes him to Apokolips, leaving Superman - who has Jimmy's mind -
on Earth. Confused?
Superman - in Jimmy's body - is stuck in Apokolips, and is getting
threatened by Darkseid. Superman , though, is able to grab the mind
transfer device and hide it (this plot is later discarded in one
line from Desaad). Darkseid then orders Desaad to take him away,
for torture. Jimmy is left on Earth to deal with these powers. He's
scared stiff. He flies close to the ground and tries to avoid by
hit by bullets because he's not 'used' to being Superman. Professor
Hamilton tells Jimmy that's there no way (yet) for him to get to
Apokolips to switch back bodies. Jimmy then hears police sirens and
heads out to do the good work.
While trying to stop the robbery, Jimmy is confronted with Kalibak,
and pushes Kalibak and himself back through the Boom Tube in which
he came. He finds Superman (because of Jimmy's signal watch) and
switches back their bodies. Darkseid permits him to go, since there
was no real transgression against Earth. Jimmy is able to get a pic
of Darkseid before they vanish back to Earth. The pic runs in the
Daily Planet the next day, with praises to Jimmy.
