Coming off the announcement that Jimmy Olsen will be suiting up as Guardian in season two of Supergirl, The CW has released the first official image of the character, via Heroic Hollywood.
The Guardian is a classic DC Comics character created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1942. Rivaling Marvel’s Captain America, the character has reached peak physical human condition, and uses an indestructable shield to fight crime.
Jimmy Olsen has never dawned the Guardian mantle in the comics, which shows that the series isn’t afraid to stray from its source material.
