Jimmy Olsen dropped off his photo of Superman and Bibbo Bibbowski at the latter's new bar and grill, Ace O'Clubs. He took the subway to Suicide Slum and talked to Bibbowski. He noticed the photo of Ace O'Club's matchbook. Olsen decided to ask him if he heard anything. Bibbowski remembered some goons talking about a caper and pointed two out. Olsen followed them to a run-down building. He hid behind a dumpster then after the goons entered, he jumped to a fire escape. The ladder extended and creaked. He eavesdropped on a higher-up talking about eating lunch at Gino's then bailing out Bruno Mannheim. After they left the room, Olsen entered the office from the window. Olsen opened a drawer and saw a gun similar to the weapons Intergang used at City Hall. He took a photo then noticed his page-one photo of a Parademon then saw a Mother Box. Two goons barged in, armed with hi-tech rifles. They decided to just kill Olsen.

Jimmy Olsen tried to bluff them and pretended to be a drug addict looking for a score. It didn't work and they searched him. They found a Superman screen shot on his phone and a Daily Planet press pass in his wallet. One of the goons got a call and learned the judge denied bail for Bruno Mannheim. The goons decided to use Olsen as a hostage and blackmail Superman into breaking Mannheim out for them. They took Olsen downstairs and showed off their Apokoliptian cannon. They boasted it was powerful enough to take out Superman. Olsen kept stalling for time and asked if they were working for Darkseid. One of the goons was amused and stepped in too close. Olsen kicked him in the crotch then hit the other with his feet, chair, and all his momentum. Olsen's phone went skidding but he ran for the door. The goon's boss returned in a panic about a monster beating up the Justice League. Now untied, Olsen lunged for his phone. A school bus suddenly crashed through the building and killed the Intergang. Olsen realized he was the only survivor but was face to face with Doomsday. He reached for the trigger and fired the cannon into Doomsday. It had no affect.

Batman caught up and threw exploding Batarangs at Doomsday's back. Doomsday threw the wrecked school bus at him. He dodged and was soon joined by Wonder Woman. The fight continued into the city proper. White reassigned Olsen to cover the monster battle and sent him the Planet's helicopter. Superman flew past him as he landed near Ace O'Clubs to pick up Lois Lane.
