Jimmy stowed away on a space rocket about to be launched, and ended up on the planet Zolium, where Jimmy gained super-powers like Superman's. Jimmy decided to become a superhero and called himself Super-Lad.

However, Jimmy found it impossible to adopt a secret identity: no matter what role he adopted, people immediately recognised him. After Superman found Jimmy and brought him home, he revealed that all the people on Zolium were telepaths.
