What the hell is going on with Jimmy Olsen?

Last week in Countdown #49, Jimmy Olsen gets attacked by Killer Croc and goes all spazoid with what seems to be residual elasticity powers (he was Elastic Lad at one point in time, in case you forgot). With Ralph Dibny hanging up the mantle of Elongated Man, maybe DC is positioning Olsen to take over, but I hope not.

Now, in Countdown #48 (released today), a piece of a building is falling on some people and he seems to exhibit super-speed. No explanation, and Olsen didn't seem to know, so that kinda blows the Elongated Man theory out the window.

So, what the hell is going on with Jimmy Olsen? Does he have some red kryptonite in his pocket? Is it some strange space rays or something? Or is DC really going to punish us all and make Jimmy frickin Olsen a superhero again? I was running out of reasons to continue reading Countdown since the Legion interludes are rare and very small, not to mention they are all covered in the Lightning Saga crossover in JSA and JLA. But now I am going to continue reading just to see how disappointed a fanboy could be in his favorite company.
