Default Is [SPOILER] a supporting cast member in Jimmy Olsen?!

Spoilers for the Leviathan Rising one-shot, which Lantern completists should definitely get.

Speculation for Jimmy Olsen's upcoming ongoing by Matt Fraction (Hawkeye, Sex Criminals) and Steve Lieber (The Fix, Superior Foes of Spider-Man).

The Leviathan Rising Special is both the Prologue to DC's Event Leviathan crossover and the secret pilot issue for various upcoming Superman spinoffs. It includes a hilarious sequence spoofing/updating the Silver Age issue in which Jimmy marries a Gorilla. Turns out, this time, it's an interdimensional Jewel Thief. However, the sequence enda with him discovering a cat in the hotel bathroom. That cat is Dex-Starr, and he doesn't get rid of him at the end of the issue. Could that plot get picked up on in Olsen's new book?

[Spoiler]
Yeah, this is light on continuity based on the Event Leviathan #1 since Dex-Starr is supposed to be dead and for some reason they keep the blood spewing, but make it safe (Jimmy gets covered in it with no effect). But, yeah, at the end of the issue the panels with him made it look like the cat was his pet and/or sidekick.
