Batman and Superman, all jarred up like pickles.[1]

A pickle was a cucumber that was preserved in a jar of salt and water, or some other type of liquid, and it was often eaten as a snack or used as a condiment for sandwiches such as hamburgers. Relish was a type of jam made with pickles.

When Superman first met Mr. Mxyzptlk, he mispronounced his name "Mixed Pickle," and later, after he returns to Jimmy Olsen, who he had left to sneak off as his superhero counterpart, and when Jimmy Olsen asks where he had been, he told him he was feeling ill because he apparently had eaten a "mixed pickle."[2]

When Green Arrow went to rescue the Super Friends from the clutches of Doctor Hiram Gulliver, he noticed they were unable to escape the jars that they were put in, and he realized that they were no good to him bottled up like pickles.[3]

When Electro shrank Batman and Robin and placed them in a jar, he told them they should be renamed "the Dynamic Pickles.[4]
