James "Jimmy" Olsen (d. 2015) was a CIA operative posing as a photographer for the Daily Planet.


Olsen was a CIA operative posing a Daily Planet photographer. Olsen was in Nairomi with Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, who had been assigned with interviewing terrorist General Amajagh. The two were escorted to General Amajagh's headquarters and commenced the interview only for Anatoli Knyazev to grab Olsen's camera and smash it before revealing a tracker hidden inside.

Olsen then revealed his true identity and claimed Lois had nothing to do with his assignment. He tells Amajagh that he is there to strike a deal with him but Amajagh is having none of it and shoots him dead.
