Jimmy Olsen was a member of the Central Intelligence Agency. He posed as a photographer from the Daily Planet in order to investigate a warlord in Nairomi, Africa.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeEdit

Jimmy travelled alongside Lois Lane to Nairomi, Africa, posing as a photographer aiding her reporting. While Lois was interviewing a leader, Anatoli Knyazev pulled apart his camera, finding a tracker. Realizing that the CIA had infiltrated their compound, they threatened to kill Jimmy and Lois. Jimmy, however, explained that Lois had no part in the ruse, and they had simply used her credentials as a cover. He was promptly shot dead by the Nairomian warlord Amajagh.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
