Jimmy Olsen was a photographer for the Daily Planet. He met Clark Kent when he started working for the paper in his early 30s. He also had a relationship with Lois Lane's sister Lucy and would visit her during her weekends away from the all-girls prep school that she attended. It was during one of those visits that he saw Supergirl in action, though he never revealed this news to the outside world when she departed after finding the Omegahedron. He, along with the rest of Metropolis, watches helplessly as Superman is severely wounded after foiling Lex Luthor's latest plot. He is relieved when Superman wakes up from his coma.
