James Olsen was at his older brother's funeral along with Clark Kent, Chloe Sullivan, Oliver Queen, Bart Allen and Dinah Lance also attend the funeral. At the end of the funeral Chloe gave him his brothers camera.

Seven years after the fight against Darkseid: When Lois Lane was about to enter Perry White's office, Jimmy abruptly stopped and warned her about it not being a good idea to speak to their editor. He then asked for Lois' opinion regarding photos that he took of Superman, to which Lois stated that while the color and lighting are fine, its lacking the drama and awe worthy of Superman. She then reminded Jimmy that he has some big shoes to fill left by his brother, but that she is certain he can do it, leaving Jimmy to smile proudly back at her.
