Origin

Born in the Bronx at 7 a.m. on the seventh day of the seventh month of a year ending in seven (1917) on a Saturday, the seventh day of the week, coinciding with the Seventh Circle of the Moon Lahseen in the calendar of the small Asian country of Badhnisia, Johnny Thunder was destined for a special fate.


Kidnapped as an infant by Badhnisian tribalists who thought he was their key to mastery of the world, he was exposed to mystical rituals. At age seven, he became master of a living Thunderbolt that could do anything all he had to do was utter the words "cei u" (pronounced "say you"), and the Thunderbolt would do his bidding for an hour.
