2012-03-29 09:02:56 kniels Notes This character was an Earth 2 Crisis survivor, who had significant stories on both Earth 2 and the modern, "unified" Earth. He technically "died" as an old man but was re-animated and de-aged at the request of Jakeem Thunder.

Fun fact: Johnny Thunder was the first non-charter member of the JSA to join. In All-Star Comics #3, he's shown crashing the organizational meeting of the group, and they eventually extend membership to him in #6. Let's face it: some of those heroes voted him in to make themselves look good by comparison. (I'm lookin' at you, Wildcat, and you, Hourman. Get off the junk, man.)

2008-04-26 14:57:15 ccl080673 Bio There's no way to describe this guy but as a lucky idiot. He came into control of the Thunderbolt, essentially a genie, who had to grant any wish he had. Unfortunately, he had no command of the English language. Most of his stories revolved around his attempts to find just the right way to phrase his requests. Usually, he did a fair amount of destruction, before finding the words to make everything better. When he was able to be clear, though, he was able to summon one of the most powerful forces in the DCU, capable of things that Superman could literally only dream of. He was forced to resign from the original JSA when his power over the Thunderbolt was greatly diminished by the High Priest of Badhnisia--ruler of the plane on which the Thunderbolt resided. For a time, the Bolt was answering only 1/4th of his requests. He gave his place in the JSA to Black Canary. Eventually the High Priest's plans were laid bare, and it became apparent that he intended to rule Badhinisia. Casting several powerful spells to protect him from the Thunderbolt, Johnny eventually lost almost all control over the Thunderbolt. He was able to issue one final request, though, and sent the Bolt to get Superman. Superman (I) and his wife, Lois, were able to overcome the High Priest, and Johnny decided to remain in Badhnisia to teach its people about democracy. Only when that mission was complete did he return home. During the Silver Age, he popped up with some frequency, and tended to be seen more often on Earth 1 than not, as travelling between the two Earths was easier for him than any other character in the DCU. He lived through the Crisis, but was effectively retired in Badhnisia thereafter. Eventually, after the new JSA was formed, he was aged to a point of senility and basically died. Having found the pen in which the Thunderbolt was kept, and thus coming to be the Thunderbolt's new "master", Jakeem Thunder requested of his Thunderbolt that Johnny be revived. He was, but the Bolt wasn't quite able to do it as straightforwardly as Jakeem might have wanted. He fused Johnny and his Thunderbolt into one entity, creating Johnny Thunderbolt. This character, restored to youth, but with a more mature personality, survives, mostly in Badhnisia, to this day. (In a 2005 JSA arc, however, it appeared that Johnny and his Thunderbolt had gotten a "divorce", but a full explanation has yet to be revealed.)
