Captain Thunder. A mighty super-hero hailing from the Earth of a parallel dimension whose secret identity is that of young Willie Fawcett, an employee of WHAM-TV. One night, while on a Summer camping trip with a group of fellow orphans, Willie noticed a mysterious owl flying overhead, which seemed to beckon the youth to follow it. Pursuing the owl towards the solid rock wall of a hillside, the rock face suddenly opened into a cavern and Willie followed the owl inside and, to his astonishment, encountered Merokee, the last of the Mohegan tribe's great medicine men. Merokee explained that a tribal legend told of a boy of noble spirit would come forth and be invested with great powers by the last of the Mohegan shamans, and that Willie was the boy described in the legend. Holding up a belt with a lightining bolt emblazoned on its buckle, Merokee told Willie that, upon rubbing the buckle and speaking the word "Thunder", the boy would be invested with seven magical powers as follows: Tornado (power), Hare (speed), Uncase (bravery), Nature (wisdom), Diamond (toughness), Eagle (flight) and Ram (tenacity).
