For at least the first half of WWII, he was unaware that this phrase was responsible for his control over the Thunderbolt. During this era, he must receive 8 or more RAP's on a Dumb Luck Action Check in order to accidentally say the magic words.

Ed's Notes: "Not much of a Super Hero" is a VAST understatement. Without Thunderbolt, he's little more than Jimmy Olsen. He's like a Jar-Jar Binks, Snapper Carr, Forrest Gump hybrid, blundering his way through life and yet somehow having everything still work out for him. About the only useful thing I even saw him do in the comics, without the Thunderbolt anyway, was to suggest that the JSA put Solomon Grundy on the moon, since no prison on earth (in the late 1940's) could hold him.  And Green Lantern thought this was actually a pretty good ides, so he did just that...

...Which must have given quite a shock to the Apollo 11 crew when they landed there 20 years later!
