*Minion is the closest power to explain how Johnny can summon the Thunderbolt. When Johnny says the phrase “Cei-U” (pronounced “Say you”), he summons the genie-like being. He has control over the Thunderbolt for one hour and it's incapable of taking independent actions and must follow Johnny's orders.. Johnny must make a Smart's roll before ordering the thunderbolt to use it's magical abilities, if the roll fails then the consequences are usually something of a humourous nature and never seriously dangerous to Johnny or those nearby.
