Willie tells Clark about battling the Monster League of Evil across 1953 dimensions. After imprisoning them, they note that they have done something to him.

Believing his story, but unsure if Willie is, in fact, Captain Thunder, Clark takes Willie to a police station to see if he's been reported missing. Willie instinctively turns into Thunder to prevent a crime, and Thunder's evil persona takes over again. Superman tricks him into using his wisdom to figure out what happened and find his way home to his parallel earth.
