Magic Words

So in a powerful scene in 52 #52, Captain Marvel changes Black Adam's magic word to something he'll never guess so he can no longer transform into his super-powered alter ego. At the end of the series, we're left wondering what it could be. And now, in Countdown #47, about a month later, we learn that it was... "Sorry."

How... lame. It's completely mundane, and as such cheapens the excellent issue of 52 in which the plot point was introduced.

Can I do better? You bet I can! Here's some new "magic words" that a kid like Billy Batson might come up with that Black Adam would probably never utter even if he did guess it.

"BILLY R0XX0RS THE BIG ONE!!!"
"I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT!!!"
"LATE 360 SHOVE IT TO BONELESS!!!"
"SPOON!!!"
"HAN SHOT FIRST!!!"
"TETSUO!!!"
"JENGA!!!"
"NOBODY TOSSES A DWARF!!!"
"THAT'S THE WAY UH-HUH UH-HUH I LIKE IT!!!"
"I'M BATMAN!!!"
"MOON PRISM POWER MAKE-UP!!!"

*KRAKOOM!*

Anyone got something else that isn't another lame-duck pop culture reference, as that seems to be all I'm good for?
