Kid Eternity was basically Quality Comics' attempt to cash in on the rampant success of Fawcett's Captain Marvel franchise in the '40s. Even a casual reader will notice the similarities; by using his magic word,"ETERNITY", he's able utilize the the powers of other heroes from the past. Yet, the kid himself doesn't undergo any transformation, instead, the hero of his choosing appears to help him. Doesn't sound like the greatest of super powers, but he was popular enough to last for seven years (1942-'49) and keep two comic series going (HIT COMICS and his own solo title).
This particular tale of a midget who vows to get even with taller people was illustrated by Al Bryant.

from KID ETERNITY #8, Winter 1947:
