Billy Batson, while still attending elementary school, became a member of the Justice League through his superhero identity Captain Marvel. However, a fight between himself and Superman that was secretly engineered by Lex Luthor caused Billy to see that the main heroes of that league that he looked up to -- particularly Superman -- were no longer acting like heroes and after the fight Billy resigned his membership in order to keep his morals and idealism intact.
