Ebenezer Batson was the cruel uncle of Billy Batson. Following the deaths of Billy's parents, Ebenezer was the legal guardian of Billy until he shortly orphaned his nephew after gaining the trust fund Billy's father had willed it to him. Eventually, Ebenezer fell on hard times. When he learned of Billy having a job at WHIZ Radio, Ebenezer erroneously believed that Billy became rich by being a famous boy broadcaster and attempted to ask his nephew for money, whom he refused. Ebenezer would continue to scheme in stealing Billy's money. In one attempt Ebenezer tried to expose Dudley Marvel as a fraud for being Billy's uncle, but Billy ultimately preferred his fraudulent uncle who is more lovable than his real one.

  • This version of Ebenezer Batson, including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
