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 -- made him realize that he was better off working independently, where at least he could keep his morals and idealisms intact, and resigned his membership.
