    Quote:
    In terms of Captain Marvel: he is NOT Billy Batson, but the two are intrinsically linked to one another with Billy informing the separate being with his innocence and humanity. CM is Billy's idealized idea of what being a grown up means. Their connection is ambiguous, complex and an exploration of identity. Their exact relationship isa mystery, and should be allowed to remain one.


I ought to add: the stories set in the Golden Age are completely contradictory about the nature of their relationship. Not a criticism of them, simply saying that resorting to the original texts won't necessarily be helpful.
