Season 1 of Young Justice is the best example of my second point. Captain Marvel is treated as a senior to the entire Young Justice Team and has to supervise and mentor them on several occasions, even after Batman and several other Leaguers find out he is actually a kid. Meanwhile the Team shouldn't even think about joining the League anytime soon, even though they're all older than Billy. It's differences like that that make Billy Batson different from other teen superheroes and especially Spider-Man.
    On that level, you are right.

    I have a new post semi-related to this Datasheet.

    This one deals with the stuff that likely influenced Peter Parker.

    Which movies, which books, which movie stars of the 50s was most like Peter, and also the age-old question did Ditko actually design Ditko based on himself?
