In "Little Elvis", Billy Batson is revealed to be an orphan who is pure of heart and was chosen by The Wizard to receive his powers as it was prophesied that he would perish under the Rock of Eternity. Not much is known about why he was chosen, as The Wizard would only reply with "you know..." when asked.
