I'm not saying Billy is a bad person. Far from it. It's not like the powers that be would want another Black Adam.
Billy reminds me of a more foul-mouthed and younger version of Disney's Aladdin -- the street rat thief who is the "diamond in the rough" that is the only person worthy of Genie's power.
The fact that the person most worthy of divine power has to act like a jerk to protect himself drives home the point that the Nu Universe isn't quite as idealistic as past incarnations of the DC universe.
