"The Champions are about confronting the injustices of the world, particularly the ones younger people face. As a Marvel comic, though, we can’t be too on the nose. It’s sort of disrespectful to do a story about Ferguson, call the city Ferguson, and act like the superheroes can have anything to do there, because that belittles the efforts of the real heroes in that town. If we take situations like that, though, and sort of tweak and fictionalize them a bit, it’s clear what we’re doing." - Mark Waid

Yeah, at least Eli had an established character. After Spencer is done with Sam Wilson Captain America I doubt anybody else is going to be writing these two characters ever again. Maybe have them show up in the background for large hero group shots, but more likely one of them is going to die in some ignoble fashion to spur some Event.

This new Patriot is going to be Falcon's sidekick in the new Falcon solo written by Rodney Barnes.

Eli sadly seems to be tangled up in some dumb legal thing between Marvel and one of their former writers that created one of Eli's family members.

...What? They're actually giving this new Falcon a solo series? Or are they giving Sam Wilson his own series?

It's going to be Sam going back to being Falcon and getting a new solo.

Oh, I'd wondered if there was some behind-the-scenes reason for Eli's vanishing.

As far as I know that rumor about it being legal issues is just that a rumor. There does not seem to be a signal article anywhere on the net supporting it that can be found.

All we know is that Marvel is not allowing Eli or any of his family to be used.
