    They can co-exist - they don't have a single team member in common, other than possibly Champions Reinforcement Roster member Prodigy, who hasn't made a physical appearance there and therefore could in theory be the other Prodigy (one of the Slingers) and not the ex X-Man and YA (Zub has even avoided answering the question of his identity when asked on his Tumblr AMA).

    The Champions are more of a replacement for the New Warriors than the YAs, quite frankly (and they DO have a team member in common, Nova). The last NW volume was at around the same time as the last YA one.

    And don't say Marvel should only have one teen team at a time. DC had two Titans teams until this week when one of them ended, and also have Young Justice.

    First I've heard of any of that. Can take it or leave it; read the Runaways crossovers and I think there's a reason Kate was the only one become a bigger-name character.

    Hard to say if they'd adjust to that, although it would recontextualize some things in the comics if they did that.

    Legal arrangements were made to be able to use the Champions name again after Marvel let the copyright fall away.

    I'd be a bit surprised if they just drop it after a few years use (unless the legal arrangement has a sunset clause that isn't known).

    Yeah, they can co-exist but is Marvel interested in going that route or are they more likely to want to clear the field for The Young Avengers? If Young Avengers returns it wouldn't surprise me to see Champions rebranded as the second Young Avengers title. Or it's cancelled and the characters Marvel cares about (Miles, Kamala, Riri,) end up on Young Avengers. I left the Sam version of Nova off because he was created by Loeb who runs the TV stuff. Feige's domain is the movies and the Disney streaming service. I don't see Feige wanting to use a toy created by Loeb for that reason alone.
