    Nice! Long overdue for this character. I hope they actually get around to using him in some kind of prominent way. Easily my favorite YA character.

    Hmm...I haven't heard that the legal issues have been resolved yet. So, I wouldn't hold my breath about seeing The Bradleys anytime soon, especially on screen. However, if they have it would be great.

    what exactly are the legal issues involved? And where is his uncle, from The Crew?

    Fingers-crossed that they have things worked out.

Would be cool if he is written as a leader worthy of Captain America's legacy. Its time for America to embrace the strength, will, and presence of its young Black men to be heroes.

    Oh, I forgot there was a modern day Patriot. I'm a fan of the original -- who would eventually be Captain America before he was killed. There was a great mini-series of the Golden Age Patriot written by Karl Kesel around 10 years ago.

    Regarding Patriot II, I preferred his original uniform.

    How reliable is IMDB these days? They have him listed as being in eps 3 and 6.

    Depends, I think it can be edited like Wikipedia, so it's a give and take. Though they tend to be typically pretty okay in most cases.

    So what I can remember is that the creator of The Crew got into a legal dispute over copyright regarding anyone in the Bradley family, and Eli had to be held off on because of that. I think he was supposed to be in YA the new in David's place maybe, because Gillian mentioned he wanted to use him back then but couldn't for reasons. So Yes his uncle is from the crew, and because of his grandfather's blood, or his uncle's blood, Eli now has super powers.

    They were originally planning on having him make a cameo in Black Panther, but that was removed due to the issues. I think they did settle it that's why things seem to be moving forward.

    Her's hoping for an Eli and Kate team up possible romance because they were cute together.

    I'm not sure but I really hope that things have been cleared for Eli to return to the MU and appear in the MCU.

    I hope so too. They're slowly pulling YA members into the MCU.

    Wow, so is this also the reason why we haven't seen Josiah X? I think it would be great to see that Eli received some real intensive training by Josiah X while he's been low-key. Then when he joins YA properly he can be that dominant alpha hero that he can be without questioning himself so much.

    Hoping 2021 will be an active year for Eli Bradley (A.K.A. The Patriot):
