Elijah "Eli" Bradley is better known "Patriot," a superhero who is a member of the Young Avengers.
Patriot is the nephew of Josiah X (also known as "Justice"), who is a convert to Islam and is a Muslim clergyman.
At this time we do not know what Patriot's religious affiliation is.

Well, anyways, I was thinking of an idea for a UN-sanctioned super hero team with represenatives from different countries, and one of them is a female telepath from Turkey... named Sultana. And I suddenly realized that for the life of me I can't think of a single Muslim super-hero from either Marvel or DC.
So, are there any? And please don't turn this into a political debate.

Josiah X, from Marvel's The Crew (and the son of the black Captain America from The Truth), was Muslim. He was a Muslim preacher, in fact.
And although I don't think it's been confirmed, I'd say there's reason to believe that Patriot from Young Avengers might be Muslim, since Josiah X is his uncle.
