At the ripe age of 17, why doesn't Elijah have any hair?

Maybe he cut his hair like that? or its a side effect of the super soldier serum...

No teenager chooses to look like Mr. Clean. That's usually only happens after a terrible haircut, and I don't suspect Eli has been getting bad haircuts since 2005

Pix, I think you might be losing touch with today's youth.

I used to shave my head when I was 16. So did both my brothers.....and lots of other people I went to school with.

 No hair becuase
a)  means theres nothing to grab in a fight
b) shinnyness can be a distraction  
c) hes going for a skinhead ganster look

As a teenager myself who is attending his last year of high school, I can safely say that a pretty fair amount of people attending to shave their heads, if not full-on bald, then close to it.

You're welcome:)
 
Why can't he be bald? It could be his hair style and not a genetic thing.

A fade is one thing, scalped is another. Eli is the latter.
 
Even in his younger flashbacks he's hairless, no me gustalo.

Some black people just like to shave their head. I used to, just because it was easier

Maybe it's a side-effect from all that MGH he was abusing.

Really? I never did because I like having something to brush.

He can be (obviously), but he being bald without explanation seems to be feeding misconceptions. 
 
From the looks of it though Isaiah was also bald but his Grandmother has a head full of hair.

That theory doesn't work if he was also bald in Flashbacks from before he was taking MGH.

His mother laced his formula with it when he was very young.

Or it's become so common place that no one sees it as much of an issue, but whatevs.

His dad had been missing for months when he was recruited to the Young Avengers. Not sure about his mother. I actually haven't read YA in some time.

I knew a guy who went mostly bald when he was 14, so he shaved his head completely ever since then.  Maybe poor Patriot suffers from an early on-set of male pattern baldness?  :)

at a VERY young age my uncle had a receding hairline(I think he may have been born with it) and all the kids in his class teased him so he has been shaving hi shead since the thir grade. Maybe patriot has the same problem. Or he could be trying to emulate his uncle and grand-dad(2 heroes who any little boy would want to emulate). Or maybe he just can't grow hair out of his scalp.

Maybe he's trying to infiltrate a skin head gang and has a high bluff rank.

OK THIS IS GETTING REDICULOUS WITH THE UNDERCOVER RACIAL SLURS!! HE BALD CUZ HE'S BALD!!!

#27 Posted by SladeRogers (291 posts) - - Show Bio

The reason he's bald might be because of the fact he used the MGH and it was a negative side effect. Possibly.

idk y he would shave his head i dont even cut my hair but then again hes like 5 years older than me

Is this seriously a legitimate question? Why wouldn't he shave his head? Maybe he wants to look like his grandfather. Maybe he likes shaving his head because he never has to worry about how clean his fade is or how sharp his lines are. Maybe he just doesn't care enough to want to look like a shaggy headed bum. More than likely, the artist (like many before him) didn't know how to draw nappy hair and decided to make his drawing times easier by leaving the sole black character in his book BALD. It isn't as if he is the only bald black superhero.
