I wanted to see if anyone could confirm something I just read on the TV Tropes page for The Cornelius Chronicles: "Moorcock also made the character (Jerry Cornelius) available to other writers, making Jerry a sort of open-source character nearly 40 years before Jenny Everywhere."

So, is there actually an Eternal Champion in the Public Domain waiting to be used? I mean, yeah...it's Jerry Cornelius, not Elric or any of the good Eternal Champions, but hey...

I found a little about this character, from Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Cornelius#Work_inspired_by_Jerry_Cornelius

This (sort of) contradicts the above, IMO. https://web.archive.org/web/20070311002930/http://www.multiverse.org/fora/showthread.php?t=2853

Here's a quick article from Comicvine - https://comicvine.gamespot.com/jerry-cornelius/4005-75370/

Not sure if any of this will help, but I thought I'd take a look.

I  don't think the character is actually in the public domain. But it looks like Moorcock will let people use the character as long as he approves their version.
