There were a few changes made to the film from comic. First he was white in the comic and black in the film, but more importantly he had a larger role as Shelly Webster
not Eric Draven was the one rushed to the hospital and he stayed with Shelly instead of Captain Cook staying with Eric. He also had a greater connection to the original case than he did in the comic and he helps the Crow a lot in the film where as in the comic he is much more like a rookie cop.
