Due to a lack of knowledge on a cult classic comic character, I decided to put together the best I can a Crow respect page.
The Crow is a hero who returns from the dead to seek revenge on whoever murdered him. The legend goes that the crow can ferry the souls of the dead to the after life. However if a soul is so full of sorrow and anger, that crow can bring them back to life to right the wrongs so the said soul can rest in peace.
In this way murder victims are often resurrected to seek revenge on those that wronged them with supernatural powers. There is many people who acted as a Crow in the comics and movies. This is a list of their shown supernatural powers and skill.
Each crow has shown degrees of super strength consistently.
Manhandle two men with each hand.
Breaks apart Steel poles and Netting with his bare hands.
Crush soldiers head even though he is wearing a steel helmet.
Rips the Windshield from a car.
Smashes threw a steel enforced door of a pawn shop with a punch.
punches threw the pressure glass of a shark tank.
Gets run over by a car, and flips it over.
Travel ability. This great strength grants them the ability to jump super distances and run real fast.
Eric traveling great distance by jumping and running on varying roof tops.
Joshua outpacing in pursuit cops with his speed and jumping.

Crows also have some neat Supernatural powers in Empathy, Crow Clairvoyance, and Crow Summoning.
Empathy. All Crows have a ability to read and feel what others have experienced by touch.
Salvador using empathy to read this guys mind for all the info he can.

The bird feeds info to Eric on possible weapons, and medical conditions of targets.

Crow Summoning/Transformation. A power only shown a handful of times, the Crow can summon a murder of crows to attack and shred a foe. The Crow in movies and in comics showed the ability to transform into a Crow(s)
The Crow can also summon a murder of crows when desperate.
Joshua summons crows to scare his targets.
Ashe summons or turns into (however one may see it) a murder of crows to kill his immortal target.

Every Crow has shown a measure of inherent skill when brought back to life to help exact revenge. No matter the background of the Crow had in life. Whether a business man, musician, artist, medicine man, or simple store clerk they all show skill comparable with most special forces operatives.
