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.

No Caption Provided

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.

Super Strength.

Each crow has shown degrees of super strength consistently.

Inherent Skill.

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.

Nice work! This is pretty awesome! It's nice to see a character new to the battle forums who already has a pretty rad collection of feats.

Rochelle Davis was part of the cast of the cult classic 1994 film The Crow. This film featured the late Brandon Lee, son of the late Bruce Lee. She starred as Sarah the little girl that was street savvy. I have the honor of working with her on her biography. There will be a section in her book where she answers fans questions. Please take a moment to like her page and ask a question if you are interested.

Thank you!
