WOLFMAN RETURNS TO WRITE RAVEN FOR DC MINISERIES
by Jeffrey Renaud, Staff Writer
The Jack Kirby Award-winning writer told CBR News, "Raven has always been my favorite of the Titans I created. Her origin is the strongest and she fits into the real world whereas the others are definitely more fantasy. She's gone through the biggest journey and there are still endless possibilities for her.
"What was interesting here was picking up a character, who has been changed in the interim," continued Wolfman. "She's in a new body and younger than she was when I wrote her but she's still the same character."
Raven, twice possessed, killed and re-incarnated, currently exists in DCU proper as an 18-year old high school student. That basis is where "DC Special: Raven" picks up. "Essentially, Raven is beginning high school, which in itself is a time of emotional change," explained Wolfman. "I was easily able to accept that Raven is younger because in many ways she never had a life to begin with. According to my and George Perez's issues, she was kept from her mother, kept from emotions, kept from everything but total control over who she was.
