Behold The Future
A mysterious woman with great powers.
The original crime-fighting Raven had long since retired to become a husband and father. After years of missed opportunities and tragic separations, Duncan Summers and Jasmine Sin married and had a child. The thrills in Duncan Summers’ life before could not compare to those instilled in him by his daughter. Callie was the apple of her father’s eye, and he made sure she had nothing but the best in life. He also didn’t reveal his past to her. It was something he hoped to put behind him, but it was not to be. When Callie turned 16, her father threw her a party the likes of which the New York social scene hadn’t seen in years. Unfortunately an uninvited guest arrived—her grandfather, Dr. Sin himself. Although he hadn’t been seen in years, the villainous doctor was as ageless as ever. Despite his daughter’s betrayal, Dr. Sin saw Jasmine had offered him a potential heir to his works. He kidnapped Callie, intending to indoctrinate her as a true Child of Sin. Duncan got back into his Raven costume for the first time in nearly twenty years to rescue his daughter, accompanied by his equally determined wife. They were successful in freeing Callie, but Jasmine died saving her husband from one of Dr. Sin’s deathrays. Not acknowledging his part in her death, Dr. Sin merely swore greater vengeance on the Raven for the death of his only child. Callie wanted more than anything to take up her father’s mantle as the Raven but he wouldn’t hear of it. He couldn’t bear the idea of losing her as he’d lost her mother. The stubborn 16-year-old wasn’t so easily denied. She trained in secret, stole some of her father’s equipment, and hacked into his obsessively complete crime files and dossiers from his years as the Raven. When he discovered she had begun operating as the Raven against his wishes, Duncan was livid, but he could not deny her even this. He eventually relented but demanded he train Callie far more thoroughly than even he had trained before taking on the mantle of the Raven. If she insisted on following the life she’d chosen, he wanted to ensure she would be safe. The Raven was one of many heroes who responded to the crisis in New York City when Baron Tellos attacked. The Summers family purchased one of the most exclusive penthouses in the city, part of which became the Rookery, the secret headquarters of the Raven. Callie joined the newly reformed Freedom Force while Duncan Summers became headmaster of the Claremont Academy as well as the Raven’s “silent partner.”
