History: The Raven was a mystery man who saw an advert in a newspaper calling on the Spider-Widow for aid. He went to the address listed, where he witnessed the crimefighting female walk into an ambush, getting knocked out and kidnapped by enemy spies. The Raven followed the foreign agents, and rescued the Spider-Widow; together they overpowered the crew of a German sub, and handed them over to the Navy. Before parting ways, they shared a kiss (in a darkened room, so neither saw what the other looked like unmasked), which proved to be the start of an occasional ongoing partnership.
Comments: Raven appeared in Feature Comics #60-71 and Police Comics #20-22. Thanks to Darci for providing the Raven's real name.
