What Will Replace SMALLVILLE? Only The RAVEN Knows!

TV The CW Horror DC Comics by brians
As Smallville nears the end of its decade long run, the CW and DC comics are hard at work to replace the show with what will hopefully be another successful long-running series and they think they have it in Raven.  
According to Variety, the CW is possibly going to adapt Raven as a new series. A script has already been ordered from Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment, with former V co-executive producer Diego Gutierrez serving as writer and executive-producer.

Who is Raven you ask? The character, whose real name is Rachel Roth, is the offspring of a human and a demon. Her abilities include teleporting, entering the minds of others, and reading the emotions of others. Although she fights crime, she has to constantly struggle to keep the demonic side of her personality under control. Her "soul-self" can also separate from her body to either engage in physical fighting or act as her eyes and ears away from her.

The comic was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez and first appeared in DC Comics Presents #26 in October 1980. She spent her early years growing up in the alternate dimension of Azarath, and later helped form the New Teen Titans when she was refused membership in the Justice League.

Raven has had several incarnations, one as White Raven, then Dark Raven, then reincarnated teenage girl and has also appeared in the animated Teen Titans series that ran from 2003-2006

Raven's more recent adventures involve a lot of fighting, demonic attacks and even some teen romance, which sounds like perfect fodder for The CW . Yay, it'll be like 90210 meets a hormonal teenager with drama issues, sounds fitting!
