MANITOU RAVEN


preferred the days when the only ice cream was mashed berries mixed with snow and fish oil.

Manitou Raven is just an old poop.

Hey, he just wants to live back in times where his wife didn't cheat on him with a bleeding heart liberal. ;)

I was looking forward to this being another heaven one...

Did I misinterpret the issue where Manitou Raven explained to Firestorm that he was sharing his wife with the JLA? I thought Manitou was cool, but Firestorm was weird with the swinging.

Of course, he could be completely cool with Firestorm sleeping with his wife but still not want Ollie fooling around. That's just asking to get sick.

I don't know. I don't even remember an issue with Firestorm and Manitou Raven in it. But I do remember much of Joe Kelly's run on JLA and then JLElite where even Dawn saw her action as a betrayal and was going with Ollie because he was showing her the kind of attention that Raven never gave her.

I think Dawn did think she was meant to be their communal wife at some point--I think she alluded to that to Superman maybe, and he was all like, taken aback--when she first got there.

Kelly seemed to be setting up Firestorm and Dawn at first, as Firestorm was teaching her English and Manitou Raven would give them dirty looks from afar, and I'm assuming that plan was scuttled when Firestorm left the League suddenly (maybe to be killed off?), and Kelly just shifted the plot over to Ollie in JLE...?

Oh, I didn't mean to suggest that Firestorm/Dawn moment never happened. I just literally didn't remember it. Kelly's introduction of Raven and Dawn on to the team was one of my least favorite bits during his run, so I probably glossed over that stuff.

I'm guessing the communal wife thing was supposed to be more of a den mother angle, seeing as how Kelly handled Dawn getting down with Ollie later.
