Black Raven. The Black Raven was created by the Russian author Misha Evstigneev and appeared in the serial Ved’ma I Chernyi Voron, ili Strashnye Nochi za Dneprom (1912).

The Black Raven is the leader of a group of bandits who terrorizes the rural areas around Moscow until the government’s troops begin to close in on them. In desperation, the Black Raven turns to a witch to enhance his powers. It works, and the Raven becomes a Superhuman, but the Raven is still eventually captured and killed.
