Series producers Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti have given some hints, suggesting it will be based heavily on the
DETECTIVE COMICS #38, 1940
THE NEW TEEN TITANS (VOL.2) #1-5, 1984 “THE TERROR OF TRIGON”
Another scene from the trailer features a young Raven reaching out to Dick Grayson for help, presumably from the demonic forces trying to take her over. In the comics, Raven was the daughter of a human woman and the demon lord Trigon. She recruits the Titans to help her fight his influence, and eventually, she would succumb to the evil side of her nature in the first story arc from the second
HAWK AND DOVE (MINI-SERIES) #1-5, 1988
Back in the ’60s, the legendary Steve Ditko created brothers Hank and Don Hall, one violent and one a pacifist, who became the heroes called Hawk and Dove. When Dove died, Hawk went off the rails without the calming presence of his brother.

When Raven first appeared, she was on the older side of teendom, about 19 or so. When Geoff Johns revived the title in 2003, he gave Raven a makeover. She now found herself in the form of a 13-year-old girl, and she also had a “real name” for the first time: Rachel Roth. It appears that the TV series is taking several cues from Geoff Johns’ run (which makes sense, given his status as series producer) especially with the character of Raven.
