You know, i said "tony stark as batman" earlier, but i'm seeing him more as "gambit as nightwing" vibe now.
As for why he's joined Freedom's Avengers, i figure it will be that he's on the same case as them and follows their lead. We'll say it's a mutually beneficial thing when he sticks around afterwards. I didn't know there was animosity between the teams! That will be interesting though. He's always trying to impress Callie, this is just another thing on the list
Their relationship is "friendly but could be more". Since they've been friends he's grown feelings for her. Whether or not it's mutual, i don't know if I should answer that. if she does and i get the "my character is so awesome that he's nabbed one of the canon big names" vibes of suedom. As for her support, yeah they have the same haunts so they help each other out, as partners at least when they need it.
Hm, the name he's made for himself. As Ashton Park, it's obvious to see. He's one of those celebrities you always see on entertainment camera. Scarlet Crow's career is fairly new. 6 months to a year by now? He's cleaned up some street violence and organized crime. It's been known early on that Scarlet Crow is Ashton Park. He was unmasked after getting caught by some mob enforcers You know that scene from Kick-Ass where they unmask him in front of a live audience? Think if the unmasking had been successful, but they still got their asses handed to them by, well not Hit Girl, but The Raven. It's an open secret in this setting. Everyone knows but no one goes out of their way to bother him about it (except maybe some unscrupulous criminals)
