History: (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 2 - Corps entry - BTS) - John Raven became the Will of the People, Earth-7305's representative in the multidimensional Corps group.

(Excalibur I#50) - When extradimensional sorcerer Necrom attempted to converge the multiverse into a singularity, Will of the People was briefly transported to Earth-616 during a battle with ninjas before returning to his home reality almost as quickly as he appeared, making Earth-616's Excalibur think him to merely be an extradimensional apparition.

Comments: Created by Alan Davis and Mark Farmer.

Will of the People's actual eye and hair color were impossible to determine, as he was never seen without his mask. However, his eye and hair color can be presumed to be the same as his Earth-691 counterpart, Killraven. His height and weight were also approximated based on his Earth-691 counterpart.

Will of the People's real name, codename and status as a member of the Corps was first revealed in the Corps entry of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 2 (2008).
His status as a Corps member might arguably have been confirmed in the Handbook, but it wasn't revealed there; the costume is a dead giveaway that he's connected to the Corps. - Loki
