    You better say that "raise" is used to mean that the substantive is elevated by another one and "rise" means that the substantive is elevated by itself....

    Superman's raised a car(The car was elevated by superman)

    Superman rose from the ground after being knocked out by Batman(Superman got up by himself)

    Oh btw nice topic ^^
