Raymond "Ray" Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a "genetic light bomb." The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice – he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists. The animated "Freedom Fighters: The Ray", which comes from Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, will introduce the first gay superhero to lead a show. The series will premiere on the digital platform in 2017. Like with Vixen, the idea is to have the character cross over in a live-action form to the CW's Flash-Arrow universe.
