CW Seed is debuting a new superhero series, The Ray, in 2017. What sets The Ray apart from other entries in The CW’s DCTV Universe is that he is the first gay lead character.
Raymond ‘Ray Terrill was a reporter who discovered a secret government project to weaponize light but was found out and exposed to a ‘genetic light bomb’ before he could expose it. Instead of killing him, the bomb gave him light-based powers.
The Ray first appeared in Justice League of America #107 (October 1973), but the character was reworked by Grant Morrison In his crirically acclaimed Mulitversity series. For more follow the jump.
