CW Seed had announced that it is extending its DC animated output beyond Vixen with Freedom Fighters: The Ray, a new series based upon the Grant Morrison version of the character, who will have the honour of becoming the first gay superhero lead on the small screen.
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.
Freedom Fighters: The Ray is being produced by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, whose live-action shows include The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
