After releasing The Vixen, Justice League, and Birds of Prey on their online channel CW Seed, is following up with another installment in the DC multiverse. Freedom Fighters: The Ray introduces Raymond Terrill aka The Ray, a superhero with light based manipulation powers.
Raymond was a reporter set on finding the injustices of the world and shining a light on them. When he uncovers a conspiracy by a group of government sciences intent on weaponizing light, he is set to reveal them. They tried to kill him with a light bomb, but instead of dying, Raymond was gifted with powers of flight, light manipulation, and energy blasts. Raymond decides to use his new-found powers to not just write about injustice, but to stop it.
The Ray is going into uncharted territories by becoming the first superhero show with a gay lead. It will be headed by executive producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, the minds behind CW’s other DC shows.
The show is set to debut in 2017.
