Following the success of the DC Comics superhero shows like Arrow
, The Flash
, Legends of Tomorrow
, US network The CW have announced a new animated series which will have a gay hero called The Ray.
Freedom Fighters: The Ray
will differ from the comics on which the character is based: Instead of being born with powers, Raymond ‘Ray’ Terrill will have a more Marvel Fantastic Four exposure to a science experiment and gain powers.
Raymond works as a reporter before joining the Freedom Fighters to defend the world with his light-based powers.
It is hoped that should the show prove a success, the character cross over into The CW's live-action shows like Arrow
and The Flash
