CW Seed has seen how popular Vixen has become and how her transition into live action was received very well by fans. It looks as though CW Seed is looking to strike lightning twice.
According to Deadline, the series titled Freedom Fighters: The Ray, will be made with the idea that the actor, who is not yet cast will also play the character in live action form. This will mark the first time a comic book show is created with a homosexual lead in the role.
Grant Morrison revamped the character in his Multiversity series Freedom Fighters, Ray Terrill is the second character to use the code name The Ray and has been a member of the Justice League and Young Justice.
The character description is as follows:
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.
