First Look: ‘Freedom Fighters: The Ray’ Promo Art
Centered on gay journalist Ray Terrill, voiced by Russell Tovey of Quantico, the new cartoon will follow the Golden Age hero’s exploits after being exposed to a “genetic light bomb” by a secret government group trying to covert light into a weapon of mass destruction. Packing some seriously illuminating abilities, Ray suits up to help Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters team.
And as you can see in this just-released key art, Ray has some very cool colleagues in what looks like Black Condor, Phantom Lady and a few others.
But in a reversal of Vixen’s evolution—the totem-enabled crime fighter began on the CW Seed as a cartoon voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke, who then scored an Arrow guest spot before Maisie Richardson-Sellers took on the role of her equally gifted granddaughter on Legends of Tomorrow—Tovey’s Ray will be introduced as a live-action iteration during this season’s four-show crossover event in November and then leap into his own animated series on the digital platform.
