The CW has released the first trailer for Freedom Fighters: The Ray, which will mark the first time a DC/CW series will feature an openly LGBTQ lead character.
CW Seed released an extended clip from Freedom Fighters: The Ray, as well as a synopsis for the upcoming show:
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.
