The Ray was a member of the Justice League after the Thanagarian invasion.

Background information[]

  • The Ray both appeared several times on Justice League Unlimited and was referred to by name on one occasion, but it wasn't until the release of a Mattel action figure identifying the character as the Ray that his identity was confirmed.
  • In DC Comics, Raymond Terrill was told by his supposed father that exposure to direct sunlight will kill him. At the age of eighteen, Ray learns the truth about his heritage while at the deathbed of his father, "Happy" Terrill; the dying man admits that he was the original Ray, and that exposure to sunlight will activate Raymond's own light-based superpowers. As a child, he would have been unable to control such power, and thus had to be kept in darkness. At the funeral for "Happy" Terrill, Ray meets his cousin, Hank, who urges him to become a super-hero like his father. Raymond eventually decides to take up the mantle of "The Ray," with his adventures eventually bringing him to join the Justice League, and also becoming a member of The Freedom Fighters.
