Biography

Early life

Ray originated on Earth One in Tulsa, Oklahoma, having a older brother named Michael who fought in the War Against Terror until he was killed. The only child of the Terrills left, he still lived at home with them and kept his homosexuality a secret from his parents as he reached adulthood. Insisting on working at jobs that only helped the less fortunate, Ray worked alongside his friends Jenny Knight and John Trujillo until one day when they lost their jobs. That night, Ray gained light-based powers from his dying doppelgänger and used them to stop crime in his hometown, honing his skills. At some point, he traveled to Earth-X where his doppelgänger came from, joining the Freedom Fighters and taking up his doppelgänger's identity as the Ray to free Earth-X from the oppression of the Axis Forces. He fell in love with Leo Snart, for which he was rounded up by Nazis and taken to a camp, being given a power-dampening collar.[1]

Crisis on Earth-X

While at the camp, Ray interacted with a number of heroes from Earth One, their origins unbeknownst to him. When a Sturmbannführer came to do a check, the heroes and Ray were pulled out of the area to be executed. On their way, some of the Earth One heroes attempted to escape but were stopped by shocks from their power-dampening collar. They continued on, but before they could be shot, Leo intervened, breaking Ray's collar and allowing him to use his powers to let them escape. They returned to the base of operations of the Freedom Fighters, where Ray was brought up to speed on who they were and their abilities. He introduced them to General Winn Schott, who told them of their plans to blow up a gateway to Earth One. Alex Danvers attempted to argue, wishing to return home and help their friends, but Schott's mind was decided, a fact Ray tried to assure her. Ray and Leo left to their quarters, where the former questioned why the latter was so adamant about helping the heroes, eventually coming round to the idea. They suited up, before going to talk to General Schott. After some arguing, he agreed to give them some time, an hour. They discussed a game plan, before heading for the hangar. The group was able to get in under the guise of transporting the Führer. After some difficulties, the Ray and the Flash watched the perimeter for Red Tornado. Deciding not to give them a full hour, General Schott sent Red Tornado out, much to the distress of the two heroes. They caught up with Red Tornado, attempting to make him stop, but he was otherwise unaffected, sending them crashing to the ground.[1] Suggesting they combine their powers at once, the Ray had the Flash send lightning at him, while shooting a beam of light energy, successfully defeating Red Tornado. Successfully opening a breach to Earth One, The Ray flew through it.[2]

The heroes arrived at just the right time, the Ray and Firestorm flying in to help destroy Metallo. Sometime later, all of the combined heroes gathered aboard the Waverider, discussing their course of action, as Overgirl, who was about to go nuclear, was in Central City. They were then hailed by another timeship and the heroes watched on as the Green Arrow talked to his doppelgänger. The heroes soon after took to the streets, where the Ray flew around taking out Nazis. After the threat was eliminated, the Ray watched on as Steel caught Supergirl after falling from space. Following the ordeal, Ray decided to return home, albeit without Leo, who decided to hang around for a bit before returning to Earth-X.[2]

Powers and abilities

Powers

  • Solar energy radiation: Ray's powers are based on solar radiation that generates when he uses photokinesis and leaves a trail behind his movements, but quickly dissipates. Similar to Kryptonians, Ray can also absorb energy from the Sun. However, while Kryptonians are granted super strength, flight, and other abilities native to their species, Ray was granted the power of photokinesis: the power to manipulate light.
    • Photokinesis: Ray has the ability to manipulate light, due to absorbing energy from the Sun.
      • Hard light constructs: Ray can use photokinesis to create constructs of pure light, including his uniform.[3]
      • Invisibility/Molecular vibration: Ray is able to vibrate his body at such frequencies that it allows his photokinetic powers to make his body invisible and intangible, which can help to evade bullets.[3]
      • Light speed: Ray is capable of supersonic flight and is able to escape crime scenes without notice, he is also able to use his power to vibrate his molecules.

      • Flight: Ray can fly unassisted through the air, reaching great speeds, able to keep up with Barry Allen's running speed.[1]
