CW’s New Animated Series is about a Gay Superhero

The times are truly changing.

The CW just released the first trailer for Freedom Fighters: The Ray, its brand new animated series from the DC Universe.

The lead superhero in this series is The Ray and he is gay.

The Ray will be the first gay superhero member of the CW’s ever growing team of superheroes. He is also expected to cross over into the Arrowverse.

This is the official synopsis for the 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.
