COMICS: DC Unveils First Look At <i>The Ray #1</i> - "The New 52" Version Of The Hero!

The first Ray was a Quality Comics character purchased by DC in 1940, and he was later retconned as a member of the Freedom Fighters. Others have since held the mantle, and now the "New 52" sees the introduction of an all new version...

Get ready for a brand new Ray! Lucien Gates’s life is changed forever when he is struck by a mysterious beam of energy that turns him into a glowing gladiator – and being a human ray of light comes in handy when his city is suddenly under attack from giant, building-sized monsters. Unfortunately, light powers are less than handy in keeping his girlfriend happy.

If...

More DCnU bad redesigns... yay?

@Jordanstine - Did that happen in the Ultimate universe?

Quasar.

The Ray's previous design was cool. Why would they screw that up? He looks like a rip off of Quasar if he somehow became a herald of Galactus. SMH!

This is a new Ray named Lucien Gates.

It looks like an alright mini, but I probably won't end up buying it.

Ray Tyrrel was better but this isn't a bad take.
Howlett - 11/21/2011, 5:53 PM
he looks old, I like the Joe Quesada design of the Ray.

i know nothing of the character but i totally agree its QUASAR if he was the herald of GALACTUS
RobinNumbah6 - 11/21/2011, 6:52 PM
I prefer the Young Justice (Original Comic) version

@NoRegrets Superman is not the first hero. Only first public hero. DC is taking everything away from ol Supes

Cool. Can't wait to pick this up! But why do we ALWAYS have a black guy as friend/sidekick? Must every show/comic has to have this formula? Couldn't it be a Latino or Brazilian/Indian etc?
