The following Blu-ray was provided to me by Warner Brothers for review. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying Super Hero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this Super Hero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a Super Hero – The Ray. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!
That is the premis behind the newest Blu-ray release from DC Animated. I have always been a fan of the character. It's a fairly deep backstory as Ray is open about his homosexuality. It adds another layer onto the character. Like how he hides his identity under the mask and also hides his homosexuality from his parents.
If you have not watched the CW animated series you may wonder why this sounds so familiar. The Ray was first introduced to tv audiences on the Crisis on Earth X crossover from the Arrowverse. If you were a fan of that story line this is sure to interest you as you now can get the full backstory on his character.
It's another great one from DC and it looks fantastic on this Blu-ray transfer. Filled with bright colors that almost seem electric it's an amazing one to watch. The sound quality is out of this world as well with every bit of each battle coming through your speakers.
Fans of the DC Animated universe and just cartoon fans in general will want to pick this up and add it to their collection.
Overall 3 out of 5 stars
