CW Seed announced plans on Thursday for an animated series that includes the first gay superhero to lead a television show.

Freedom Fighters: The Ray will premiere next year on the digital platform.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the character will eventually cross over in a live-action form to the CW's Flash-Arrow universe.

“The plan is to have the actor who voices the lead play the character on the CW series,” Deadline reported, quoting remarks by CW President Mark Pedowitz at TCA.

The Ray is reporter Raymond “Ray” Terrill, who received light-based powers while working on a story about a secret weapon of mass destruction being developed by government scientists. He fights injustice wherever it exists as a member of the Freedom Fighters.
