Freedom Fighters: the Ray – ‘Destroy the Cortex, Save the World.’

The CW Seed has released another clip for the Freedom Fighters: The Ray animated series. The series works as a prequel to the big Arrowverse crossover event form two weeks back, Crisis on Earth-X. Where in the crossover we meet The Ray aka Raymond Terrill (Russell Tovey), an Earth-1 metahuman that works with the resistance on Earth-X against the Reichmen. The animated series tells us how that happened and how The Ray got his powers.

In the scene below, Raymond and his best friend John Trujillo (Jason Mitchell) watch a hologram project by the neural cortex of Red Tornado (Iddo Goldberg). Tornado quickly explains multiverses and how his Earth differs from Earth-1 and about the Freedom Fighters. They notice that Black Condor looks exactly like John. Tornado also explains that the information on the cortex would be devastating to the resistance if it were to fall into the hands of the Reichmen. That the cortex needs to be destroyed before that can happen. Raymond asks if that would kill Tornado who tells him that he is just out of power anyway.

Even though we see Red Tornado in the crossover, we don’t ever here him talk to say anything. Meaning we don’t know if he gets his cortex back or if the Ray eventually destroys it.

The first six episodes of Freedom Fighters: The Ray are available now on the CW Seed.
