* HateSink: An utterly detestable human being, he seeks to subjugate and kill anyone whom he deems even slightly different or weak.

The Ray's counterpart from Earth-1. He lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and had an older brother named Malcolm who fought in the War Against Terror until he was killed in Afghanistan. As his parents' only son left, he still lived at home with them and kept his homosexuality a secret from them, only trusting his friend John with it. Ray gained light-based powers from his dying doppelgänger and used them to stop crime in his hometown, honing his skills, until he eventually found his way to Earth-X, where he decided to stay.
