    The original Ray, reporter "Happy" Terrill, first appeared as a feature in Smash Comics #14 (September 1940) from Quality Comics. Other characters with features in that title at the time were:
    Magno!
    Espionage (Black X)!
    Invisible Hood!
    Clip Chance at Cliffside!
    Wings Wendall!
    Chic Carter!
    Bozo the Robot!


    In The Ray's first story, he plans to cover the dangerous launch of a "strato-balloon" as a member of the crew!

    However, when things start going wrong during the flight, something strange winds up happening to "Happy"!
    to be continued . . .

    I always loved the idea of a guy that basically teleported inside lightbeams

    In his original incarnation, was The Ray able only to ride light beams? I've never seen anything that depicted his abilities to project light before the first Freedom Fighters series that followed the FF's 1970s reintroduction in the pages of JLA.
