An UNDERWORLD UNLEASHED tie-in. Neron makes the Ray an offer to rewrite history so that Death Masque never existed, erasing all the villain's evil. All Neron wants in return is the hero's soul. Meanwhile, Ray's younger brother Joshua is cornered by Death Masque.
Lobo makes a special appearance when the Ray, lost far from Earth, tries to return under his own power with Black Canary in tow. On the way, the welcome sight of an alien space station beckons them, but the only thing awaiting the Ray within it is the Main Man from Czarnia and the fight of his life!
Enter Deathmasque, a villain designed to be the Ray's arch nemesis. Their first encounter is almost fatal for the Ray, and the young hero must save Philadelphia from the very light entity that created him. Only one person can help him now-the super-powered criminal Dr. Polaris but first the Ray has to break him out of prison.
It's the long-awaited return of THE RAY, following the exploits of the young Ray Terrill, heir to the power of his famous father, the Golden Age Ray. Issue #1 opens in Hawaii, with the Ray battling Brimstone, Darkseid's giant fallen angel of destruction. And since Honolulu recently became the home turf of Superboy, it isn't long before the Metropolis Kid himself joins the Ray in a cataclysmic fight against the monster from Apokolips. But as the battle rages, the tension building between these two super-powered youths ignites...and both may end up victims of Brimstone's rampage!
