"Happy" Terrill was a superhero in New York City, under the name The Ray, in the early 1940s. His regular job was as a reporter for the Morning Telegraph.

In 1940, Happy Terrill joined the crew of Professor Styne's experimental Strato-Balloon, and the flight was considered highly risky. The craft was caught in a cosmic storm, and Terrill was exposed to a weird haze of cosmic light. He was transformed into a shining golden figure, and empowered with the ability to transmit himself in shafts of light, along with several additional incredible abilities. Calling himself "the Ray," Terrill put his amazing powers to work at crime-fighting, search-and-rescue, and other public-spirited pursuits.

In early 1943 the Ray dropped from public view.
