Ragman Concept Art For Arrow

Today, Andy Poon, concept artist for The CW's DC Universe, released concept art of the Ragman costume that Rory Regan (portrayed by Joe Dinicol) wears in Arrow.

Ragman made his debut this season in episode No. 2, titled "The Recruits." He hunted down AmerTek Industries CEO Janet Carroll, because he blamed her for creating the bombs Damien Darhk used on "Genesis Day" that killed thousands, including his family, in Havenrock. The only reason Rory survived the blast was because his father, Gerry Regan, sacrificed himself by having his son put on his ancient and magical suit.

In the comics, Ragman is a Gotham-based vigilante who wears the mystical Suit of Souls, from which his powers come. Created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert, Ragman has a bit of a Ghost Rider thing going on, with the costume allowing him to take the souls of the guilty -- except that in the case of Ragman, he can summon their abilities later in battle. By being used in this way, the evil can actually earn redemption and passage to Heaven.
