Dr. Ray Stantz was one of the original Ghostbusters and was one of the most devoted to the pursuit of studying the paranormal. The Ghostbuster that most commonly wore a tan uniform with slightly darker tan trim. He sometimes earlier on wore gloves and Ecto Goggles. He came back in Extreme Ghostbusters, but instead wore a blue uniform and pink trim (Egon's old uniform).


HistoryEdit

Primary Canon HistoryEdit

In the movies he was the one that helped get them the Firehouse, and the Ecto-1.

For more information of the movie version of this character go to the movie article.

The Real GhostbustersEdit

Ray Stantz was born in the Brox. In his teenage years, Ray lived in Morrisville. Ray and the other children were scared of the haunted Pallo Mansion. [1] He had a crush on a girl named Elaine Phermon. [2] When Ray moved away from Morrisville, nobody thought he would amount to anything. [3] He attended Columbia University and studied parapsychology. He met Peter and Egon at the university.

He, most of the time, will help Winston or Egon with duties around the Firehouse. Dr. Stantz is an accomplished mechanic; overseeing most of the upkeep & maintenance for Ecto-1, as well as (doubling as 2nd string pilot) for their helicopter and (wearing them the most: on and off-duty) the Ecto Goggles.

Ray was selected to be the Grand Marshal in the Winged Puma Parade, held every 10 years, in Morrisville. [4] An old "friend" Alan Favish attempted to sabotage Ray out of jealousy. He used a Magic Spells book to empower local ghosts with negative energy. However, the energy riled up the actual Winged Puma. The Ghostbusters captured the ghost and Ray was reinstated as the Grand Marshal. Ray would correspond annually with his uncle Andrew McMillan every Christmas but the two never met in person. After McMillan passed away, Ray found out he was the first person named in the will to take a chance at getting rid of the Keystone Ghost. Whoever did would inherit Castle Dunkeld and the title of Duke. Ray and the other Ghostbusters succeeded but trapping the ghost released the Battle of Dunkeld Ghosts. Ray quickly rode a bicycle to the nearby Village of Dunkeld and bought thousands of dollars worth of electronics and convinced villagers to allow him to convert their entire fleet of garbage trucks into Ghost Traps by offering them $100 each. Ray turned over the castle to the village and declared McMillan's freeloader relatives could live in the castle as long as they paid rent to the village. After the Ghostbusters returned home, the village sent them Scottish attire and a bagpipe. Ray quickly started playing it. [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] For one of the Ghostbusters' vacations, on Ray's suggestion, they went to his cousin Samantha Stantz' Stantz Dairy Farm and helped her deal with the ghosts of The Petersons.

Ray had an uncle named Gaylord but hadn't seen him since he was a child. [10] [11] Ray inherited Gaylord's Joke Shop from his late Uncle Gaylord on the belief he was the nephew with the worst sense of humor. [12] Ray tried to prove he was funny but accidentally released a destructive pair of Imps. Once they were recaptured, Ray decided to sell the shop. [13]

Slimer!Edit

He was a friend to Slimer much like in The Real Ghostbusters.

Extreme GhostbustersEdit

After the Ghostbusters disbanded, Ray conducted pyrokinesis research at a major university in Idaho but after a minor mishap turned into a major explosion, he was terminated and took a job as a sales manager at Perpetual Motors, a used car lot. [14] In November 1997, he came back for Egon's birthday along with the others. He seems to be a more business type as of his interest in money is highlighted while at the airport, that and his massive debt. [15] [16] He wears Egon's spare uniform throughout the two episodes, which could suggest he has lost weight. His knowledge on the supernatural appears to still be up to date, as he was able to give advice to the Extreme Ghostbusters on how to bust the repeating entity. It's noted that Kylie really has respect for much of what he has to say like Egon, and likewise Ray is impressed with Kylie's knowledge of the supernatural. Interestingly, the new recruit Garrett Miller resembles him in many ways, mainly that both really like their jobs and enjoy busting ghosts. Ray was booked to teach a workshop at the Paranormal Expo in Miami for Thanksgiving. [17] However, S.I.D.N.E.E. caused Ray to miss his flight.


Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

During the Proteus incident, the Ghostbusters were accidentally teleported to a parallel dimension instead of Proteus' chosen nexus when a grateful civilian named Claudia cast a ward of protection on them. Unaware of what happened at first, they thought they were back at the Firehouse and walked in. Ray was the first to see that the second floor looked totally different and Slimer was imprisoned. Ray released him just as Egon realized something was wrong. Slimer grabbed Ray by the right arm and tossed him. They scrambled and trapped him. They soon met their counterparts, Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore, and compared notes. Ray thought the notion of parallel dimensions was awesome. He informed them about the battle at the Rockefeller Plaza that led to their arrival. Both Ghostbusters went down to the basement to look at the Interspatial Teleportation Unit. Ray was enamored by it and wanted to build one, too, once they returned to their home dimension.

Ray and Egon went with the parallel versions of Peter and Winston to the Bronx Zoo. Ray fell victim to the hypnotic abilities of the Fairy Poltergeist and entered into a trance state. In that state, he was only driven by the urge to go to the poltergeist. The poltergeist showed its true form as Ray neared it. Peter opened fire but the entranced Ray continued his path. Before he could walk into the Proton Stream, Ray was tackled by Winston. After Egon trapped the entity, Ray returned to normal. Back at the Firehouse, he was connected to the Aura Video-Analyzer. Ray was still embarrassed about what happened to him but his parallel counterpart realized he was suffering from the similar after effects of having his mind scrambled by a powerful entity. They agreed a primordial god was the culprit.

The Ghostbusters battled Proteus and managed to briefly wrangle him but were knocked down after he showed them eight futures at once. Proteus zapped the ones he wanted to his Limbo. Janine and Slimer found them shortly. The Ghostbusters were rescued and Proteus was defeated.

PersonalityEdit

Ray is the heart of the Ghostbusters. He sometimes will act a bit like a kid (he watches cartoons, reads comic books, plays with action figures, and in the episode "Mr. Sandman, Dream Me a Dream" it is shown that he believes that the Easter Bunny exists).


Relationship to OthersEdit

Peter VenkmanEdit

Peter Venkman is probably the closest to Ray, as he's shown to be almost brotherly to him.

Egon SpenglerEdit

Egon Spengler and Ray tend to be the ones who work on the technological aspects the most. They both have a deep professional respect for one another. Although Egon has shown puzzlement and/or mild annoyance when Ray exhibits childlike behavior.

Winston ZeddemoreEdit

Winston Zeddemore and Ray shared some similar interests including they love for the Ecto-1 and Game Shows. Winston was usually the one to defend Ray's childlike tendentious.

Janine MelnitzEdit

Janine Melnitz and Ray didn't seem to really ever get into any direct conflicts. Much like Winston, Janine didn't seem to have an issue with Ray's childlike moments.

SlimerEdit

Ray treated Slimer better than the rest of the Ghostbusters, especially Peter. Among the Ghostbusters, Slimer loved Ray the most.

Louis TullyEdit

Ray didn't seem to have any direct issues with Louis Tully.

Eduardo RiveraEdit

Eduardo Rivera and Ray didn't interact much.

Roland JacksonEdit

Roland Jackson and Ray seem to get along. Ray even offered Roland a deal on a used car once.

Garrett MillerEdit

Garrett Miller for the most part respected Ray. They both share many traits such as a positive outlook and enthusiasm for their work.

Kylie GriffinEdit

Kylie Griffin seemed to be as much into Ray's spiritual knowledge, and many of the things she said impressed Ray.
