Raymond Stantz's devotion to the company was obvious when he mortgaged the house his parents had left to him to provide the capital to begin Ghostbusters Inc. Ray was also a handy man and largely responsible for the repair and modification of the Ecto-1. He wasn't particularly religious, but did seem to believe in a spiritual realm of sorts. In the video game it is shown he believes in the concept of a soul. He also states that he played a game entitled Ghosts and Gargoyles while in the seminary, indicating he may have at one time considered becoming a clergyman.
Ray is regarded by Peter as the "heart of the Ghostbusters." Indeed, Ray displays a level of ebullience when it comes to Ghostbusting and paranormal science in general unmatched by any of his colleagues (One example is were Peter was slimed by Slimer is where he exclaims "That's great! ACTUAL physical contact!"). His mention of an undersea, unexplained mass sponge migration shows he's more than eager to go anywhere it takes to study the strange and unusual.
Ray is generally the most positive of the group in outlook, however bits of cynicism will surface on occasion.
Ray Stantz alongside the other ghostbuster are send to trap all the ghost that escaped from the damaged containment unit. After the Ecto-1 crashed with a Dropship, General Zod cames out of a vortex and captures the ghostbuster in his dropship, including Stantz. Later he and his colleagues are freed by Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf, and helps them by capturing the ghosts that where protecting Zod.
Ray and the rest of the Ghostbusters are seen on the underground, (probably looking for the River of Slime like the second movie) and saw a light coming toward them, that it resulted be the trio again looking to recruit them.
During the fight on the riftloop the Ghostbusters were summoned by the heroes to help them keep Lord Vortech distracted by attacking him with their proton guns. They later escaped from the riftloop before the battle continued on Foundation Prime, since when the Ecto-1 lands on the planet it was empty. They are later seen with the other heroes after Vortech is defeated.
