They are nothing alike other than Rai may or may not have the Bloodshot nanites in him.

Well, in the "Pre-Reboot" Valiant there are some connection between Bloodshot and Rai: Rai is a sort of "long time heir"... simply put, Bloodshot find a way to pass "the blood" [and the nanites] to another person, ad from them to another, till year 4001 and Rai. However, that is a very, very, very shot version of the story

In the actual Valiant Universe [quite different from the original], all connection are still to be discovered and there is no real hint about Rai been an heir of "the blood" of Bloodshot :)

I really enjoyed the first issue of Rai. Very interesting story with him, very unique to any other character I have gotten to know. Plus the art is amazing.

I keep trying to get up to date with Quantum and Woody. I hope I do soon or I will probably have to admit defeat and let this title go.
