Let there be light!
~ Doctor Light.

Doctor Light is a hero in the DC Universe and member of the Justice League.

She was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez.


Dr. Kimiyo Hoshi was an astronomer and became a hero during the Crisis when the all-powerful Monitor zapped Dr. Hoshi with otherworldly energy. Her new power allowed her to control and absorb a variation of different light energy. After the Crisis Hoshi dawned a costume and joined the Justice League calling herself Doctor Light and even became the team leader of the European branch. Doctor Light was arrogant and left many of her teammates with a cold feeling about her.

She possessed most of the same powers as the original villainous Doctor Light, but she used her powers to establish herself as a hero in her own headstrong way. Doctor Light was also a single mother with two young children and was only semi-active in the superhero business, yet she served with both the Outsiders and the Doom Patrol. Although she is no longer a member of either team, Doctor Light remains active as a part-time adventurer.
