Doctor Light (real name Kimiyo Hoshi) is a fictional character and superheroine in the DC Comics and Universe and member of the Justice League.
She is an astronomer who received powers from the Monitor, which allowed her to manipulate light via vega energy. Though not the villainous Arthur Light (also known as Doctor Light), Kimiyo has crossed paths with Light, and has fought him. In Prime Earth, Kimiyo was married to Arthur Light and had children with him, but she later divorced him once he became a villain. She is a member of the Justice League, and has been a member of the Outsiders, Doom Patrol, Justice League Europe, and Justice League Task Force.
She was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, and first appeared in Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 on July of 1985.
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.
On Prime Earth, Kimiyo was married to Arthur Light, and had children with him before he became a supervillain. Afterward, Kimiyo decided to become a superheroine named Doctor Light, and joined the Justice League.
