Fans of The CW’s Arrow may recall back in season 2 when Doctor Light was mentioned as an ex-S.T.A.R. Labs employee in the episode “The Man under the Hood.” Now, we have word that
he she will be appearing on the second season of The Flash.
The character was originally a male supervillian in the DC Comics universe, but was re-introduced as a female hero named Kimiyo Hoshi in Crisis On Infinite Earths back in 1985.
In the comics, Hoshi was a brilliant scientist (there’s the S.T.A.R. Labs connection) who received her photonic powers after being blasted by the Anti-Monitor. From there, she put her abilities to good use as a member of the Birds of Prey and the Justice League, among other teams.
Obviously, we’ll have to wait and see how she’s introduced on the show, but with so many bad guys gunning for Barry now, let’s hope they bring her in as some backup!
The Flash returns this October to The CW.
